Is there any way to add tags to WAV file format; ie: Artist, Title, Album, etc..
I find plenty of MP3 tagging solutions, but none seem to be able to tag WAV files.

Are WAV files taggable?

Yes and No.  Some metadata can be stored in them, but not the type of ID3/MP3 "tags" you are concerned with:

The data stored in WAV files is really just limited to "header" data that identifies the quality, encoding, etc.  It was never intended to store the type of comprehensive data that the MP3 format was:
