The best kept secret in music


"Quote from Tony Levin"

I recorded and toured with Quebec singer Kevin Parent last fall - that was a lot of fun. I did sessions with Willie Otieri, Holly Figueroa, Willy Porter, Lynda Thalie, Mitch Winston... oh yes, David Bowie used me on a track. Gee, now that I start listing it, I guess I have been pretty busy. - Music Street Journal

"Quote from Greg Calibi"

"I can't wait for these songs to be heard. I expect very good things. I am really excited to find out how people react to Mitch.... " - Verbal

"Mitch and Bob Dylan"

.... In fact, Mitch, whose music can be heard at, sounds a lot like Dylan, except Dylan never consummated land deals like Mitch... - Prudential Real Estate Newsletter

"Quote from Producer Jim Sampas"

.... Mitch is a fantastic person and singer/songwriter. I can't wait to see him succeed.... - Verbal

Feeling a bit camera shy


Mitch Winston has lived an examined and adventurous life. He is known throughout various circles for his experiences as an artist, a businessman, and a leader. He has seriously pursued various eclectic ventures, such as rabbinical school, professional boxing promotion, real estate development, hosting a radio show, and running a successful record label/talent management company.

Mitch is now focusing a great deal of his efforts into writing and playing his own music. Since making this decision over the summer, Mitch Winston has opened up for music legends Marshall Crenshaw, Blue Oyster Cult, Richie Havens, Chad Burdick, and Jeff Healy. He has also recorded with guitar legend Vernon Reid (Living Color), bass virtuoso Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel, King Crimson), guitarist Dave Brown (Paul Simon), and drummer Dave Mattacks (Paul McCartney).

Winston recently returned from his Delusions of Grandeur Tour throughout Canada, where he was featured at the Hard Rock Cafe in Toronto, many other prestigious venues, and most major Canadian radio stations.

Mitch Winston recently finished his album, Civilized Hyenas, and it will be released later this summer. This album was recorded at West 80 Studios in New York City. It was produced and engineered by Jon Tomlinson.

In addition to his music, Mitch Winston is the founder of the Wave of Peace Foundation, Inc., a fully accredited 501(c)3 charitable foundation formed in 2001 that brings people together and raises funds for causes that have touched Mitch's heart. The charity is currently focusing 100% of its efforts towards finding creative ways to help combat terrorism and assist the innocent victims left in its wake.
