New and upcoming 16 year old worship leader and songwriter Cade Thompson's newest single 'Lights' releases on October 6, 2017.
Lights is an upbeat and a smooth anthem declaring the truths given by God, which pulls the listener in to identify both lyrically and sonically. This single comes on the heels of a busy summer of festivals for Cade alongside Hollyn, Kutless, Shonlock, Remedy Drive and other notable CCM artists.
Cade is an energetic and soulful artist who has the ability to transform his thoughts and faith into a powerful collection of melodies and lyrics.
Cade has had an affinity with music since his toddler days when a preschool teacher noticed him harmonizing. In elementary school Cade normally progressed through piano and guitar lessons. As a sixth grader Cade was learning music through school activities when a youth leader from his church invited him to join the youth worship team. Soon, another youth leader took Cade under his wing, training him in multiple instruments, but also emphasized the importance of seeking God through the Bible outside of a worship setting. During this time Cade encountered the love of the Father and desires to lead others into that same encounter of knowing the love of God. The presence of God led Cade to make sacrifices to join his church worship team multiple days a week.
From the place of intimacy with God, Cade wrote and recorded his debut single “Faithful and True” as a 14 year old. Soon after, Cade released his second single “Treasures” with a debut music video as well. Both the video and the song “Treasures” have received international airplay on a variety of radio and streaming sites. Cade is a trained acoustic and bass guitarist, drummer, vocalist, and is developing his keyboard skills. Despite his youth Cade has had a consistent presence in the Sioux Falls and South Dakota community by either leading worship or joining worship teams as an instrumentalist or vocalist.
