Wayne was born in Kingston, Jamaica and migrated to the country to live with his father in Trelawny where he attended William Knibb Memorial High School. Upon completion of high school in 1990 he returned to Kingston to complete college at Excelsior College. The Gospel Artist lived in the deep inner-city community of Eastern Kingston (Mountain View) and existed amidst the harsh culture of the Kingston ghetto. Stoddart was able to sustain his identity as a Son of the Most High God. The experiences of his environment has lead to lyrics of comfort, encouragement and solution for an exit from the hands of the enemy of humanity - the devil - for the oppressed and depressed seeking a way out or rather up. The title track COMMITTED on Stoddart’s second album is a prime example of the root of Wayne Stoddart's message.
Wayne grew up in the church and growing up in the country (Kinloss, Trelawny) there wasn't that much activity and entertainment besides what was found at the church. His interest in music, grew from the fact that his father had a wide collection of music from Gospel to R&B and Reggae; also there was always music in the church.
The first public recognition Stoddart received was at a concert at Clarks Town Primary School. "I was in grade 4 at the time and I just started singing a pop song and doing all the dance moves. The class went wild."
As a result of that primary school experience, Wayne and his brother Steve started singing together as the Stoddart Brothers.
Everywhere Wayne went music followed and 'vice versa'. Wayne was a local High School singing star at William Knibb High School and when he went to college he formed the all male quartet Dunamis and the results were the same (the Class of 94' Excelsior College).
Stoddart worshipped at the Mountain View New Testament Church of God where he was the Musical Director. Wayne formed the Gospel group Dynamis from the local members of the church and produced the album 'Fulfillment' as a church project.
In March 1996 the group was nominated Best Performing Gospel Band at the Jamaica Music Awards (JAMI) for the 'Fulfillment' Project. Wayne has shared stage with artist such and Shirley Caesar, Rev F. C. Barnes and Sis. Judy Mowatt (former member of Bob Marley’s I-Three) to name a few. Wayne Stoddart’s album COMMITTED was nominated Best New Reggae Gospel album for the New York Caribbean Gospel Awards (NYCGA) 2002. In 2003 Stoddart won the award for the most Distinguish Male Vocal and was recognized by the Merlin Gospel Awards.
Stoddart has recently migrated to Florida. He now worships at the Hands of Life Worship Center where he is the Music and Youth Director. Wayne continues to feed the children with bread of life as he assists with Bible Study Teaching with his church family.
Wayne continues to expand in his ministry healing the wounded, comforting the brokenhearted, setting the captive free and tearing down the strongholds of the enemy through the power of the Most High God.
