A three-piece Americana/Country band from the south coast of England, Winters Hill formed in 2012 and have only gone from strength to strength. As lifelong friends who share a passion for music, the band formed after watching a local festival, an inspiring moment that spurred the band to set an ambitious goal - in one year they would be playing the very same festival.
Fast-forward three years and Winters Hill has grown way beyond what was expected. With Jack Holmàr on lead guitar, harmonica and steel slide, Max Hoar on rhythmn guitar and lead vocals, and Nimrod Taabu on percussion, the band have crafted a distinguished alternative to the traditional Americana sound. Before ever playing in front of a single person, interest had begun from local radio as the band crafted their unique sound in Jacks' loft. The trio played an acoustic session on Voice FM as their first ever live performance, and popularity has been rapidly growing ever since.
Combining elements of folk, blues, country and tradition rock, Winters Hill have a certain nostalgia and romance to their music. With catchy choruses wrapped in melodic guitar riffs, the band have taken the influence of a vast range of musicians and blended them withwith their own passionate craft. Within the first year of Winters Hill forming, they were playing at the London 02 arena for Country 2 Country, a spot well deserved by the boys.
A testament to their sound and what they have achieved, their new single is a certified anthem. Inspired by the Steve McQueen movie, ‘The War Lover’, the new track is a guitar playing, harmonica blowing, banjo plucking, drum bashing, song that is set to catapult the band onto the international stage.
