Wayne’s talent and dedication to the craft have not gone unnoticed, with a four-star rating out of five from All Music Guide, the biggest music critic, who praised Wayne saying:

“Wayne Baker Brooks may have been born into Chicago blues royalty, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t paid his dues along the way. Brooks is a strong, soulful singer; he’s got a big, meaty Gibson tone with a fully formed new vision that updates the sound of the blues without falling into the same tired blues-rock clichés. Instead, Brooks adds some soul, funk, and even a little hip-hop to his solid blues foundation and comes up with a great set of all-original tunes. 4 Stars. ★★★★ ” –ALL MUISC GUIDE
