About Wade Cota

Wade Cota is a singer songwriter from Phoenix, AZ whose soulful voice earned him the 4th place finalist spot on American Idol in 2019. His natural, self- taught talent coupled with his humble and giving personality, won the heart of fans not only in America but all over the world!

Wade released his first single Wake Up shortly after his American Idol journey. After completing his first US tour, Wade is back in his home town, working to release a second single and his first full album.  His band SugarWater formed in 2018. 

Wade explains that he always had a melody in his head. When he met the members of SuagarWater he was finally able to get his songs out.  You can truly hear his passion and grit when he plays live with SugarWater.  It is an experience unlike any other!
