Texas pop tart Winslow Bright provides a glimpse into what the '60's girl group phenomenon might have sounded like had it been born out of the Lone Star State. With a disarmingly sweet coo and knack for vintage arrangements and timeless contemporary pop music, Bright's honey-coated country twang imbues her music with a sense of lovely heartbreak that elevates each song beyond the conventional pop template. "Could You Be My Baby," with its meticulously reverb-laden tambourine hits and bittersweet guitar chords, harkens back to the more innocent days of pop radio, something that could have been conceived forty years ago but not nearly as well executed without Bright's expressive capacities. - urb.com/NEXT1000

Bio

Winslow began writing with Dallas indie producer/singer/songwriter Salim Nourallah when she was fifteen years old. She had just spent 8 months in Los Angeles auditioning for TV and film and was ready to return to regular high school life, but wanted to pursue writing and recording. Ultimately, Bright’s debut album, Lovable, was produced with Nourallah, with seven new tracks co-written by Winslow and Salim. Several of Dallas’ best musicians were called in to add their musical spin to the album’s eleven tracks, including John Lefler (Dashboard Confessiona), Daniel Hopkins (Radiant*), Rip Rowan (who also mixed the album), and the late Carter Albrecht (Edie Brickell and The New Bohemians) to name a few.

According to Nourallah, “She has the rare gift of being able to channel the emotion of the song. I presented her with the difficult challenge of singing many songs [with] different vocal approaches . . . challenging to someone with twice her life’s experience.”

Winslow has also worked with songwriters in L.A. to add to her publishing catalogue (Heavy Hitters, ASCAP), and has performed at Genghis Cohen, L.A., The Door, Dallas, and will debut her new album, Lovable at The Granada Theater, Saturday, January 23rd, 2009.

Winslow is a fan of The Kings of Leon, John Mayer, and Justin Timberlake. If stranded on a desert island, she would also hope to have Sam Cooke’s Greatest Hits and The Beach Boy’s Pet Sounds loaded on her i-pod.
