The Wayward

Listen to their song 'Jokers and Wine'

The Wayward in Eamon Doran's"Well a young man ain't got nothing in the world these days". Twelve words. If ever the very existence of The Wayward is to be explained, or justified, then the lyrics of Mose Allison's classic 'Young Man Blues' need only be repeated. The Wayward formed in 1998, with the original line-up changing significantly within a matter of months to form the current Who / Rory Gallagher / Verve inspired combination which drags itself from rehearsal to rehearsal and gig after gig on a regular basis. Inspiration from and admiration for artists, ranges not only from those mentioned above but also includes such diverse figures as the Small Faces, The Sex Pistols, Stone Roses and Led Zeppelin amongst others.

The Wayward are:
Stephen Kelch - Voice
Mark Deasy - Guitars, Effects
Ciaran Burke - Rhythm Guitars
Stephen Deasy - Bass
Adam Deering - Drums
