STILL is the power-pop/rock-pop creative focus of Alaskan-born Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Wade Biery. Guitar-based pop similar to "XTC" or "Del Amitri" meshed with rock energy with a touch of country-pop added to the mix, STILL’s music is engaging from the first listen, and refreshing in it’s originality and depth.
STILL’s last CD, "I don’t mind" generated considerable interest and anticipation in listeners familiar with STILL. Wade’s solo acoustic shows and full band STILL shows have toured the West coast and Southwest of the US extensively, as well as selected dates in Europe.
STILL began with the 1998 release of the debut CD "The Distance". Wade Biery wrote and produced "The Distance", while playing most instruments on the CD and performing all the vocals. After the release of "The Distance", STILL headed out on the road to to promote the CD. Along the way STILL was able to gather quite a bit of radio airplay along the West Coast and in Alaska, many positive and enthusiastic reviews, airplay on Ellen K’s nationally syndicated radio program, television airplay in Southern California, sell a ton of CD’s, and reach ..4 in GarageBand.com’s $250,000 band contest. In the fall of 1999 STILL returned to the studio to record the new CD "I don’t mind" with Wade taking on the same duties as he did with the making of "The Distance". Top Los Angeles-based studio and touring musicians contributed their skills as well, bringing an extra depth to Wade’s songs.
In the past Wade has had the good fortune to perform with many excellent performers in the music business ranging from Leanne Rimes and Carlene Carter to Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh, Dillon O’Brian, Joe Cocker, The Turtles, Latin-Rock superstar Miguel Mateos, Christopher Cross and many more, traveling to many parts of the globe in the process.
