ABOUT

My name is Wayne and I have been trying to figure out home recording since 2006. My music is a mix of folk, punk, bluegrass, alt/rock, pop and spaghetti western. All my songs were recorded, produced and mixed by me. 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.

Birds Fly South is my new one, more a track to work on some new mixing ideas. I Got Everything For Christmas is one written by my brother Chris and he sings on this one as well.
