Wayne Reynolds Infuses His Jazz, Pop, and Easy Listening Music with Bossa Nova Flair

Image

Wayne Reynolds, an eclectic singer songwriter, creates easy listening music infused with a number of different musical styles. While Reynolds was classically trained by Cuban guitar  legend Juan Mercadal, he is also heavily influenced by Bossa Nova masters Baden Powell and Joao Gilberto.

Reynolds has re-released his album “Another Day Goes By” this year. It contains elements of Folk, Pop, Jazz, Classical, Bossa Nova, Oldies and more! He really pulls influences from his years playing classical guitar and being on the forefront of rock in Memphis, Tennessee in the 60’s. You combine those musical qualities and add some Jazz to it and you’ve got Wayne Reynolds! As an eclectic singer, songwriter, and guitarist, Reynolds has consistently avoided kowtowing to any brand of musical dogma throughout his musical career. I’m reminded,” muses Reynolds, “of the exhortation by none other than Bobby McFerrin that we should not live in the same musical room all the time. Walk around, don’t get stuck.”

There is no doubt that “Another Day Goes By” adheres to the open-ended artistic ethos that has sustained Reynolds since the beginning of his musical journey. You can listen, download, or order the album on iTunes and Amazon. You can also download his single “A Little Gray” for free on Facebook here!
