Wayne Pascall Acappella

I am an artist who produces gospel music in the style of contemporary acappella under the artist name "Wayne Pascall Acappella." In short, I am a ONE MAN HUMAN ORCHESTRA, using my voice and mouth to produce all the music heard. In addition to singing harmonies, in many songs I would use the human anatomy to produce percussion sounds such as mouth percussions, clapping and finger-snapping. These body and vocal percussions also conveniently serve as my metronome by which I keep timing as I add various vocal parts.

My earliest memories of my musical abilities begin with my fascination and unusual skill at playing the harmonica from age 7. I first developed a love for harmony from hearing one of my elementary school teachers sing during our morning devotions. Her voice was a crystal clear soprano that sometimes improvised into blending alto notes. This schoolteacher's ringing harmonious voice inspired my young heart to want to sing harmony. These influences together with my involvement in the church choir from age 14, fueled my deep appreciation for Christian music. As a young teenager, I sang tenor in the church choir. When my voice changed, I switched to a bass singer. I have sung bass for several acappella groups including "Gospel Harmony", "Inspiration", and Voice". I have also sung bass for several recording and singing projects.

Though I have been writing and producing my own songs since 1986, I began publishing my music on The Internet as a solo artist in 2001. I have a background in singing, ministry, leading the church choir and teaching music theory. My inspiration comes from The Holy Bible, life's experiences, my ideas and just a passion for music. I also get musical inspiration from a combination of artists, both secular and religious. I learn from listening to everyone, from the early classical creations of Strauss and Beethoven to our modern music. The secular artists who have influenced my music include Bob Marley, The Beatles, Louis Armstrong, Michael Jackson, The Mighty Sparrow (For Calypso), and good Pop music form the 80's. Religious artists who have influenced my music include: Take 6, Acappella, Fairfiled Four, Kirk Franklin. My mother has been a significant inspiration to me, who always had a song in her heart and lips.

In short, though my influences for singing acappella came from artists like Bobby McFerrin, Rockapella, The Nylons, Acappella, Fairfield Four and Take 6 just to name a few, I have developed my own style through the years. While some of my songs are composed straight from God's Word, others are adaptations of popular inspirational and secular songs. While providing some elements of entertainment, the main purpose of my music is to minister unto others in the form of artistic expression while bringing glory to Almighty God.
