NMM SoundBytes: Wayne on a Train

Arizona’s Wayne Merdinger has been writing music since he was young, but didn’t beginning recording until a few years back… at the urging of his children. With a 70s singer-songwriter flair, Merdinger’s brand of radio friendly roots rock shares its heart with the beating of classic pop and rock acts like The Eagles and Fleetwood Mac, or even the 90s college rock of bands like REM. Elements of folk, Southern rock, pop, and country all feed the sensibilities of Wayne’s latest release, Troubadour.

Today’s SoundByte is Wayne’s 4th track from the new one, entitled “The Train Song (I Saw You)”. With a Tom Petty quality to his vocals and an easy going pop rock ballad backdrop, “The Train Song” is a standout on the 6 song EP.

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
