Winston Audio was an indie rock and grunge rock band based in Atlanta, Georgia, that formed in 2001 and has existed in several incarnations since its creation. The band is currently signed to Favorite Gentlemen Recordings and is on an indefinite hiatus.[1][2]

History[edit]

According to the band, Winston Audio "was formed in 2001, but the music they create today really began in 2006."[3] In 2006, the band released its first EP, Come On, Hibernate, but the band remained largely silent until 2009, when they released The Red Rhythm.[4] With the release of its first full-length album, Winston Audio has received generally favorable reviews, citing the band's unmistakable influences from 90's grunge rock.[5][6] Winston Audio's sound has been described as hard rock with Southern rock and blues undertones.[7][8]
