APRA award winning Sydney Singer/songwriter Wayne Gillespie has been making quality music in NZ/Australia since his first indie effort Wayward Son reached the finals of the NZ Music Awards in 84. Followed by his move across the Tasman in the late 80’s after the release of his 2nd album New Locations (produced by Trevor Lucas).
He has since shared the stage with artists such as Suzanne Vega, Eleanor McEvoy, Redgum, Neil Murray, Colin Hay, Marcia Howard, Rose Bygrave and Penelope Swales.
After a 12ry hiatus Wayne has released his 6th album FRAZZ out and is back performing again, this night at HKFC in acoustic mode with FRAZZ Co-Writer Rob Grosser on Percussion.
“I’m loving this set of songs (FRAZZ Album)… such cool playing and Wayne’s voice is perfectly tuned to the lyrics ..he is such a unique artist and I’ve always thought his music was like a collection of gems … like threading a string of pearls that trace your life one song after another . Rose Bygrave (Goanna) -2022.
“Wayne Gillespie -acoustic and solo delivers an original and completely entertaining show. His songs are tales of the everyday, spiced with dry wit and subtle ironic twists that make them gems of insight – his voice brings out the strength of the songwriting.The stories with which he introduces his songs are just as entertaining as his music.” Mike Lipscome Nelson Evening Mail.
