A cure for the hurried pace of the time is a pretty easy fix for Anthony Wayne as he splits himself in half on “It is What It is”. The songman scatters chord strums to fill “Twenty Pews”, uses the guitar to define the rhythms leading into “Sort of Evening”, and snaps an image of an ‘empty pack of Marlboros’ to show-and-tell the isolation of “Spend Our Days”. The songs are from Bury Who We Are, the recent release from Anthony Wayne, the Earth by Train frontman taking a step into a solo effort with the album. Bury Who We Are stretches out the words and music on the recording, the moods and melodies tumbling together to the blood flowing into the emotions of the tales.
The songs on of Bury Who We Are use personal experience as inspiration for hurdles, happiness, and pitfalls of life as Anthon Wayne tumbles into memories to finetune his filter for friends in “Messages Meant for Me”, second guesses a second chance for “All Away”, and chips at indecision with pounding percussion in “Unravel My Soul”. An enthusiasm for carrying the message is a key ingredient for the encouragement in the words. Not set on any defined agenda, Anthon Wayne believes in the magic of the moment, seeing the performance experience as ‘the spontaneity keeps it loose. I love the idea of unifying an audience and giving them something to believe in. I want people to leave thinking they can take on a mountain and win’. A thick bassline sets the goals for “One to Prove” while Anthony Wayne hushes the soundtracking confessional promises of “I Will Rise”.
