Morgan Wade is hot. Her debut album, “Reckless,” produced by Sadler Vaden, lead guitarist for Jason Isbell’s 400 Unit, dropped in March 2021. She has performed on CBS This Morning Saturday Sessions. Her video for “Wilder Days” was on CMT News. Fans of the Floyd, Virginia, native know her music is true to her, honest and heart felt. Now the rest of the country is embracing it too.
Morgan Wade at 5 Points
Roots2Rock streamed Morgan Wade at 5 Points Music Sanctuary in December 2019. Covid-19 was not even on our radar and the crowd came out to enjoy Wade’s music at 5 Points Music Sanctuary. The former church is relatively new to the Roanoke scene, opening in 2017. In this short time period 5 Points has had a great impact, bringing in national and international guests.
5 Points Music Sanctuary is an old church featuring a 2,000 sq/ft performance hall with a capacity just over 250 and a lower level co-working space dedicated to music teaching studios, creative suites, and a 1,000 sq/ft rehearsal stage available for band rehearsals, classes, and various community uses.
According to the non-profit’s website the mission is to “celebrate the power of music to unite our audiences and fans from far and wide, while providing a critical platform to support our group music therapy program and raise awareness and support for those with hearing loss. This includes creating full access concert experiences for those with hearing loss. Tyler Godsey, 5 Points founder says, ‘Sound is not just meant to be heard. Rather, it is meant to be felt and seen as well.
