After being classically trained on Piano in the 1970s Wayne moved onto several other instruments including the Lap Steel where he began developing the essential picking techniques. His musical journey eventually brought him to the sounds of Country Rock and Outlaw Country. The grinding chords of the Pedal Steel played by Buddy Cage and Ralph Mooney along with the haunting and ethereal phrasing of Ben Keith pulled Wayne in forever. Although he became busy with life, he maintained the love and passion for the music. At the tender age of 45 he decided to buy a Steel and get to it….He is self-instructed where the aforementioned artists are his muse. He continues to learn new material and techniques. He has recorded on several albums for prominent local artists and enjoys a busy playing schedule.
