Jason Michael Wade is an American musician, best known as the lead vocalist and guitarist of the alternative rock band Lifehouse.[1][2][3]



At the age of 15, Wade co-founded Lifehouse (originally called Blyss) with neighbors Sergio Andrade and Rick Woolstenhulme.[4][3] The band rose to fame when their debut album, No Name Face, was released in 2000.[5] As of 2019, Lifehouse has sold more than 15 million singles and albums worldwide.[6]

Solo work[edit]

Wade recorded a cover of "You Belong to Me" for the 2001 movie Shrek and its accompanying soundtrack.[7]

He released a solo album entitled Paper Cuts in 2017.[8] His followup LP, Ode to Silence, was released December 31, 2021.


In 2018, Wade formed a band called ØZWALD with Lifehouse touring guitarist Steve Stout as a side project. The duo have released numerous singles, an EP of covers, and six full-length albums: Sweet Delirium, Born in a State, Head Movies, For Polly Anna, Young Suburban Minds, and Artificial Odyssey.[9]

Personal life[edit]

Wade's parents are divorced. After the divorce, he and his mother moved to Seattle.[10] According to Wade, he used the Lifehouse song "You and Me" to propose to his then-girlfriend, Braeden, whom he married in 2001.[11]
