New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Multi-talented singer/songwriter, Adam Wakefield, has signed with Nashville indie powerhouse label, Average Joes Entertainment. Wakefield will release two self-penned singles, "Cheap Whiskey and Bad Cocaine" and "Dry Days," on July 13, 2018, with a full album scheduled to drop later this year, it was announced today.
"I couldn't be more excited about signing with Average Joes. Never have I been surrounded by such a supportive and skilled group of people. The trust they have placed in me to create music in an environment unfettered by mainstream norms and the status quo is inspiring, and should be to anyone in the industry," said Wakefield.
"Adam's style and artistry is undeniable, and his spirit is infectious. We're excited to welcome him to the AJE family," commented Shannon Houchins, CEO/President, Average Joes Entertainment.
"'Cheap Whiskey and Bad Cocaine' is a romanticized account of being a new (and/or unsuccessful) singer/songwriter in Nashville," said Wakefield. "It's about embracing failure and making the best of things. Scotty Murray's guitar work on this one is killer."

Wakefield added, "Like so many tunes, 'Dry Days' just started as a guitar/vocal -- I thought it would end up as a straight-ahead Southern Rock tune, but we put the organ and cowbell in there and it took a groovy little trip to the French Quarter. It's a simple song about being too broke to buy booze, weed or cable tv. You know, the typical vices."

Whether it's country, jazz, bluegrass or soul, Wakefield has the ability to draw fans in with his exceptional talent both as a singer and songwriter. As a performer, Wakefield is an established pianist and recognized as a versatile musician having honed his skills over the past decade.

Following last year's extended tour filling in for The Steeldrivers' frontman, Gary Nicols, Wakefield is ready to hit the road this summer with his own band. Tour dates are quickly filling up and will be announced soon.

About Adam Wakefield
Recognized in 2017 as one of Rolling Stone Country's "10 New Artists You Need to Know," Wakefield didn't intend on becoming an artist. In fact, the New Hampshire native's original goal was to become a musician. But a move to Music City quickly cemented his place as a lead on every stage he played.

After being discovered one night at a gig in Nashville by someone from NBC's "The Voice," Wakefield landed a spot on Blake Shelton's team, where he finished second overall in the season 10 finale. His newfound name recognition was the catalyst to pursue a solo career and he subsequently released his debut self-titled EP in July 2017. Recently signed to Average Joes Entertainment, Wakefield is currently working on a singer/songwriter project due out in 2018.
