Wayne Wonder

Von Wayne Charles, July 26 1972 Buff Bay, Jamaica

As a child, Wonder sang in Sunday school in Buff Bay, Portland, Jamaica. At the age of 13, Wayne began writing songs at Camperdown High School in eastern Kingston. His career took a major turn when he was hired as a regular contributor at Metro Media in Allman Town. In an audition at Sonic Sounds studio, Wonder impressed Sly Dunbar, but his touring commitments with Black Uhuru prevented him from signing him. His first single, “Long and Lasting Love”, was produced by King Tubby in 1985, and two more followed. Wonder lost his career when Tubby died in 1988, and he moved on to record for several other record producers at Sonic Sound, having a further hit with “It’s Over Now”, which led to the release of his first album, One More Chance, even though his success during this era was limited. etc
