John Waite is an extraordinary vocalist, songwriter and frontman in his own right, as well as with mega pop band The Babys and rock supergroup Bad English. Waite currently prefers to balance his life between singing on stage, composing and recording honest, heartfelt solo albums. He has written and recorded several songs for Hollywood movies. For kicks (and perhaps honor as a diehard Beatles fan), he even enjoyed a brief stint on a recent Ringo Starr concert tour. John Waite has plenty to offer on his new album, The Hard Way. Beyond the addictive title cut lie some terrific pop/rock tunes.
