After four years at UBC School of Music in Vancouver. Brett Wade moved to Los Angles, California to play bass with the second edition of the Electric Prunes for two years, returning to Canada in 1970 to form Stallion Thumrock with Basil Watson and Garry Bell.
Joel Wade started out playing trumpet, studying under Bobby Hales, then later was drawn to guitar. At the urging of his brother Brett, Joel took up bass and was soon recruited by Stallion Thumrock following the band's first tour of the US.
In early 1972, Bell and Brett Wade met with Claire Lawrence and Bill Henderson (The Collectors/ Chilliwack) to ask if they would consider producing Stallion. Soon after, Keith Lawrence would become their manager and arrange the details for a recording contract. Time was scheduled in at the legendary A & M studio in Hollywood, California to record the band's well rehearsed live repertoire of original songs.
The tracks took only three days to record and an additional three days to overdub vocals and mix. The self-titled LP was released under the Haida Records label - distributed by A & M Canada. The single "Mayday" was released and the band launched two Trans-Canada concert tours to promote the album including a stop at the CBC in Toronto. Within six months following the tours they had disbanded.
Brothers Brett and Joel Wade were signed to Epic Records and released the "Which Wade?" album in 1979. Following the CBS Records deal, Joel Wade signed an international songwriting deal with BMG. He has performed and produced numerous recording sessions with world renowned musicians Ringo Starr, Harry Neilson, Bob Rock, and Rik Emmett. Wade currently lives in Tulsa and records solo including his latest, 2005, CD 'Don't Look Back'.
