BEHIND THE MUSIC
Raised in an Oklahoma pastor’s home, DeWayne began singing on stage at a very young age and began composing instrumental and vocal music early in his teen years. His experience dealing with various musical environments and genres has shown him to be quite versatile.
DeWayne holds a Bachelor’s degree in Vocal Performance, a Master’s degree in Theological Studies, and an MFA in Music Composition with an emphasis in scoring for picture and media.
His work has been performed by symphony orchestras, national touring gospel artists, secondary and college ensembles, and various other groups around the US and in parts of Europe.
Beyond the stage and studio, he has had the opportunity to teach and lecture within secondary schools and college classrooms regarding topics surrounding music, spiritual formation, creative problem-solving, and communication.
DeWayne and his family live just outside of Hot Springs, Arkansas.
