First, we are elated to announce that award-winning vocalist and composer Nacre has signed with Wayfarer as a recording artist. Nacre's angelic voice has been heard on radio worldwide and her sense of capturing raw emotion through non-lyrical music is awe-inspiring inspiring for anyone who hears her. Nacre has been actively collaborating with other Wayfarer artists and you'll be hearing a lot from her in the future including a brand-new solo album due out in 2024.

Our next artist has been one of the most well-known names in ambient music for decades. Brannan Lane is a multi-award-winning composer, multi-instrumentalist, and the consummate collaborator. His extensive catalog of music crosses multiple genres and is a constant mainstay on radio across the globe. Brannan's music has been heard on numerous television networks as well as popular video games for Sony PlayStation. We are ecstatic to have such an iconic artist join the Wayfarer family.

It is difficult to describe our next new artist in just a few words. Keith Medley is arguably one of the most talented guitarists, composers, and inventors alive today. The video for his single "Ancestors" featuring his self-built 27-string harp guitar has been viewed over one million times garnering Keith a cult following among countless musicians worldwide. Keith embodies the concept of innovative sonic artistry, and we are honored to welcome him aboard as part of the first wave of new Wayfarer artists.

Rounding out the Wayfarer family of artists is Grammy Award-Winning artist, musician, composer, and producer Richard Theisen. Theisen's body of work in the new age market has garnered him extensive praise from critics and fans alike including being awarded the Best Album of the Year Award for his album "Elysium" from New Age Music Planet. His music is constantly being featured on multiple radio shows and podcasts worldwide. Richard will be one of the first of the new Wayfarer artists to release new music for 2024.

I decided to compose the 'soundtrack' to this dream.” The Perfect Fallacy was mixed and mastered at Transient Sound by Tyler Rice. Artwork and design was handled by Hajo Müller.
