Luke Wade, KOA

When: Thu., June 18, 9 p.m. 2015

As a soul singer, it never hurts to have a troubled backstory. Luke Wade has it: A bout of spinal meningitis proved almost fatal. A paintball accident left him blind in one eye. A severe heatstroke left him struggling to overcome temporary brain damage and amnesia. (You might also add a 2014 stint on The Voice to that list.) The pain does him well on sophomore record The River, a cross-section of Sam Smith’s pop sensibilities and Ray LaMontagne-level gravitas. —Karlie Justus Marlowe
