John Waite got his start as the lead singer of The Baby’s whose hits include Isn’t It Time? and Every Time I Think of You. After five albums with The Baby’s, Waite released his first solo album, Ignition, which boasted the hit rock single Change, which was soon followed with a #1 and what is undeniably one of the all-time greatest pop/rock ballads, Missing You. The song topped the international charts and today remains a radio staple around the globe. In 2017, Waite released Wooden Heart, Vol. 2 (Acoustic Anthology).
