WADE JACKSON STEPS INTO THE LIMELIGHT WITH NEW SINGLE

NSW songwriter and filmmaker (WAITING: The Van Duren Story) Wade Jackson has released his new single ‘Limelight’ (Broken Stone Records), his first new music since his 2020 album Sensationalized. ‘Limelight‘ emerges twitching, writhing, pulsing and electronically convulsing. Like Bowie and Suicide in hi-fidelity 4K, ‘Limelight’ is hypnotic, with waning vintage synths and tribal-esque drums, the latter evolving from the coal freight trains passing through regional NSW. The middle … Continue reading WADE JACKSON STEPS INTO THE LIMELIGHT WITH NEW SINGLE
