Mayon Weeks is a native of eastern North Carolina. He started
his love affair with music in the sixth grade, playing trumpet in the school band.
He continued playing in bands into his early years at Mars Hill College. It was there that he was introduced to
live theatre in which he has continued to direct and perform.
In the early 60's as the folk/ rock scene gained speed, Mayon hocked his trumpet for a guitar.
He taught himself to play, began singing, and soon stumbled into songwriting. He has been writing and performing since.
His songs have been performed and recorded by professional artists. A stage production featuring his original
songs was created and twice produced by the Cape Fear Regional Theatre, playing to sold out houses.
He has produced several CD's of his songs, the latest of which, "CHASING DREAMS" can be purchased DIRECT by clicking

writes in a range of musical genres including folk, pop, swing, blues, cabaret, jazz and country.
Mayon and his wife Mackie are life long residents of Fayetteville, NC.
