Wayne - Lead Vocals / Guitar

Young Wayne as we call him has been playing the guitar since aged five and started writing songs from the age of fourteen.

Wayne caught the attention of UB40 at a young age when he started performing in a band at school called Farside. He was signed to their spin off label Reflex, the band recorded an album at the legendary DEP International studio whilst UB40 were recording the album 'Who You Fighting For?'

Wayne has also collaborated with Nicky Chinn of the famous Chinn and Chapman writing team in a song writing capacity.  He has also auditioned for the second series of Fame Academy just missing out on the final cut - their loss is ULTIMATE 40's gain!


Wayne was also a leading member of the band XOVA and gained a No1 hit in..Lithuania - singing the song in Lithuanian (we're still waiting to hear this so if you have a copy let us know!)

XOVA supported Ali Campbell on many occasions playing across the country. In addition to that they have also supported The Prodigy and played alongside, Aswad, Dreadzone, The Spin Doctors and The Beat.
