QUOTE OF THE MONTH:
“You can’t write about stuff you don’t know about. You have to live it. You have to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty. Live life to be a good songwriter.” – Dierks Bentley
Singer/songwriter Bryan Wayne had more reasons to be excited than most artists, celebrating his While You Wait album release recently with a party at SESAC with friends and family. Diagnosed with terminal ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) last year, the 14-song collection is a gift to his wife, two boys, friends and family, the ALS community and is a “thank you” to an industry that continues to support his dreams. It is available at www.bryanwaynemusic.com and all online retailers and streaming services. Several of his While You Wait co-writers joined him on stage at the album release party to give voice to the songs Bryan recorded soon after his diagnosis.
“ALS has taken my ability to sing, so I was honored my friends and co-writers stepped in to perform,” said Bryan. “I was blown away to see so many people show up and lend their support. This industry has been good to my family and me, and I hope these songs inspire people for many years to come.”
