Now, Haun, let’s the world in on another one of his many talents, as a top-notch “crooner.”
Wayne Haun comments: â€œI listened to every genre of music when I was growing up. From Bluegrass to Gospel, Broadway to Jazz, all those influences shaped the musician I am today. When I was introduced to Broadway, Jazz and Big Band â€“ all the amazing and lush instrumentation – I knew I wanted to write, to orchestrate, to create those sounds and I was determined to learn how!â€
