The Hattiesburg, Mississippi native sings about relationships and mixes country melodies with a unique blend of hip-hop beats.
LECADE started releasing music independently on socials in early 2022 with his debut single “No Good” (3.7m streams) followed soon after by the album Chasing Ghosts. Consistent releases were maintained with “When I’m Gone” (36m) and “Sober Me Up” (15m) Total streams to date are now over 100m, with 2.3M monthly listeners (on Spotify alone).
Scott Frazier, Sr. VP 10th Street Entertainment: “From the moment I heard LECADE’s voice, I was hooked. I had the same reaction as I did when I discovered Bailey Zimmerman who was releasing music the same way. Once Cade and I met and discussed his vision as an artist, I was confident we could bring him to a global audience. Everyone at the company is excited to be a part of this musical journey.”
LECADE adds “10th Street has an exceptional reputation for breaking artists, so it was a no brainer for me when Scott Frazier reached out. Everyone should have guys like these in your corner.”
