Half A Cow is proud to welcome WADE JACKSON to the Half A Cow roster with his new album...WHISKEY ALPHA DELTA ECHO (hac160d) released May 2015



Wade Jackson has returned with the follow up album to his debut record Goodbye Rain, Hello Sunshine, with the new release Whiskey Alpha Delta Echo. Wade has again teamed up with the very talented producer Liam Judson (Belles Will Ring, Cloud Control) to sculpt an album of rich melodies, lush harmonies and reverb laden guitar driven pop. It stands on the cross roads of Americana-English late 70s guitar pop with a dash of Australiana from the same era. Whiskey Alpha Delta Echo is available on iTunes and on Wade's own Bandcamp page, with a vinyl pressing to come. Wade's first album is also available: iTunes Bandcamp
