Known for his chart topping smooth jazz CD's and his recently relaunched line of high end, high powered bass amplification, Wayne Jones knows what it takes to make great sounding, bass-led music both live and in the studio. Currently based in Melbourne, Australia, Wayne is originally from Wales. When he was 11 years old, his family immigrated to Australia. He started playing drums when he was 13, but at age 17, he suffered an industrial accident, which caused the loss of the use of his left thumb. At this point, he took up the electric bass, and he has never looked back. In addition to designing and producing some fantastic bass cabs, Wayne is primarily a solo bass player, writer and producer, and has his own record label. Wayne has CD’s out and on radio in the smooth / contemporary Jazz markets in USA, Europe & more. They feature top USA players Rick Braun, Philippe Saisse and Mike MacArthur. Joining Wayne for the Australian contingent is Fallon Williams and Ron Peers. Prior to this, for over forty years, he was a sideman in the Australian music scene, touring, sessions, etc. Wayne provided master classes and taught at various colleges.
