With his debut release Mystery, Wayne Baker Brooks serves notice of a new, powerful force at play in the music world. Combining outstanding song craft, passionate vocals and a liquid fire guitar style, this talented artist manages to honor his rich blues heritage while effortlessly expanding the boundaries of the genre. Mystery is an intense sonic mixture comprised of a wide range of elements including the joyous abandon of Chicago's wild South side and the inspired devotion of Led Zeppelin at their blues-worshiping best, along with experimentation of Blues/Hip Hop/House music/Dance, Mystery also features Wayne's father Chicago Blues Master Lonnie Brooks Courtesy of Alligator Records. This should come as no surprise. Wayne Baker Brooks is known for bringing the house down. Whether performing with his own WBB Band or in the midst of white-knuckle jams with blues legends like Buddy Guy, Jonny Lang, John Mayall, and Otis Rush, or famous rockers like Chris Robinson of The Black Crowes, George Thorogood, Slash, just to name but a few, top critics of all media agree Brooks is an exciting artist not to be missed. "He's got the talent, the energy and everything else to make it click", declares the Queen of the Blues, Koko Taylor, "I'll bet my money that he'll succeed and that's something I don't do is gamble." As the son of blues super star, Lonnie Brooks, Wayne was raised in an extraordinarily gifted and hard working household.

He began his career polishing musical skills during the course of a staggering 150+ performances, year in and year out, with his father's band. It was a schooling like no other and Wayne's dazzling talent & stage presence quickly placed him dead center in the spotlight. This charismatic musician has been featured on nationwide television news programs, such as CNN Showbiz, as well as radio programs reaching approximately 15 million listeners in one days work, including The Mancow's Morning Madhouse Show, Eric & Kathy, The Jonathan Brandmeier Show and House of Blues Radio Hour. It was then he thought "I better record a CD like yesterday." In addition, his reputation has even reached the White House. On October 27th, 1999, the Wayne Baker Brooks Band performed for the First Lady of the United States, Hilary Rodham Clinton at Chess Records in Chicago.

As the conclusion of the band's explosive set, Hilary pronounced, "My husband is going to be so jealous he missed this!" Apart from playing and recording, Mr. Brooks enjoyed a cameo appearance in the Blues Brothers 2000 & Barbershop II and co-authored the book "Blues For Dummies" for the famous educational series. To date, this edition has been translated into 8 other languages, with 30 more to go altogether. Read more on Last.fm.
