Winners of the 2009 Posty for “Best Utah Rock Band”, The Wayne Hoskins Band has spent the last two years focused on writing and recording their music, as well as performing at featured venues around the Western United States.
Formed in 2008, band members Dustin, Dave, Mike, Carl and Eric combine to create music from beautifully powerful rock choruses in songs like “Something Better” to epic ballads like “I’ll Be Right Here”…the band has captured the attention of a large fanbase of passionate music lovers and classic rock enthusiasts. Dustin’s vocals and lyrics give listeners a window into themselves and shed light on music and emotion. Conceptually simple, the greatest element of The Wayne’s efforts is the chemistry of the musicians.
The Wayne’s resume includes live performances at THE SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL, two invitations to the exclusive Acoustic All Stars Festival in Park City, Utah, the Promenade Music Festival in Boise, Idaho and the Project Green River Music Festival. The Wayne was also a featured artist at the Utah State Fair.
Most recently, The Wayne Hoskins Band performed with SAFETYSUIT, as seen on VH1’s Top 20 Countdown, to a crowd of over 1,000+ excited fans. One fan had this to say about the show: “The Wayne Hoskins Band was AMAZING! I really enjoyed their music!” (–Ashlee from Provo, Utah)
Influenced by The Frames, Justin Currie and Todd Thibaud, The Wayne falls into a cross-genre; compared to Counting Crows, Ray LaMontagne, The Fray, Lifehouse and Daughtry, the best way to describe The Wayne might simply be – classically good.
The EP “Breaking Here” will be released NOVEMBER 13th under the ROCKFISH RECORD COMPANY label; with a SOLD OUT party to kickoff the music!
Fans are already looking forward to The Wayne’s FULL-LENGTH STUDIO ALBUM, set to release in SPRING of 2011.
THE WAYNE HOSKINS BAND – ORIGINAL SOUL, CLASSIC SOUND…
