The Belle Jar- Union Station
Mar 5, 2014
Classically trained in opera music, Alex Winston’s musical diversity is extensive. Winston, a Detroit native, grew up listening to MC5, Iggy Pop and The Stooges and the best in Motown and Americana. She opened for Chuck Berry in St. Louis and has recently worked with The Knocks to produce her debut mini-LP on HeavyRoc Music.
Scheduled to release Feb. 22, Sister Wife has the perfect combination of old and new with Winston’s unique touch to live up to the high expectations of all the “Big in 2011” lists her name appeared.
Standouts include “Choice Notes” with its feel good piano beats and catchy chorus; “Sister Wife” and its lofty but carefully arranged drums and Winston’s distinct vocals; “Sweet James” as it puts a fashionable spin on her Motown and Americana influences; and “Locomotive” with its catchy lyrics and airy melody.
Winston takes her musical whimsy and makes it accessible to just about any listener. She describes it best herself, “It’s feel good music.”
