SILENCE THE MESSENGER Signs With Standby Records

When thinking of music that comes from Texas, most would think of any number of country artists, or the almighty Pantera. It’s time to think outside the box and make way for SILENCE THE MESSENGER and their brand of heavy music.

Heavily influenced by anything that’s fast and heavy, their sound is derived from a mixture of old and new metal such as Slipknot, Behemoth, Whitechapel, and anything in between. To expect anything less than an aggressive, violent, and pissed off creation would be completely asinine.

With a handful of tours, and a solid EP from 2010 entitled “Buried” under their belts, the band is ready to step it up and release their next album. SILENCE THE MESSENGER have proudly signed with Standby Records and are recording their debut album at Studio D in Cleveland, Ohio with Landon Tewers of the immensely popular band, The Plot In You.

“We’re not here to reinvent the wheel, we’re here to play pissed off, heavy music that we love for as many people as we can, and have a great fucking time doing it.” states frontman, Steve Tinnon. Be on the lookout for these guys to devastate your town, and drink all of your beer in the very near future.

GuitarWorld Premieres New Winslow Music Video

The song, “Alone Tonight,” is from the band’s new album, Left of the Right Direction, which will be released March 26 via Little Fish Records and RCR Recording Studios.

The six-piece teamed up producer Edwin “Tony” Nicholas (Barry White, Mary J Blige, Gerald Levert) and engineer Nick Chahwala (Katy Perry, Mariah Carey, Gym Class Heroes) to produce the new album.

“We have grown a lot since our first album,” says vocalist Maurice Martin. “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.”

Winslow is Maurice Martin (vocals), Matt Tieman (saxophone), Curtis Tate (keyboard), Charlie Trenta (guitar), Danny Kolliner (bass) and Jesse Marquardt (drums).

The song in the video — “Alone Tonight” — is available now from iTunes at this location.

Cleveland’s heralded soul/rock band Winslow, is set to release their much anticipated sophomore album Left of the Right Direction on March 26th via Little Fish Records and RCR Recording Studios. The 6-piece teamed up with Grammy-Award Winning Producer Edwin “Tony” Nicholas (Barry White, Mary J Blige, Gerald Levert) and Grammy-Nominated engineer Nick Chahwala (Katy Perry, Mariah Carey, Gym Class Heroes) to produce the new album.

Winslow’s unique blend of soul, funk, rock and jazz has been described as a musical breath of fresh air. This sound, combined with the group’s polished and passionate live show has led them to sharing the stage with such major acts as Incubus, Earth Wind & Fire, OAR, Robert Randolph, Keane, Lupe Fiasco, Rusted Root, and many more.

Maurice Martin, vocalist for Winslow, explains how the band’s four years of growth and changes has led them to creating Left of the Right Direction. “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.”

Winslow is Maurice Martin (vocals), Matt Tieman (saxophone), Curtis Tate (keyboard), Charlie Trenta (guitar), Danny Kolliner (bass), and Jesse Marquardt (drums). Each member of the band has a background studying diverse styles of music and it comes through in the music. Subsequently, all of Winslow’s tracks can be heard as their own individual vignettes, highlighting one distinct part of the group’s musical background. Martin’s hooks and signature vocal style serve as the bond that ties the songs together and make the album cohesive.

Winslow will release Left of the Right Direction on March 26th. Please head to http://www.winslowsoul.com for more updates.
