Maybe Next Year (Holiday Song Sample)

Original Christmas/Holiday song. Multi-instrument home recording.

I'm always trying to craft little bursts of rock and roll sunshine that simultaneously feel fresh and familiar; something that I got my start with songwriting in Chicago power-pop band Treaty of Paris. I currently perform as a solo artist and as a guitar/co-writer with the band Ryan Powers and the Secret Weapons. I have been commissioned to write anything from wedding and engagement songs to roommate tributes and going-away-party jams. I write songs that stick, and I'd love to write one for you.

Let Dan Wade Write You a Song!

  • If you want a custom song but you're on a budget, no worries - Let's do it up punk rock style with a 60-90-second home recording of whatever you want - podcast jingle, birthday song, anniversary ode, party jam, engagement serenade, friendship anthem. Can be as simple as a guitar and a vocal, or as complex as guitar, bass, drums and vocals.
  • Single Instrument (Guitar is my specialty but I can make it happen for you with a piano or ukelele as well), single vocal full song with multiple verses, a killer chorus, a bridge to bring it all together and memorable hooks.
  • The Deluxe price point gets you a multi-track home recording with all the bells, whistles, guitars, bass, electronic drum samples, percussion, piano, synthesizer, organ, oohs and ahhs you can handle.
  • If you're looking for a little more bang for your buck, let's dig in and write a concept E.P.! Four songs, multi-track home recordings, minimum two minutes each, maximum five minutes.
