As a youngster, Wayne studied classical and jazz piano, and can now play pretty much any keyboard, and a bit of accordion, if the occasion demands it!
Wayne is an accomplished songwriter and performer. Some of his key musical achievements include supporting Take That on their Beautiful world tour, supporting The Stylistics, playing with Martha Reeves, Candi Staton, Roachford, Corinne Bailey Rae and working as Musical Director for Jane McDonald and Jaki Graham.
Writing music is a huge passion of Wayne’s – he writes most of the music for Ten Millennia and co-writes the lyrics with the lead singer, Rosie. He also arranged all of the original songs for the new album, ‘Love Won’t Wait’ (Due out on 17th August 2018), as well as the first album, ‘Ten Millennia’ which is available to buy now.
“I love performing to an audience, big or small. The build-up, the adrenaline rush – it’s so exciting. I particularly enjoy performing in a band where you get to share your skills and create a great sound together.”
Wayne is a keen traveller and loves visiting new places, which is very handy, as life with Ten Millennia keeps him on the road, bringing the music to their public.
He enjoys walking in the countryside and is a keen photographer.
