For Wayne Sutton, former lead guitarist and co-songwriter of ‘90s hitmakers Sister Seven, music has been a lifetime journey.
And as Sutton reconciles his 30+ year career as a musician with his role as longtime husband, father and music teacher, his new solo album Blue Worm – his third overall and first in nearly 15 years – now takes him to perhaps the most surprising place of all.
“I spent a lot of years flying by the seat of my pants musically,” Wayne admits, “and got burned out by the business side.
But when you discover a larger map, it makes you hungry to create again. The key to finding your own voice is honesty.”
