Jacob Vanko Signed

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.

Bonne Finken Signed

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.

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.

Emmy Law Signed

Winding Way Records is excited to announce that we’ve added Emmy Law to our sync roster. Emmy is an indie pop singer-songwriter living in Atlanta, Georgia. She has performed in some of the city’s top venues, won the John Jarrard Foundation songwriting contest and opened onstage for some of Nashville’s renowned songwriters.

Emmy Law

Emmy’s song “Goodbye” is the perfect combination of her unique voice, strong song writing, and Americana sensibilities. Emma cites her influences from Sara Bareilles to Copeland and she artfully plays guitar and piano in her blend of folk and pop across the Southeast. “Goodbye” is a light-hearted and longing, fitting for a bittersweet goodbye or a new beginning and It’s a perfect addition to your fall acoustic playlist.

Attack The Sound Signed

Winding Way Records has signed the genre bending Chicago band Attack The Sound in a Sync-Rep agreement. The group describes their sound as “Chi-Pop”, a unique blend of Jazz, R&B, Hip Hop, and Pop that comes from their Chicago roots. They currently have three singles out, our favorite is “Love is War.”

Attack The Sound

Early in spring, Attack The Sound brought us their single “Love is War,” a well crafted track about going the distance in the name of love. As the social and political landscapes have changed over this summer, “Love is War” has become an increasingly powerful song through its reflection on commitment to love in the face of hardship. Both a love song and a protest anthem, “Love is war” is a wonderful addition to the Winding Way Records Sync Library, perfect for a culture documentary or a love story.

Rachael Travers – Signed

Winding Way records has signed Rachael 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, Rachael played piano and eventually taught herself how to play guitar. Rachael has previously performed as 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.

Ella Beyer Signed

Winding Way Records is happy to announce that Ella Beyer has officially signed a record deal with our label. Ella is a 17-year-old singer/ songwriter inspired by experience, emotion, and the art of those who came before her. Citing artists like Carole King, The Beatles, Ingird Michaelson, and Sara Bareilles, Beyer’s music uses smart, relatable lyrics and unforgettable hooks to explore young adult experiences with relevance to both teenagers and adults alike. Expect new music from her this fall!

Valerie Hartry Signed

We are happy to announce Valarie Hartry has joined Winding Way Records in a Sync-Rep contract. Valarie Hartry is an emerging singer and songwriter originating from Ontario, Canada. Valarie Hartry lives and breathes music as she gets her musical roots from her mother who was in a folk band.

Reverse- Valarie Hartry

The rising artist developed her style and sound by trying all genres and not narrowing her vision. Influenced by the songwriting in folk music, to the flow from rap, and rhythm from jazz, Valarie Hartry has a unique style that will have listeners captivated. With negative past experience in labels and feeling stuck in a box, Valarie decided to rebrand herself to what she is today. The Canadian artist is one to keep an eye on and ear out for as she is set to leave her footprint in the music scene.

Sharon Little Signed

In 2006, Sharon Little released her first independent album Drawing Circles before being signed to CBS Records in early 2008.  Sharon then toured with Robert Plant, Alison Krauss and T Bone Burnett on their North American Raising Sand tour.  Little continued touring through 2008 and 2009 with Chris Isaak, Al Green, Pat Benatar and Jonny Lang and others.

Her second album Perfect Time for a Breakdown (CBS Records), was released on May 27, 2008 and it charted on the Billboard Heatseekers chart for several weeks.   Several of Sharon’s songs were featured on television programs such as CSI:NY, Sons of Anarchy, The Good Wife, NUMB3RS and NCIS. The song “Follow That Sound” from Perfect Time for a Breakdown was also chosen as the theme for the A&E series “The Cleaner” and “Ooh Wee” placed in “The Ghost Whisperer” “Implosion” episode in March 2010.

Paper Doll, Sharon’s third album, was being co-produced by Grammy-winner Don Was but sadly CBS Records closed its doors at the end of 2011 before its release.  Sharon continued on as an indie artist and we are super excited to work with Sharon and Tim on this new project.
