About:

I am a musician, singer, and songwriter doing this part time but have been doing it all my life. I started singing before I could talk at the age of one and wrote my first real song at 15 years of age. (If you count avant-garde as a song, then the age would be 8.) I currently own my own recording studio with my father and I write, perform, and record my own music (and other's from time to time.) I also have a home studio where I can record demos and post them on youtube as well. I use a free shareware program called Audacity as my recording program where you can download at various sites, including at http://audacity.sourceforge/... where I got it. Just because I may use some free and bargain priced equipment, the sound, I feel, doesn't compromise the work and I try to make it the utmost in quality. I am cataloging as many songs as I can for the public to hopefully enjoy and to pass on my legacy. My son is becoming quite the musician and not only is he following in my footsteps, he's actually surpassing what I was able to do at that age. I also hope the public will enjoy the songs I've written over the past 3 decades. I have many more to still record, but what I have, I will continue to post. For song "videos" and some live performances, please check out:

  • CAUSE I MISS YOU
    CAUSE I MISS YOU This song was recorded at Audio Recording, Inc. in Seattle by legendary engineer, Kearney Barton (who recorded The Kingsmen "Jolly Green Giant" of "Louie, Louie" fame, The Sonics "Psycho", The Frantics "Werewolf", "Angel Of The Morning" by Merrilee Rush and many others.) It was an 8 track analog studio, recorded onto 1 inch reel tape. To finish off this particular mix, I had to convert it from a cassette format (which was the only format I had this in) that was about 17 years old onto the Audacity program on my computer with a JVC TD-W254 Double Cassette Deck 3 motor Silent Mechanism. Hope you enjoy it since it was a fun process to relive again. The players were: Wayde Brown (me) on vocals, lead and rhythm acoustic guitars, fretless bass and claves, Donna Austin on the female lead vocal, and a teenaged Mike Penland on drums. I wrote this song back in 1991-1992. It took only about 2 hours to fully write. I hadn't written a real song with a ¾ time signature before and I wanted a waltz feel. The lyrics were inspired as if a loved one had passed away and couldn't get over the initial pain. I always meant for this song to be sung and echoed back from my voice to a female voice, sharing the pain of what had taken place. On the final recording, you can tell my voice is more surreal (sung through a filter) and that the female voice is more grounded, providing the feel that I was looking for concerning the characters involved. Even though the male in the story doesn't know that he has passed away at first, he later feels ready to cross over, while the female hasn't accepted it yet because she misses him too much. It's about the sharing of souls but the one soul is ready to move on while the other one is stuck, since she knows living alone after being with the love of her life for so many years will be painfully difficult, but they both understand why they are feeling what they are feeling. It's because they miss each other. This is the 418th song I wrote. CAUSE I MISS YOU I KNEEL BY A FIRE LOOKING FOR TRUTH. WISHING TO BE THERE WITH YOU! MY HEART BURNS HOT, JUST LIKE THE FLAME. FOR YOU'RE GONE AND I CAN'T HELP CRYING! CAUSE I MISS YOU. I CALL YOUR NAME WHEN I'M ALONE. AND DO YOU KNOW THAT I AM SO LONELY? ETERNITY SINGS A SOLEMN TUNE. ECHOES IN WHISPERING GLOOM, CAUSE I MISS YOU. YOU SPEAK TO ME WHEN I'M SLEEPING. YOU SAY TO ME, "BE STRONG!" I FEEL LIKE DYING SINCE YOU'VE BEEN GONE. (SOLO) GOD TOOK YOU HOME, RESTING IN PEACE. AND I KEEP ON DREAMING OF YOU. YOU'RE IN MY SOUL, ALWAYS TO BE; TORMENTED AND IN AGONY. CAUSE I MISS YOU. OO! Written by Wayde K.

  • I DON'T BELIEVE YOU ANYMORE
    I DON'T BELIEVE YOU ANYMORE This song was recorded at Audio Recording, Inc. in Seattle by legendary engineer, Kearney Barton (who recorded The Kingsmen "Jolly Green Giant" of "Louie, Louie" fame, The Sonics "Psycho", The Frantics "Werewolf", "Angel Of The Morning" by Merrilee Rush and many others.) It was an 8 track analog studio, recorded onto 1 inch reel tape. Between 1988-1994, I recorded a few dozen songs at Audio Recording, Inc. I returned there once in 2000 for one recording, then again on August 2nd, 2002 for this recording. I have returned there only one other time later in 2004 for a recording of the single CD version of "Jaydena." The CD album version was recorded at Mirror Sound Studio. For this particular recording, I once again performed all the instruments. It was a good recording though I never considered it finished until I did some minor overdubs with keyboards, etc. This song was already mixed onto a CD format, so I didn't need anything except my computer to transfer it over to the Audacity program. This song is #488 that I wrote, though it was actually first recorded around songs #467-468. I just didn't finish it until recently. This song was very personal to me. I was in a long distance relationship that didn't even have a chance to work out. This woman broke my heart in a big way. I had to write about it for me to move on. However, as I was writing this song, I realized it wasn't any run of the mill tune I was cranking out. It was a little more special than that. I took about a month to write it, choosing my words carefully, and working out every detail musically and melodically. I wrote half of this song in front of my then girlfriend who now is my wife. She was impressed that I could write a song and perform it as well as pouring my heart into the words I wrote. I found this to be very attractive concerning my future wife since she didn't get jealous about it nor was she overtly critical or bored with what I was going through. So, in this song, I lost a girlfriend and gained a wife. I find that this song has similar ties to the one I wrote called, "You Don't Want My Love Anymore." But it is this song that is most personal to me for the reasons mentioned above and beyond. This song ties up my entire life of bad relationships and unhappy endings and puts it all into perspective. Prior to meeting my wife, I vowed never to marry again under any circumstances, and most of my friends either believed that would happen or agreed that was probably the best thing. So, this song would probably be my favorite song that I wrote and one of the reasons why I decided to perform all the instruments in it, even though my keyboard skills are very amateur. This song was personal and I kept it that way, until now, for now, I can share it with people. I DON'T BELIEVE YOU ANYMORE YOU HAD ME BELIEVE THAT THE WORLD COULD BE A GENTLE AND BETTER PLACE, TO SHARE MY FEELINGS JUST TO YOU AND THE BEAUTY OF YOUR FACE. YOU MENDED MY SPIRIT AND HAD MY SOUL WRAPPED AROUND YOUR LIFE; BECAME ENTWINED, AND FOR THE FIRST TIME, I WANTED YOU AS A WIFE. ONE SLEEPLESS NIGHT, YOU GAVE YOUR PASSIONS TO SOMEONE ELSE YOU TRUST, BREAKING MY INNOCENT FANTASY, REDUCING LOVE TO LUST, THUS SHATTERED ILLUSIONS I KEPT WITHIN MY LONELY, BURNING HEART. MY SOUL NOW FRACTURED DEEP INSIDE AND TOTALLY RIPPED APART. BUT I DON'T BELIEVE YOU ANYMORE. THE LOVE I FELT HAS ENDED FOREVER MORE. AND I CAN'T TRUST YOU ANYMORE. AND I MISS THE FEELINGS—THE MEANING THAT FRIENDS ARE FOR. YOU SAID YOU CAN'T BE WITH A MAN THAT YOU DON'T RESPECT, OR WITH A PERSON WHO WILL TRUST YOU ONLY THROUGH NEGLECT. YET I CAN'T FACE MY LOVE FOR YOU, WHICH, SADLY, HASN'T GROWN, NOR GIVEN A CHANCE TO FLOURISH AND TO BLOSSOM ON ITS OWN. WE HAD AN ARGUMENT THAT WE WEREN'T TRULY A PAIR, OFFENDING ME AND DESTROYING YOU, OUR PAIN DIDN'T SEEM FAIR. YOU REGRET YOU TOLD ME SECRETS FOR WHAT HAD TAKEN PLACE. I WON'T REGRET I'LL NEVER FORGET THE BEAUTY OF YOUR FACE. BUT YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME ANYMORE. THE LOVE YOU HAD, SUSPENDED, FOREVER MORE. AND YOU CAN'T TRUST ME ANYMORE. AND YOU MISS THE FEELINGS—THE MEANING THAT FRIENDS ARE FOR. (SOLO) YOU SAID YOU'RE SORRY FOR THE HURT AND SHARING ME THIS PAIN. I WISH THAT I COULD SEE THERE'S SOMETHING ELSE THAT WE MAY GAIN. SO IN OUR PARTING, I MUST SAY JUST ONE LAST THING TO YOU, THAT I LOVED YOU DEARLY AND I WISH YOU LOVED ME TOO. (BREAK) BUT WE DON'T BELIEVE IN US ANYMORE. THE LOVE WE HAD IS GONE FOREVER MORE. AND WE CAN'T TRUST US ANYMORE. AND WE MISS THE FEELINGS—THE MEANING THAT FRIENDS ARE FOR. AND YOU DON'T WANT ME ANYMORE. WE'VE BROKEN OUR DREAMS FOREVER MORE. I'M AFRAID TO TRUST YOU ANYMORE. WE'VE LOST THE FEELINGS—THE MEANING THAT FRIENDS WERE FOR. Written and performed by Wayde K.

  • YOU DON'T WANT MY LOVE ANYMORE
    YOU DON'T WANT MY LOVE ANYMORE This song was recorded at Audio Recording, Inc. in Seattle by legendary engineer, Kearney Barton (who recorded The Kingsmen “Jolly Green Giant” of “Louie, Louie” fame, The Sonics “Psycho”, The Frantics “Werewolf”, “Angel Of The Morning” by Merrilee Rush and many others.) It was an 8 track analog studio, recorded onto 1 inch reel tape. This song was recorded along with 13 other songs in a 12 hours session. It was the first session where I met Kearney Barton. I wanted to do this since I knew The Beatles recorded some of their best sounding stuff very much like this. To this day, I like the fast pace of music since it seems more lively to me. By taking too long on a song and second guessing yourself, you tend to bog down the creative process. I'd rather have a few rough areas and even mistakes in songs while having fun than spending months on a perfect recording that stifles creativity. This song features Wayde Brown (me) on guitar and vocals; my dad Clinton Brown on bass, Bill Fletcher on drums, and Sam Haylor on backing vocal. (I used the Audacity program at home to add keyboards and flesh out the backing vocals a little bit. The song also had one timing mistake that was corrected as well.) When I first was prepared to sing the lead vocal, both my dad and I warned Kearney that this lead vocal will most likely blast him away so beware on those controls. He said he was ready. Then, when I hit the first harsh notes for the chorus, he nearly fell out of his chair and had to stop me so he could readjust and do it again. He said he hadn't heard anyone hit notes like that since Ann Wilson of Heart. (Now talk about a compliment!) I do remember after the session was over, Kearney said he was very impressed at what we accomplished, especially since we never met before and had barely talked about a game plan. We kind of just went in and did it. The 12 hours included a quick, rough mix down as well. This is one of four songs that got radio play. Not bad for not being a 45 single or anything. I think the harsh vocals I had gave the song a push where people seemed to like it. To finish off this particular mix, I had to convert it from a cassette format onto the Audacity program on my computer with a JVC TD-W254 Double Cassette Deck 3 motor Silent Mechanism. This is song #223 that I wrote. It's about a gal I fell for but she broke my heart. This is the person who spawned about a half dozen songs before I quit writing about her. It was this song, along with “(Why Do) You Torture Me” that I was able to move on. I had several people tell me that this is the best song that I’ve written and that I may never write one better. Some argue that I should use more distortion on the guitars and so on, but I disagree. It's not meant to be a 70's rock anthem. It's a love ballad with a hard lead vocal push. I'm very happy with the outcome, especially since I can't sing like that anymore. I was 18 years old when I hit those notes for this recording. YOU DON'T WANT MY LOVE ANYMORE SINCE YOU'VE LEFT ME, I'VE BEEN ON MY OWN. UPSET AND TIRED, I WISH YOU'D COME HOME. I'M SO UNHAPPY. I FEEL MORE THAN SAD AS I'M PRETENDING NOT TO FEEL SO BAD. LET ME TELL YOU, I MISS YOU SO. WITH THE PAIN I FEEL, WHY'D YOU HAVE TO GO? AND THERE'S SOMETHIN' I STILL NEED TO SAY, I'M LOVING YOU ALWAYS, EACH AND EVERY DAY. BUT YOU DON'T WANT MY LOVIN' ANYMORE, AND YOU DON'T WANT MY KISSES ANYMORE. WITHOUT YOU, WHERE AM I TO BE? I'M LOST IN A WORLD OF REALITY. THOUGH YOU'RE GONE AND WITH ANOTHER MAN, I'LL KEEP ON GOING, TRYING THE BEST I CAN. FOREVER REMAINING IS THE LOVE I KEEP INSIDE. HOLDING BACK THE TEARS, I FEAR TO CRY. BUT YOU DON'T WANT MY LOVIN' ANYMORE, AND YOU DON'T WANT MY KISSES ANYMORE. WITHOUT YOU, WHERE AM I TO BE? I'M LOST IN A WORLD OF REALITY. (SOLO) ALL I HOPE IS FOR YOU TO FEEL FREE, BUT STILL I THINK OF THE WAY IT USED TO BE. I'VE SAID ENOUGH. NOW LET TIME BEGIN. I'LL WAIT UNTIL THAT DAY TO BE FRIENDS AGAIN. BUT YOU DON'T WANT MY LOVIN' ANYMORE, AND YOU DON'T WANT MY KISSES ANYMORE. WITHOUT YOU, WHERE AM I TO BE? I'M LOST IN A WORLD OF REALITY. Written and performed by Wayde K.

  • ALL OF MY LIFE
    ALL OF MY LIFE This was my first attempt at writing a slow (or, at least semi-slow) song. I had written 13 songs by this point, (with the 14th one being written by my dad’s friend which was a slow song, but I didn’t have much to do with it except a few lines and chords changes) and my father suggested I try my hand at writing a ballad. This is the result. It’s not a bad attempt and the chorus is a bit catchy. I remember my dad writing the bass part years ago and when I recorded this on 1/25/2014, my dad was there to hear it. As he said, he thought my bass playing and writing improved highly in this song, but I told him it was the bass part he wrote for it. Then he laughed and said, “I thought it sounded familiar.” That’s his sense of humor! He knew it was his bass part. I just emulated it the best I could and it seems I was successful by my father’s reaction. I also remember this being a song where one line is written in a question, as if the person is talking to themselves, but then coming to realize the reality of the situation with the line that follows. It’s like being in a relationship that you tell everyone and yourself that it’s wonderful, but in reality, it’s already failed. Pretty “deep” for a 15 year old writing this stuff, but, for some reason, I had it in me and it wanted to come out—in the form of this song. This is song #15. ALL OF MY LIFE WHAT CAN I SAY? LOVE CAME TO ME TODAY. WHEN I MET YOU, MM, MY LIFE WAS EMPTY TOO. I CAME TO YOU AND SAID, “YOU’RE ALWAYS IN MY HEAD. MY LIFE IS NOT WORTHWHILE IF I CAN NOT SEE YOU SMILE.” ALL OF MY LIFE DEAR, EVERYBODY SAID, YOUR LOVE FOR ME WILL SOON BE DEAD. YOU ARE MY LIFE GIRL, WHAT’S MORE TO SAY? ALL I CAN DO IS GO HOME AND PRAY AND THERE I’LL STAY. THERE I’LL STAY. WHAT CAN I SAY? LOVE CAME TO ME TODAY. WHEN I MET YOU, OHO, MY LIFE WAS ALL THROUGH. WHAT MUST I DO? YOUR LOVE FOR ME ISN’T TRUE. WHAT SHOULD I SAY? LOVE LEFT ME TODAY. ALL OF OUR LIVES DEAR, LOVE WASN’T THERE. LOVE WASN’T GOOD TO ME OR THE THINGS WE SHARED. ALL OF YOUR LIFE GIRL, YOU WILL SEE—THAT EVERYTHING WE DID WILL ALWAYS BE HERE WITH ME; ALL THOSE MEMORIES. Written and performed by Wayde K. Brown & The Santairs Copyright 2014—All Rights Reserved.

  • HEY!!!
    HEY!!! This song is written back around 1986 or so. It’s a simple story about two young people who love each other but just had a minor argument, but they think it may be over. They’re not experienced enough in the feelings or love to know what they should do. So, they fight, make up, and discuss whether to keep on going. I re-wrote some of the lyrics in 2014 to flow a little better with the melody, but other than that, the story pretty much remains the same. Besides, I always wanted to write a song with me yelling the word “HEY.” I took a different approach to recording and mixing this song as well. I used a fuzz bass sound using a guitar pick to pluck the strings and I used a late 50’s sounding effect replicated by the Boss GT-8 pedal I have, so the guitars would sound grittier. I also mixed it so it sounds louder than normal compared to the usual mixes I tend to do. Everything about this song, musically, needed to have that edge of overdrive that I was looking for. This is song #57. HEY! HEY, WON’T YOU COME OUT AND PLAY? HEY, CAN’T YOU HEAR WHAT I SAY? THEN YOU COME ON RUNNIN’--BACK TO ME BABE, AND THEN YOU SAY HEY, DO YOU KNOW WHAT I KNOW? HEY, YOU DON’T WANT ME TO GO? AS I HELD YOU NEAR, LIKE I DO EVERYDAY. I JUST WANTED YOU TO STAY. YOU LIKE TO DO ALL THESE THINGS TO ME. ALL I WANTED WAS YOU NEXT TO ME. HEY, I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY. HEY, IT’S THE PRICE THAT WE PAY. I DON’T WANT YOU TO GO. I WANT YOU EVEN MORE. I NEED YOU SO, SO HEY, I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO. HEY, CAUSE I’M CRAZY ‘BOUT YOU. I WANT YOU NOW. I WON’T GO AWAY. LOVE IS ALWAYS HERE TO STAY. WHAT CAN WE DO? WHAT SHOULD WE’VE DONE? WE HAD SO MUCH LOVE AND FUN. HEY, HEY NOW! I SAID HEY, I DON’T WANT YOU TO GO NOW. HEY! Written and performed by Wayde K. Brown & The Santairs Copyright 2014—All Rights Reserved Recorded at The CELL BLOCK Studio in Auburn, WA.

  • KISS ME NOW
    KISS ME NOW This song was recorded at Audio Recording, Inc. in Seattle by legendary engineer, Kearney Barton (who recorded The Kingsmen "Jolly Green Giant" of "Louie, Louie" fame, The Sonics "Psycho", The Frantics "Werewolf", "Angel Of The Morning" by Merrilee Rush and many others.) It was an 8 track analog studio, recorded onto 1 inch reel tape. This was one of the few songs that was recorded, pretty much, totally live. (It had one minor 4 second overdub due to a mistake.) It was Wayde Brown (me) on guitar and lead vocal, Sean Crain on bass and backing vocal, and Dan Penland on drums and backing vocal. To perform these instruments live in a studio usually doesn't gather good results, but Kearney was so good at what he did, he captured a performance that we couldn't let go (hence the minor overdub.) We wanted this song to be as simple as possible recording wise. To finish off this particular mix, I had to convert it from a cassette format (which was the only format I had this in) that was about 17 years old onto the Audacity program on my computer with a JVC TD-W254 Double Cassette Deck 3 motor Silent Mechanism. A final remix was done on 8-20-12 at MINE studio. This is song #163 on the ‘written already’ list. I was listening to a lot of Buddy Holly and The Beatles at this time. The Beatles' song "Every Little Thing" inspired the writing of this tune while Buddy Holly inspired the vocals and rockabilly feel. The song is as simple as it can be, from the music to the words. I wanted it to be a simple love song and nothing else, and it seems to work as such. KISS ME NOW KISS ME NOW! SHOW ME HOW! EVERY LITTLE THING THAT I WANT TO DO, ALL THE LITTLE THINGS I'LL DO WITH YOU, EVERY LITTLE THING I WANT TO BE, HOLD MY HAND AND WE SHALL SEE, OHO! EVERY SINGLE GIRL THAT I HAVE KNOWN, THEY HAVE LEFT ME ALL ALONE. SHOW ME THAT YOU WILL BE TRUE. SAY YOU LOVE AND WANT ME TOO, OHO! KISS ME NOW AND SHOW ME HOW. LOVE HAS COME TO ME. KISS ME NOW AND I'LL KNOW HOW, YOU'LL SEE. Written and performed by Wayde K.

  • LEANNE
    LEANNE On the behest of my cousin John, this song came flying out. It pretty much wrote itself. John asked me to write a song about a girl named Leanne and that they were a couple that recently broke up due to his ignorance but that he still loves her dearly and wishes she would come back. He pretty much said these words to me and I turned them into lyrics so it would fit the song that was forming in my head. This may not have been the love song he was hoping for, but I always liked the tune, mostly because of the bass part my father wrote for it. He turned some of my songs from average to good just by throwing in some great bass lines. The only gripe about this song, for me, was that it switches from 3rd person to 1st person after the second verse. This was by design so I could get the lyrics the way I wanted, and I felt that from the bridge onward it would be acceptable. I know many songs do that, but I didn’t do that very much until this song. Then I thought to myself, who cares, I don’t follow rules very well anyway and besides, it’s my song. This is song #204. LEANNE I MET A GIRL, HER NAME IS LEANNE. SHE WAS MY GIRL. I WAS HER MAN. I LOVED HER MORE THAN I THOUGHT I COULD LOVE HER. OH I WOULD LOVE HER IF SHE CAME BACK HOME. I WAS A FOOL WITH NOTHING TO SAY. I MADE HER LEAVE WHEN I WISHED HER TO STAY. NOW SHE’S GONE, I KNOW WHAT SHE’S GOING THROUGH. I LOVE HER OH SO TRUE. “I LOVE YOU”, IS WHAT I SAY WHEN SHE’S AWAY. WHEN I SAY I WAS WRONG, PLEASE BELIEVE THAT I’M SINCERE. IT WAS MY FAULT FOR LETTING YOU GO, WHEN I KNOW I NEED YOU SO. I LOVE A GIRL, HER NAME IS LEANNE. PLEASE COME BACK, I KNOW THAT I CAN BE A GOOD AND LOVING MAN TO YOU. I LOVE YOU, YES I DO LOVE YOU. PLEASE UNDERSTAND I LOVE YOU LEANNE. Written and performed by Wayde K.

  • SQUEEZE YOU, HUG YOU, KISS YOU, LOVE YOU
    SQUEEZE YOU, HUG YOU, KISS YOU, LOVE YOU This song was recorded at Mirror Sound Studio in Seattle, WA. by engineer Ken Fordyce. When Ken isn’t behind the controls, he sometimes plays guitar with the group CRIME SCENE who recorded their entire first CD entitled, “1ST OFFENSE” in his studio back in 2004-2005. This is one of only two songs that I wrote that I had someone else sing. I was quite capable of singing it, but Mark, who is actually the other main lead singer of this group, didn’t have enough songs on the album, so I gave him this one, which was really right up his alley since he’s a great country singer. The group consisted of Wayde Brown (me) on guitar, vocals, and percussion; Nick Wilcox on bass, vocals, and keyboards; Mark Hasbrook on acoustic guitar and vocals; Jay Munger on lead guitar and vocals; and Paul Kollman on drums and vocals.   This is the 29th song I wrote, so it was during my songwriting infancy. I was listening to a lot of rockabilly songs, and really getting into Buddy Holly and Phil Philips. So this song was born from those styles. Part of the lyrics came from a poem I had. SQUEEZE YOU HUG YOU KISS YOU LOVE YOU    I WANNA SQUEEZE YOU, HUG YOU, KISS YOU, AND LOVE YOU. MY LOVE FOR YOU HAS ALWAYS, ALWAYS BEEN TRUE, FOR I FOUND A LOVE THAT’S REAL, SO DON’T TELL ME HOW I FEEL. I WANNA SQUEEZE YOU, HUG YOU, KISS YOU, AND LOVE YOU.   EVEN THOUGH I DON’T WANT ANYTHING FROM YOU, I’M SO CONFUSED; I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO. I’M GONNA LIE IN MY BED AND CRY, TILL I KNOW THE REASONS WHY, I WANNA SQUEEZE YOU, HUG YOU, KISS YOU, AND LOVE YOU.   I WANT YOU NIGHT AND DAY.  I LOVE YOU ANYWAY. JUST TO SEE YOU SMILE MAKES MY LIFE SEEM WORTH WHILE. I WANT YOU SO BAD, AND IT MAKES ME WISH I HAD LOVED YOU WHEN I HAD THE CHANCE.      I’M GONNA WALK ON DOWN AND TALK WITH THAT MAN. HE STOLE MY GIRL AND TOOK HER BY THE HAND. HE SAID, “I WANT YOU FOR MY OWN, CAUSE YOUR HUSBAND’S NEVER HOME.” I’M GONNA SIT RIGHT DOWN AND CRY OVER YOU.   I’M GONNA SQUEEZE YOU, HUG YOU, KISS YOU, AND LOVE YOU. MY LOVE FOR YOU WILL EVER, EVER BE TRUE! CAUSE I FOUND A LOVE THAT’S REAL, SO DON’T TELL ME HOW I FEEL. I’M GONNA SQUEEZE YOU, HUG YOU, KISS YOU, AND LOVE YOU. Written and performed by Wayde K. Brown & The Santairs (Crime Scene) Copyright 2012—All Rights Reserved Recorded at Mirror Sound Studios in Shoreline, WA.

  • I'M ALL ALONE
    I'M ALL ALONE I remember when I wrote this song, my dad told me he thought this was one of the first “real” songs I had written. I took that compliment and ran with it. This song was heavily influenced by The Beatles and Elvis Presley. The music was a bit different and the first verses are a different progression than the last verses. Even the choruses were different. Upon first listening to it, many won’t distinguish these changes until they actually try to learn the chords to the song. Lyrically, it holds meaning for me as well. Even though they were written when I was 15 years old, I felt “all alone.” I knew I was “different” as far as music was concerned, and I had no one to share that with when I was younger. There was no outlet for me to go off and do things like they have nowadays. I wasn’t a rock god or anything. I didn’t have the ability to draw good pictures for comics or things of that nature, so I wrote poetry and songs. It was something I could do and it came naturally and felt good. The song itself wasn’t a real life thing where I felt a girl was leaving me, but was more of a metaphor of writing and performing songs with no one to share it with. I had a very old demo recording of it with just me and my dad, playing the guitar and bass respectively. The recording was awful and I couldn’t use any part of it, so I decided to record it at our studio with me doing all the parts once again. This is song #28. I’M ALL ALONE SAY THAT YOU’LL STAY CAUSE I LOVE YOU SO. YOU’RE EVERYTHING IS WHAT I NEED FOR ME TO LOVE YOU MORE. THE TIME HAS COME FOR YOU TO GO. I’VE SEEN A LOT OF WHAT YOU HAVE THAT YOU DON’T WANNA SHOW. WHY DO I TRY? I DON’T KNOW WHY. I’M ALL ALONE, AND I WANT YOU FOR MY OWN. LOVE ME AGAIN. I WILL BE TRUE. THERE IS NO REASON FOR THIS AGONY YOU’RE PUTTIN’ ME THROUGH. COME TO ME! STAY BY MY SIDE! I HAVE SO MUCH TO GIVE SO DON’T GO OFF AND TRY TO HIDE. I WANT YOU SO. PLEASE LOVE ME MORE! I’M ALL ALONE, AND I WANT YOU FOR MY OWN. AND I WANT YOU FOR MY OWN. YES I WANT YOU FOR MY OWN. Written and performed by Wayde K. Brown & The Santairs Copyright 2014—All Rights Reserved Recorded at The CELL BLOCK Studio in Auburn, WA.

  • I WANNA KNOW
    I WANNA KNOW This song was recorded at Audio Recording, Inc. in Seattle by legendary engineer, Kearney Barton (who recorded The Kingsmen "Jolly Green Giant" of "Louie, Louie" fame, The Sonics "Psycho", The Frantics "Werewolf", "Angel Of The Morning" by Merrilee Rush and many others.) It was an 8 track analog studio, recorded onto 1 inch reel tape. Wayde Brown (me) on vocals, guitar, and bass; Nick Wilcox on backing vocal; and Dan Penland on backing vocal and drums performed this song. We had two unfinished versions of this song, so I combined the two songs into one on the Audacity program. This song came from the same session where we recorded "(Why Do) You Torture Me", "All Hail the Chief", and "Steel Dawn." The ending of the song was actually performed from the previous beat right into the next odd beat without cutting, though it sounds like it was cut. That's how tight we were as a band, performing together for several years. To finish off this particular mix, I had to convert it from a cassette format (which was the only format I had this in) that was about 17 years old onto the Audacity program on my computer with a JVC TD-W254 Double Cassette Deck 3 motor Silent Mechanism. This is the 379th song I wrote. There's no big meaning to the words except that I wanted it to have 3-part harmony to it and sing some high notes when it came to the bridge, and that I did. As far as the ending goes, it was supposed to be another song I was working on but couldn't figure out what to put in it. Then this song came along and I shoved it in there, and, oddly enough, it worked. I WANNA KNOW I WANNA KNOW. I WANNA KNOW. I WANNA KNOW WHY YOU LEFT, I WANNA KNOW WHY YOU LEFT ME ALL ALONE. I WANNA KNOW, KNOW, KNOW WHY I'M ON MY OWN, ALL ALONE. I WANNA SEE. I WANNA SEE. I WANNA SEE WHERE YOU ARE, CAN'T YOU SEE WHAT YOU'RE DOING TO ME? I WANNA SEE, SEE, SEE IF WE'RE MEANT TO BE, IF YOU'RE MEANT FOR ME IN REALITY. OH, I FEEL LIKE I'VE BEEN TO HEAVEN, BUT WHEN I NEEDED YOU HERE, YOU WALKED AWAY. I FEEL LIKE I'VE BEEN TO THE END OF THE WORLD TODAY. WHAT CAN I SAY? (SOLO) I WANNA KNOW, I WANNA KNOW. I WANNA KNOW WHY YOU LEFT. I WANNA KNOW WHY YOU HAD TO GO. I WANNA KNOW, KNOW, KNOW WHY I'M ON MY OWN, ALL ALONE. (SOLO) Written and performed by Wayde K. Brown & The Santairs (Mine) Copyright 2010/2012—All Rights Reserved Recorded at Audio Recording, Inc. in Seattle, WA.
