"Honest and refreshing"

Last summer I was given the task of creating an album cover for a local folk band called Winters Hill and thier EP 'someone in texas loves me'. After listening to thier music and meeting with the guys it was clear that they were a very organic band; They were freinds growing up, they appreciated the same music and the concept of putting the band together was to play at a local festival... to me thier story is very honest and refreshing.

"Amazed at how talented they are!"

Hey Max. Here you go:

‘Winters Hill have done a couple of sessions on my radio show and I continue to be amazed at how talented they are. It really has been a pleasure to sit just a couple of feet away and watch them impress on every possible level. These three guys have developed a unique style and sound which my listeners continue to love. The combination of their vocals and picking ability, and not forgetting Nimrod’s excellent work on the Cajon, gives them a bigger sound than the three of them suggests. Although they’ve just started out, I predict amazing things for Winters Hill.’
