Artist Biography

W. Wade and Trena Stooksberry (The DOVES) hail from beautiful Macon, GA – a town located an hour south of Atlanta, renowned for its amazingly rich musical heritage (Lena Horne, Little Richard, Otis Redding, James Brown, The Allman Brothers and Capricorn Records, Mark Heard, Mike Mills and Bill Berry of REM, et. al.), as well as its signature antebellum architecture, which was spared by Sherman during his march to the sea.  Wade also claims musical DNA from his childhood in Memphis.
They have taken all these influences, and many more, to forge a sound both immediately familiar, and uniquely their own; spanning a gamut from Classic AOR to Adult Contemporary to New Wave, Blues, British Invasion, Southern Revival – and of course, being Southerners, Spiritual.
The DOVES have been capturing attention and acclaim from radio stations and bloggers both at home and abroad:  New York City, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Baltimore, DC, LA, Seattle, San Francisco; London, Wales, Germany, the Netherlands, Paris, and elsewhere.
Call it “the superior arrangements… and perfect harmonies of the couple” (German blogger Walter H., “A Few Good Times in My Life”); or call it 
"Lush melodies, mystery and simplicity,
the profane and the sacred, driving
acoustic lyricism. The alternative to
the alternative”
All the best,
Wade & Trena

Press Release
The 120 mph motorcycle spree through the stalled traffic of the rush hour metropolis…
Standing on the edge, with nothing between between you and the ground but 3,000 feet of air and a nylon canopy folded into a pack…
To feel your heart pumping in your chest, adrenaline firing every nerve in your body, dancing on the razor thin line between life and death, with no margin for error.
To escape, if only for a moment, the bland banality of a world devoid of significance, where meaning and purpose have been evacuated, and everything runs together into a homogenous slurry of mass-produced objects and images and sensations.
To go beyond the limit of fear, into an immediacy which screams with extreme danger, and enter into a mode of existence where you are truly and fully alive…
Or to sit in peaceful contemplation of such a phenomenon.
Either way, the steady drumbeat of your “Pulse” — thump, thump, thump —
is all that stands between you and eternity.

"Pulse" is the latest addition to The DOVES growing catalogue:
The “musical smorgasbord” of their 6-song EP, “Day (One)” which ranges from acoustic lament (“Dirty Words”), to guitar-driven New Wave (“Day”), to electronic synth (“Some More Than Others”), to glorious chorale (“Out of the Wood”), to “grunge meets Latin in Motown” ("Angeline"), to soulful blues (“Everybody’s Happy But Me”) –
 their follow-up “double-sided single” of catchy pop-rock, “Wild and Strange/Shut My Mouth” –
and their most recent offerings, “Mirage” (a galloping reflection on the boundaries of reality:  is our world really a “Mirage”?); “The Fine Line” (the pathos involved with choosing to “walk the line”, a la Johnny Cash – or not to); “Why Did You Hurt Me?” (which arrives like a retro echo from the golden age of radio); “King of Kings” (The DOVES take a gospel turn…); and "The Day You Were Born" (20th century pop/rock) . 
The DOVES express an effortless shifting of musical genres that confirm what Dan Herman of Radio Crystal Blue remarked on his “Novus Ordo” broadcast:  “they have something unique up their sleeve…”.
