THE MAN 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 is currently studying with New York City-based film composer, Rick Baitz while working towards an MFA in Music Composition. 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.
