When the local talent flows as the rivers on the island we start to take it for granted. Then one day something comes along as a reminder of what we have been missing. Something we have said countless times about the wealth of talent based in Jamaica, or simply coming out the island. Well this is what Wayne Scott brought back to the industry. He is a purist in his music and application.That feel of nostalgia and appreciation for a well done Reggae song that touches the hearts and the dance floor is what Wayne Scott is all about.
Born in Clarendon, Wayne grew up singing in the church choir and in school. He is a lover of old school and Motown hits which were constantly played in his home.. Wayne grew up in the era of cover versions that were hits. From the likes of Beres Hammond, Sanchez, Dennis Brown and even Bob Marley. He is also quick to point out he is a big fan of Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, Temptations, BeeGees and many more.
Wayne Scott is an artist who is ready to show what the world is missing. “We need to get back to making music with substance.” wayne stresses these points. So with his new single out now titled “FALLIN IN LOVE” which is a cover version. The original is done by “Hamilton Joe Frank & Reynolds”. First let’s highlight this was a popular song back in the seventies. Wayne coined this song like he owned it. He did a great job of coining his signature sound. It’s a well done production from start to finish. The harmonies are tight and it’s clearly reminiscent of hits made in the nineties and late eighties.
One thing is for sure, Wayne has set a bench mark where he sees his music and the future of his projects. Wayne has written over a hundred songs. So as he pointed out this is just the tip of the iceberg. Please continue to support Wayne Scott on his musical journey and support one of the best tracks out now that really can be played just about in any setting and venue.
