Alvis Wayne • Rockabilly Daddy

Alvis Wayne (December 31, 1937 – July 31, 2013) was an American rockabilly singer.
Alvis Wayne Samford was born in Paducah, Texas and listened to country music on the radio as a child and was given a guitar at age ten. He began playing in local bars and clubs at 12 and joined Tony Wayne & the Rhythm Wranglers at 20. This group released one single in 1957 and then disbanded. Following this, Alvis signed with Westport Records.

He recorded enough for Westport to put out an LP; though none were released, his single "Don't Mean Maybe Baby" was a regional hit in Texas, and he toured extensively in the state. He put his career in music on hold and joined the Air Force in 1960; after his tour of duty, he continued recording and performing.

In subsequent decades, Alvis became the subject of a cult following in the United Kingdom, where his singles were in great demand. In 2000, Wayne signed with Rolling Rock Records and released two full-length albums, Rockabilly Daddy (2000) and Proud of My Rockabilly (2001).


Alvis Wayne (31 de diciembre de 1937 - 31 de julio de 2013) fue un cantante de rockabilly americano.
Alvis Wayne Samford nació en Paducah, Texas y escuchó música country en la radio cuando era niño y le regalaron una guitarra a los diez años. Comenzó a tocar en bares y clubes locales a los 12 años y se unió a Tony Wayne & the Rhythm Wranglers a los 20. Este grupo lanzó un single en 1957 y luego se disolvió. Después de esto, Alvis firmó con Westport Records.

Grabó lo suficiente para que Westport sacara un LP; aunque no salió ninguno, su single "Don't Mean Maybe Baby" fue un éxito regional en Texas, y realizó numerosas giras por el estado. Dejó su carrera musical en suspenso y se unió a la Fuerza Aérea en 1960; después de su gira, continuó grabando y actuando.

En las décadas siguientes, Alvis se convirtió en objeto de un culto en el Reino Unido, donde sus singles eran muy solicitados. En 2000, Wayne firmó con Rolling Rock Records y publicó dos álbumes completos, Rockabilly Daddy (2000) y Proud of My Rockabilly (2001).
