Breakout Nashville on SoundBetter

My 25+ years in the Nashville trenches making records as a session drummer and producer, along with all the friendships and connections I've been fortunate to make within the entire spectrum of the music business, this is what I enjoy sharing with artists I work with.

Wayne’s playing has been heard over the radio on #1 songs, #1 records, and Grammy-winning albums. His discography includes 1000’s of recordings by 100’s of songwriters and artists, including Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Big & Rich, Leon Russell, Toby Keith, Colt Ford, Steve Forbert, Matthew West, Kenny Rogers, Justin Moore, Steve Winwood, and Lady Gaga among others. Wayne’s programming experience is also extensive, having produced EDM, Pop, Hip Hop, and Pop/Rap/Country tracks for many artists. For a partial list of his album credits, check out www.allmusic.com.

    Amazing experience working with Wayne and Breakout! The track sounds unbelievably good, a total professional and radio ready sounding outcome, with Nashville session players from the hits on the radio and all - highly recommended!

    Very talented group. Top-level professionals all the way. Gave them a rough demo and they knew exactly how to bring song to life to deliver a high quality, radio-ready song. They work with you every step of the way, making sure you're perfectly happy with direction and progress of the song. Definitely using them again.
