RealTracks Artist Bio: Wayne Killius

Wayne Killius showed early promise as a drummer and percussionist at Liverpool High School in Syracuse, NY (where he has since been inducted into the Fine Arts Hall of Fame) before moving on to attend the Eastman School of Music. On graduation his career took him to Nashville where he is now a top studio drummer, percussionist, and producer.

As a first-call drummer, Wayne has performed and recorded with major artists including Big & Rich, Neal McCoy, Guy Clark, Lonestar, Michelle Wright, Toby Keith, Kenny Rogers, and many more. His complete discography runs to more than 100 releases, with drumming credits on such major hits as Horse of a Different Color and Comin' to Your City by Big & Rich.

A versatile musician, Wayne is in demand for demos, jingles, and custom record projects, even including drums and percussion for a Rock treatment of the Mother Goose nursery rhymes titled Rockin' With the Goose. Up-and-coming artists like Candace Asher and Abbie Gardiner have acknowledged his support and mentorship.
