Thrilled to be playing a number of really fun shows in Saint John and surrounding area before I release my second full length album, titled Escape, later this summer.
This Thursday, July 3rd at 8:30PM, I’ll be playing a set at Vito’s Lounge Rothesay where I will demo a number of new songs while also playing those you may be already familiar with. One such song I’ll be releasing on this album is Seaside Polly.
Check out the demo tracks from my upcoming release, Escape.Wayne Hansen is a folk singer/songwriter from Quispamsis, New Brunswick, who continues to win over fans with his anthems of wanderlust, honest heartfelt lyrics, layered harmonies, and sincere storytelling. As a solo acoustic act he thoughtfully produces his unique folk centric sound by live layering guitar, ukulele, and harmonized vocals through a loop pedal. A truly unique show. 2013 proved to be a breakout year as he entertained countless audiences throughout Southern New Brunswick and as far away as Ottawa. Recently Wayne was nominated as Best Male Artist in Saint John, NB, was a regional finalist in CBC’s Searchlight Contest and appeared at the Fundy Fringe Festival. This past year he also shared the stage with many notable musicians including indie folk stalwart, Pat LePoidevin, noted international musician James Azola (Montreal), seasoned songwriter David R Elliot and ECMA Award Winning Ryan LeBlanc. His debut album Memories of East Africa received considerable airplay on both campus and community radio and regional CBC affiliates. His anticipate second full length album, Escape, is schedule for release in summer 2014. Easy to listen to, difficult to forget.
