Winter Andrews is a Los Angeles-based indie folk, indie rock, and indie pop singer-songwriter and actor.
He was born in Hawaii, but grew up "in the middle of the fucking desert" (Tucson, Arizona) with a blind older sister and an intense upbringing. He found solace in the emotional hurricane of his youth through music and cinema. The songs of Jeff Buckley, Bon Iver, and Green Day eased his heart, while the transformative, character-driven performances of Heath Ledger, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Gary Oldman let his mind escape to worlds unknown. He would soon find he, too, had a voice that made people listen, and his own talents for transformation.
Musically, Winter combines the lyricism of Damien Rice and Phoebe Bridgers with vocal prowess reminiscent of Hozier and Matt Corby. His fingerpicked guitar lines, equal parts haunting and mesmerizing, create a beautiful bed for his ethereal melodies and unforgettable voice to reach your soul. Bouncing effortlessly between lush, cinematic folk ballads, full-throated, irreverent punk-inspired anthems, and delicate, sparse confessionals, Winter is a magnetic force in the making - one you can't get out of your head, and one you won't want to, anyway.
His first musical release, "Mystery of Her," was the title track to a feature film that he also starred in, airing internationally on Netflix. It was Winter's feature film debut, and while on set, his dad bet him he 'couldn't get a song in the movie.' Winter won the bet.
Beyond his musical and on-screen pursuits, Winter has also produced and starred in critically acclaimed, award-winning theatrical productions in Los Angeles. In one of these productions, all ticket proceeds benefited Everytown For Gun Safety, raising over $10,000 for the cause.
