Wineshank are a newer musical entity that have unified their collective experience into a style of music that is lush with new forms and fresh musical elements. Their style was realized through 70’s inspired riffs and melodies, jazz inspired chord sequences and unique vocalizations. The songs are journeys into unknown lyrical and melodic landscapes where musical expectations are sent asunder. Melody and rhythm are king in this world and those that follow will hear the heart call.
The band have just released their debut album called ‘Distant Calling’ with A & B Side singles ‘High In Amsterdam’ and 'Hearing The Verses'. The A Side single is dedicated to the works of Vincent Van Gogh and Bob's love of Amsterdam. The B Side is dedicated to the memory of John Burnett (JB) and the times he and Bob shared during the 70's.
The 2017 band line-up features song-smith Bob Wijnschenk on vocals and guitar, Clive Stevens on drums and Mike Mathews on bass. Clive’s style, always unique and individual, brings a crisp and snappy feel to the songs. Mike, ever the technician, is always ‘on the money’ laying down solid grooves time after time.
