It’s true — and Wayne Haun would be the first to admit it. He’s not the kind of producer who personally engineers his studio projects, but then he genuinely does not have the time to spare.
As a 4-time Grammy nominee, 25-time GMA/Dove Award winner, and 3-time BMI Music Award winner, Wayne Haun is known for his behind-the-scenes work as a songwriter, producer, arranger, orchestrator, record label founder, publishing company owner, and more.
As a producer, Haun instinctively creates a calm, generous environment for stellar achievements to be made by those around him, including award-winning gospel artists like Jason Crabb, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, the Collingsworth Family, Janet Paschal, Gordon Mote, The Perrys, The Cathedrals Family Reunion and more.
As an arranger and orchestrator, he has been called on to exercise his expertise for an eclectic mix of mainstream artists — from bluegrass legend Earl Scruggs to country favorites Craig Wayne Boyd and Clay Walker; and from Broadway star J. Mark McVey to pop divas Celine Dion and Jessica Simpson, to R&B stars Jill Scott and Boyz II Men.
As co-founder and co-owner of StowTown Records, Vine Records, and Sunset Gallery Music, the East Tennessee native is a respected music industry leader who is energized by discovering and mentoring talented artists and songwriters. As a staff songwriter for Word Music, Wayne Haun continues to write and arrange, while touring part-time as the musical director for Ernie Haase and Signature Sound.
