"Long captures the essence of 80s funk and R&B, delivering a song that is one part Cameo, and one part Kashif with a dash of George Duke mixed in. "

“My heart just melts every time I hear his voice.”

It is amazing how many great singers come out of the quiet city of Cleveland, Ohio. The town on the North Coast has been the home of many memorable vocalists. Add to that list singer-keyboardist Wade C. Long, who grew up in Believeland and is now based in L.A.
The former church musician has made a career as a producer for several artists and groups over the years, and in 2014 years ago he released is debut EP, Love Is. After releasing the soulful "Rise" in 2018, Wade had the pleasure of co-writing and co-producing the new single "When I Think of You" for his cousin and Grammy Award winner Joe Little III, of The Rude Boys.
Wade is now coming back in early 2020 with 3 brand new singles of his own. "Bulljivin'" is a throwback to early 80s Funk and Soul, reminiscent of bands like Cameo and Con Funk Shun. "Norm's Place" is a sensational Smooth Jazz track, perfectly fit for your Sunday afternoon drive. The lone new vocal piece is "Since I've Found You", a ballad that celebrates falling and staying in love.
