Salt Lake City WeeklyFIVE ALBUM STUD by Gavin Sheehan November 19, 2010
Good hell did November pick up the pace from last month, as we've got five releases to talk about today. The first one we need to address slipped past us and we need to sorely correct that as best we can. The Wayne Hoskins Band has a brand new EP out titled Breaking Here. Probably one of the harder working festival bands, they started out doing random covers* in 2008 and progressed nicely into writing their own music. Not exactly what you would call a “traditional” rock band, but the sound has that mix of early 90's anthem and newer ballad driven work, perfect for large crowds and the ever persistent Bic-lighter-held-high moments. They actually held their release show last Saturday at Squatters, to what I understand was a fairly good crowd.
*as a side note. The Wayne Hoskins Band has always played originals.

DUSTIN WAYNE (6 - 6:45 p.m.)
Hails from: Salt Lake City
The sound: Indie/Americana. "I think my sound is deep and passionate, subtle and quiet building to a peak. I would compare it to Glen Hansard of The Frames," Wayne says.
Story behind a song: He wrote the song "April" for his wife (whose name is actually Sarah). "I sing about fear and desperation about losing something you already have," he explains, "and that fear can complicate and potentially destroy what is already obtained. I apologize for my inabilities and failures, and ask for hope."
You should know: Dustin is the lead singer of The Wayne Hoskins Band, who have a Web site at www.thewayne.com.
