Us Commoners is the music concept of Kingston singer-songwriter/producer, Wayne Nuessle. Having recorded and produced several independent music projects for other artists, Nuessle brought together a team of music industry veterans to jump start his own project, which he started in 2013. He recruited producer/engineer/multi-instrumentalist Jean-Christophe Santalis (platinum record recipient for American Authors’ “Best Day of My Life”) along with keyboardist Clifford Carter (James Taylor, Natalie Cole, Paul Simon) and guitarist Eli Menezes (Lauryn Hill, Trey Songz, Ayo). To round off the group, he brought on fellow Kingston vocalist Bernadette Marnell-Palumbo, who has sung backup for Chip Taylor (wrote “Wild Thing” and “Angel of the Morning”), Guy Davis and Stephen Nichols among other bigger artists. Now with the band complete, Nuessle unveils the band’s first product, “The Hot Spot,” the first of several tracks coming your way this year. FEEL IT HERE
