"Songs, and songwriting keeps me inspired, moving forward. I tend to scribble down notes, lyrics or just random thoughts on pieces of paper, backs of cigarette packs, sometimes on my shirt cuff. Rock n’ roll is closest thing I’ve got to a spiritual power. It’s been the higher voice in my life and it’s never let me down." - John Waite

Countless musicians of far lesser accomplishment have probably made similar statements regarding their own personal creative process, but when the confession comes from John Waite – whose been successfully writing, recording and performing some of the most listenable, enduring and appreciated popular music for more than 35 years – one cannot help but both recognize and marvel at the shimmering legacy of this British born rock star. 

The ride began when Waite was tapped as bassist and lead vocalist for the Babys who rocketed to Top 20 chart positions with a pair of infections hits, “Isn’t it Time” from the band’s sophomore LP, Broken Heart in 1977 and the monster ballad, “Every Time I Think of You” off 1978’s Head First. But it was the album’s rhythmically aggressive and seductive title track where fans got their first glimpse of the authentic John Waite, a no-holds-barred rock n’ roll performer devoted heart and soul to live performance and making sure every fan in the audience left the concert hall just as elated and exhausted as the band they’d paid to see.

John’s 1984 solo release, No Brakes, did exactly what the title inferred, barreling at runaway train speed to international acclaim and U.S. platinum success thanks to the smash hit, “Missing You,” which did not stop until it reached Number 1 on the Billboard’s Hot 100 Singles, Album Rock Tracks and Adult Contemporary charts. The following up single, “Tears” was a top 10 hit on the Billboard Mainstream Rock charts.

The story is far from over for the Lancaster, England-born rock star/balladeer/storyteller who was inspired onto his musical path by childhood blues-based heroes like Free, the Small Faces and Humble Pie, along with a deep connection to the Celtic folk music of his homeland. The legacy of John Waite is a beautiful monster of sound and vision, the chronicle of an authentic artist, a superstar, a seeker of truth and a soother of hearts. He walks and rocks among us.

JASON SINAY
Singer-songwriter Jason Sinay leads two lives. In one life, he’s a respected studio guitarist. Sinay has worked with legends such as Neil Diamond, Jerry Lee Lewis, Toots And The Maytals, and produced many notable TV spots, most recently a steamy Super Bowl ad featuring Adriana Lima. In his other life, Sinay enthusiastically leads a virtuosic Americana band with a deeply engaged fanbase. The recently released Ape & The Wall Of Questions, the band’s sophomore release, is the LA-based quintet’s most definitive studio statement. It captures that elusive jam-band ideal of live fluidity documented with pristine-but-vibey production; in short, it’s lightning in a bottle. 

It’s refreshing to feel youthful enthusiasm from such a distinguished vet. Jason Sinay was the guitarist in soul legend Ivan Neville’s touring band. Currently, he’s America’s Got Talent/Epic Records recording artist Michael Grimm’s guitarist. Sinay has also had the rare honor to play with most of his inspirations, Keith Richards, Neil Young, Kris Kristofferson, and Tom Petty’s legendary guitarist, Mike Campbell. For over a decade now, Sinay has played with Campbell in the roots rock all-stars The Dirty Knobs. Sinay also played on Neil Diamond’s career-reviving 12 Songs, produced by Rick Rubin, and he played on Jerry Lee Lewis’ late-career masterpiece, Mean Old Man.
