Bryan Wayne had to quickly learn to live out the lyrics from his single, “Simplify,” when he was diagnosed with terminal ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) in 2017 and faced with the possibility of losing his ability to speak or sing, opted to keep a positive outlook and recorded his first ever full-length album, While You Wait dedicated to shed light and increase awareness to ALS. "I wanted to put my own voice on songs I have written, so that my wife and two boys, friends and family and who knows maybe even the world could hear me forever no matter what.”
Bryan still fears what lies ahead, but he’s facing it with an omnipresent smile and an unparalleled grace that touches everyone he comes in contact with.
When Bryan began selecting songs from his catalog for his album, While You Wait, he took a different approach than most. He wasn't looking for a three minute up-tempo smash that everyone can party and dance to, although he has those in his catalog. He was looking for songs that connect, songs that would allow him to interact with those who face their own challenges and with those who love a song with a deeper, positive meaning. Mostly, he wanted to provide his family with an eternal piece of his heart, and the sound of his voice.
While You Wait is available for streaming and download on all digital music platforms here.
