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 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.
This past year Wayne shared the stage with many notable musicians including Canadian legend Garnet Rogers, must-see performer Andy Brown, indie folk stalwart Pat LePoidevin, noted international musician James Azola (Montreal), ECMA Award Winning Ryan LeBlanc, and the affable award winning Tomato/Tomato.
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.
