Wayne Hansen

Folk
Genre(s): 

From Quispamsis, New Brunswick, Wayne continues to win over fans with his anthems of wanderlust, honest heartfelt lyrics, layered harmonies, and sincere storytelling. As a solo acoustic act he meticulously produces his unique folk centric sound by live layering guitar, ukulele, and harmonized vocals through a loop pedal. A truly unique show.

Wayne continues to entertain countless audiences from New Brunswick, to Ottawa, to Cape Breton. Recently nominated for Best Male Artist in Saint John, NB, regional finalist in CBC’s Searchlight Contest, and appearing at numerous festivals and events.

Sharing the stage with many notable musicians including the iconic Garnet Rogers, indie folk stalwart Pat LePoidevin, the must-see Andy Brown, noted international musician James Azola (Montreal), ECMA Award Winning Ryan LeBlanc, and the affable award winning Tomato/Tomato, Wayne has carved a name for himself a a unique songwriter and performer. His voice solidly refined after years of songwriting, traveling, and performing he seemlessly mashes technology with original folk songs; the result is a multi-layered fusion with a complete unity of voice and perspective.

Both full length albums, Memories of East Africa and Escape, received considerable airplay on campus and community radio and regional CBC affiliates.

Easy to listen to, difficult to forget.
