Wayne Brown continues a musical legacy | Entertainment
Music producer Wayne Brown plans to build on the legacy that his father, 1980s recording artiste and producer Wayne Lonesome, created.
“I began producing music professionally two years ago. I grew up around music, seeing my father producing and recording music both as producer and artiste. I am an offspring of a musician so music is in my blood,” Brown explained.
He started his label Lone Don Entertainment in 2018, and last year, it scored a massive hit with Torpedo by Skillibeng.
“Having a hit song like Torpedo opened a lot of doors for me because up until today, people keep commenting that it’s one of Skillibeng’s top songs listened to by every age group,” Brown said. On May 30, Brown will release the dancehall project, the Gift Card rhythm. The project features songs from artistes like I Waata ( Outaada), Chronic Law ( Nuh Sure), and Jahvillani ( Gorgeous).
“There are a variety of issues and topics covered in these songs. There’s something for everyone,” said Brown. He said that he is bringing melody to his productions.
“If you listen to my projects up until now, all my riddims have melody to them. They have something that catches the ears of listeners that people will want to continue listen,” he said. The 29-year-old Brown is originally from east Kingston, but he grew up in St Elizabeth with his mother and attended Maggotty High.
“At first it was challenging getting my music heard but after the guidance of my dad and getting that breakthrough, things were a bit easier. I thank God every day for being there with me along the journey,” said Brown.
