John Wayne Bailey
The early days
John's music career began as a young military brat who became a self taught drummer, guitarist, bassist, vocalist, music engineer, music producer, songwriter and recording artist. His first show was only after playing and singing for two weeks in front of over 300 listeners in a high school battle of the bands at the age of 16 years old.
Fruits of success
John ended up in Atlanta GA hundreds of shows later finding local success as an independent performer in multiple Modern Rock acts and recording music with some well known producers, record labels, and artists in the music industry.
Trials & Tribulations
In 2002 John's successful ascent took a turn for the worst as he fell into drug addiction, homelessness and the loss of everything he worked so hard to achieve. Yet John credits God's Divine assistance from misfortune to restoration. John's mission now is to inspire the world to never give up hope, even in the face of loss and disappointment. With God, All things are possible!
