Bursting through generation barriers and worn out trends, Winslow’s music is timeless. Out of Cleveland’s hard rock/metal dominated music scene, Winslow’s award winning sound has gained the band praise, loyal growing fan base, and the reputation of one of the Midwest’s rising musical acts.
Winslow’s unique blend of soul, funk, rock and jazz has been described by many members of the press and fans alike as a musical breath of fresh air. This sound, combined with the 6-piece outfit’s polished and passionate stage show has led them to sharing the stage with such major acts as Incubus, Earth Wind & Fire, OAR, Robert Randolph, Keane, Mat Kearney, Rusted Root, and many more.
Winslow’s heavily awaited sophomore album is the culmination of 4 years of growth and changes. With 3 new members and a new recording contract with Little Fish Records, Winslow has brought in the assistance of Grammy Award Winning producer Edwin “Tony” Nicholas(Gerald Levert, Barry White, Mary J Blige) and Grammy Nominated engineer Nick Chahwala(Katy Perry, Mariah Carey, Gym Class Heroes). The band also brought in Cleveland reggae legend Carlos Jones for a guest spot on their single, “Nothin’s Easy”.
“We have grown a lot since our first album. I feel like our songwriting really has come a long way. We aren’t trying to fit into a mold of a certain genre or style. Our real goal was to create an album that we could be proud of. Call it pop. Call it soul. As long as people listen, they can call it what they will.”
