We are excited to announce that Jacob Vanko has signed a sync-rep agreement with Winding Way Records. Growing up in a blue-collar town with a musical family, Vanko was surrounded by creativity and he’s been playing guitar and writing songs ever since he was a kid. Drawing inspiration from Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and John Prine, Vanko came into his own as a songwriter in his 20’s.
Not only did he open for Dwight Yoakam, Bob Lewis, Sister Hazle, and the Mallett Brothers Band, but he performed at the Winter Blues and Jazz Festival, The Neptune Festival, and even headlined at The Big Bluesy Festival.
Vanko is not one to beat around the bush; writing about life’s up and downs, challenges and accomplishments, he is able to connect with his listeners. His music is a combination of traditional blues, folk, country, and bluegrass mixed with grunge and rock. Vanko has a unique sound that is able to attract a large crowd with an even mix of soulful Americana and powerful Rock & Roll.
We are excited to announce that Bonne Finken has signed a sync-rep agreement with Winding Way Records. Finken is an award-winning artist whose music has made it to the top 40 charts, and received nominations for ‘Album of the Year’ by Indie Music Digest.
In addition to her success in rock and pop , Bonne received an Emmy® for her original song and score for the documentary “FarmHer”, and has had work featured on various TV shows and commercials (MTV’s The Real World & E!’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians).
Bonne is a kick-ass artist in our opinion and some of our favorite tracks are Possibly Impossible and Step Back Baby. Take a listen and please give her a follow here and anywhere you listen to music.
Bonne’s current work melds her rock background with pop sensibilities, and with the help of producer Matt Sepanic (Stone Sour; Slipknot) she creates some of the most accessible rock since Joan Jett.
Winding Way records has added Rae Travers, a London-based Folk singer-songwriter in a Sync-Rep deal. Her sound incorporates catchy hooks with Country and Folk inspirations, drawing influence from Phoebe Bridgers, Joan Baez, and Charli Adams. As a child, Rae played piano and eventually taught herself how to play guitar. Rae has previously performed (as Rachael Travers) part of a band but has transitioned to a solo career where she has since received recognition from Nashville News and BBC Radio. Writing music is her primary focus, and she is currently working on her first EP.
Winding Way Records signed Rachael’s single, “Hope” for a sync agreement as it showcases her distinct and hauntingly beautiful vocal abilities. With simple, yet profound lyrics, “Hope” provides a feeling of comfort and peace in these trying times. The track’s songwriting makes it the ideal cinematic song to accompany an emotionally-charged movie or TV scene. Winding Way is adding Rachael to its growing sync library, which covers a range of genres and moods.
