Artist Spotlight

49 Winchester

Formed eight years ago on Winchester Street in the small mountain town of Castlewood, Virginia, the band started as a ragtag bunch of neighborhood teenagers who just wanted to get together for the sake of playing together.

“As we’ve aged and matured, our sound has gone from a softer place to this grittier, edgier tone that we have now,” says lead singer/guitarist Isaac Gibson. “So, we’re trending more towards being a rock band instead of a country band. But, at the same time, I don’t think anybody’s ever known quite what to call it.”

Upcoming shows:

Sept. 1 – Isle of Palms, SC
Sept. 2 – Wilmington, NC
Sept. 3 – Myrtle Beach, SC
Sept. 8-10 – Bristol, TN
Sept. 13-16 – Pryor, OK
Sept. 16 – Axton, VA
Sept. 21-23 – Lewisburg, WV
Sept. 30 – Oslo, Norway
