Looking for a No. 01 Single? Ocean Studios Ireland is your answer and Wayne P. Sheehy is your guy…
….and this is why!
Wayne grew up in a draughty old hotel situated on the shores of the North Atlantic Ocean in West Cork Ireland, in a time when he had to travel 20k to buy a music magazine and 100k to buy an album of any relevance and inspiration. Music was Traditional Singing or “Country and Irish” and the local dance hall was moving but only slowly with the times.Wayne once hitchhiked to Birmingham in England (catching a ferry) with a pal to watch Roxy Music, such was the rarity of touring acts in the southwest. However his passion for music ignited his school pals and before too long a residency was started with a ramshackle bunch of Irish men both on and off the stage. His passion for making music and playing his drums was finally airborne! Wayne’s story is littered with some of the most pivotal shapers, movers and shakers of music as we know it today.He toured and recorded and occasionally still plays with Rolling Stone Ron Wood, consequently throughout his touring career with Ronnie he has accompanied many “legends ” of rock and roll” including Van Morrison,Rod Stewart,Ronnie lane, Aretha Franklin, Bobby Womack and our very own Damien Dempsey to name a few. He has also recorded with amongst others Bo Diddley,Bono, Greg Cohen(Tom Waits), The Chieftans, The Edge, Peter Gabriel,Hothouse Flowers,Carl Carlton,toured and performed with Robert Palmer,Eric Burdon, Moya Brennan (Clannad),Michelle Shocked, the list goes on and so does Wayne. Although Wayne has always loved being a player, as time progressed he found himself intervening in the sessions more and more and came to realise his destiny was to be a producer!
