RIP Wayne McGhie!

We’re crushed to say that Wayne McGhie (1947-2017) passed away yesterday afternoon at his home in Toronto with his sister Merline by his side. Wayne made music that touched all of us here at Light In The Attic and we’re eternally grateful to have met the man. Sitting down with Wayne, Merline, Kevin James Howes, and Jay Douglas in 2003 was a moment that we’ll never forget. Due to his health, Wayne couldn’t say much but was smiling with tears rolling down his face as Sipreano spun 45s of Wayne’s music on his portable player and Merline’s incredible Jamaican food flowed from the kitchen. That one trip inspired so much. Wayne, we’ll miss you!

Our friend and the mastermind behind our re-release of Wayne’s album and the entire Jamaica to Toronto series Kevin ‘Sipreano’ Howes wrote an incredibly touching piece on Wayne that can be found here: https://voluntaryinnature.blogspot.ca/…/wayne-mcghie-1947-2…
