About Winter


Meet my partner in crime, accomplice of dastardly deeds, longtime collaborator of awesome, man behind the curtain, and manager of mischief.

This is Winter. He makes all my songs better. He fleshes out my ideas, adds beautiful arrangements, and co-produces all of our music. He is a fantastic guitar player and recording engineer. Not to mention a wonderful travel companion. It wouldn’t be right to have an About page that didn’t include stuff about Winter.

So here’s some stuff about Winter.

Winter is from Kassel, Germany. He was first going to be a drummer, but then, when he was 12, he heard a boy in his building play Smoke on the Water on guitar, and, as they say, the rest is history.

Winter has produced and performed on numerous albums, and is the senior sound engineer at EMB Studios.

Some career highlights include playing guitar for Blondie’s current album, Ghosts of Download (2014) and recording drums for Paul Bostaph (Slayer, Testament). He has also worked with Dwayne Wiggins (Toni Tony Tone), Darius Rucker (Hootie & the Blowfish), Bill Ortiz (Santana), Sonja Drakulich (Stellamara), Amelia Hogan, and Jessica Star, among  many others.

Winter has also worked on over 35 films, as both location sound mixer and sound editor.

He is known for his dubious jokes, silly hats, and piratical demeanor, and is beloved of cats across the land.
