After signing a publishing deal in 2016 with Black River Entertainment, Nick Wayne’s voice and songwriting talent has finally been released to the world. Wayne has been performing his songs around Nashville for a while now and finally on October 19, the day finally arrived that he released recorded music. Two Sides includes two tracks, “How Do I Get Close” and “If You Ever Wanna” which feature Wayne’s distinct vocals, crazy range, and insanely scary good songwriting skills. It won’t be long until the country music scene notices his catchy, well-written songs.
”How Do I Get Close” is a heartbreak ballad that proves he’s a vocal powerhouse. His vocal range transitions with such ease. Wayne performing this track live is a goosebumps experience. This track has a touch of soul and the blues brought into country. He usually performs this song with Hannah Ellis and Josh Kerr, who are also the co-writers. They’re all best friends and not to mention Ellis being Wayne’s longtime girlfriend, their harmonies blend perfectly together. Ellis is also featured in the music video for “How Do I Get Close.” Following that vulnerable track, “If You Ever Wanna” is a catchy, upbeat melody written by Wayne and Justin Ebach that shows his “other side” and what he’s capable of.
Recently, he opened up for Maren Morris at Mohegan Sun’s Wolf Den and undoubtedly will get more opportunities to showcase his talent. These debut tracks are just enough to capture your attention and keep you impatiently waiting for Wayne’s future projects.
