ABOUT

My name is Wayne and I have been trying to figure out home recording since 2006. Starting to work some issues out, certainly been fun learning. My music is a mix of folk, punk, bluegrass, alt/rock, pop and spaghetti western and a little bit of everything I suppose. I was influenced by all music growing up so I tend not to lean too heavy toward one particular genre. My songs are recorded, produced, performed and mixed by me unless specified. I write and record mostly originals but do like to record my version of a cover song now and then.

I played bass and wrote songs on the acoustic guitar in my old band for close to 20 years. I play acoustic guitar, electric guitar, mandolin, bass, classical guitar, harmonica and various percussion instruments. I am most comfortable with the bass or my acoustic guitar in my hands, still learning the rest of them.

Snake Eyes and Ebola Rock n Rolla feature Jimmy Stiles on guitar from New Smyrna Beach. Jim's musical idea inspired me to write lyrics and sing on Snake Eyes and the punk song Ebola Rock n Rolla was written by my brother Chris. Nothin' is a cover song written by the late great Townes Van Zandt. The Bandit features the mando.
