Little Blue Suitcase

Mother-son acoustic duo from Alaska, sang old favorites and originals. Patricia toted her music in the little blue suitcase for over 45 years, which inspired the name of our group and the title track of our one and only studio album. The music was recorded in 2008, but not released online until August 17, 2019, on what would be my mom, Patricia's 74th birthday.

My name is Greg Wade. I'm Patricia Wade's firstborn. My beloved mother passed away in July of 2014 and she is missed more than words can express. I know she was so proud of this album. She'd tell me how much she enjoyed listening to it in her car as she traveled back and forth from Palmer to Anchorage. She especially liked playing it for her one and only little grandchild while driving her around, along with "Ave Maria" sung so beautifully by our favorite artist, Sylvia.

Mom and I would sing together for fun from as far back as I can remember. It was always fairly brief and sometimes years in between, but definitely fun and enjoyable each time we had
the chance to get together.

From about 2006 to 2010, we had great fun performing our music at local venues in Anchorage, Wasilla and Palmer. Those are such special memories that I will cherish forever.

This album had been kept in storage for many years. But after much contemplation, the decision was made to finally put this CD online. I'd like to think mom is pleased and smiling real big to finally have our music out in the world.

I was so pleasantly surprised and very grateful to see that the CDBaby staff picked our CD as one of their favorites!

Thank you, everyone!
Greg
