Early Tom Waits meets late Joe Henry while waiting for Leonard Cohen to show.

  "When I say this new album from WAYNE GILLESPIE & FAMOUS BLUE RAINCOAT is all over the place I mean it as a total compliment, such is the diversity of songs, styles and sounds on it. That's why they call it FRAZZ - think Folk, Rock and Jazz. . . it's FRAZZ!   I love it and hope you find time to spend some time with it and embrace the songs here as I have."  Stuart Coupe 

"I’m loving this set of songs, such cool playing and Wayne’s voice is perfectly tuned to the lyrics, he is  such a unique artist” Rose Bygrave (Goanna)

"I love this song Brick By Brick Wayne.. the fucked-up sax and the Wah Wah and the brilliant lyrics that paint the picture so fluidly.. it’s going straight to a playlist!"Mel Forbes ( Swamp Daisies)

Kiwi Born Sydney resident, Singer-songwriter Wayne Gillespie released his 6th album FRAZZ with band Famous Blue Raincoat on 24 June 2022.

Gillespie cut his teeth playing London Folk Clubs and Busking in Paris Metros, making the finals of the NZ Music awards in 1984 & 1988 before relocating to Sydney. Gillespie has performed with the likes of Suzanne Vega, Chris Whitley, Stan Ridgeway, Ed Keupper, and Dave Dobbyn.

These songs are a written collaboration with Drummer/Engineer Rob Grosser who has worked with musicians such as; Jimmy Barnes, Bob Daisley, Jon Lord and Steve Morse.
