WAYNE JACOBS is an award-winning professional singer songwriter. While a teenager in the 1980s, Wayne went to night school for three and a half years where he was taught by a folk singer called Pauline. He wrote a couple of songs, one for his mum and another called One Way Ticket. Pauline said Wayne had good potential as a songwriter. While his children grew up, Wayne put his guitar away. But, over the last ten years, he's been playing and writing again. For his 40th birthday, Wayne's wife Joanna gave him his first Fender Squire electric guitar.
Wayne has been happily married for 27 years. His daughter Gemma, 26, and son Jamie, 27, are both civil servants.
Wayne has had some great success with his songwriting. He has written songs for the 2012 London Olympics and one to celebrate Big Ben's 150th birthday. This led to a tour of the famous clock tower where Wayne walked up 334 steps to the top and sang his song to MP's, tour guides, tourists and clock makers. He has also written Christmas carols for the Tower Of London which were sung by a choir.
