Wayne has been called “The King of Juke Joint swing,” a “Roots Renaissance Man,” a “Country Singer’s Country Singer” and “Hank Williams meets Gershwin.” But the phrase most frequently echoed throughout his career is “Wayne Hancock is the real deal.” Joe Ely said it, Hank Williams III said it, Bobby Koefer from the Texas Playboys said it, as have countless music fans and writers when referring to Hancock’s authentic and original blend of honky tonk, western swing, blues and big band that he calls “juke joint swing!”
Authenticity and sincerity have been the cornerstones of Hancock’s writing and music since the start of his career. His refusal to compromise his vision and sell out his music has earned him a fiercely loyal underground following.
Hancock’s vision, as he puts it, is “to bring people together and make them feel good about music. It’s a spiritual thing and without spirituality, you’ve got nothin’. There ain’t much on the radio that strikes me as being original or from the heart, most of it’s from the pocketbook and it shows.”
Wayne is proud of his rural roots and culture and has thoroughly absorbed the spirit of country music’s forefathers such as Ernest Tubb, Hank Williams and Jimmie Rodgers. Never a mere imitator, the cutting-edge style that emerges is every bit his own. He breathes youth and driving energy into traditional country forms and adds a dash of big band horns, boogie woogie piano, scorching rockabilly beats, heavenly Hawaiian steel licks and some wigged-out hillbilly jazz guitar.
