Texas-based rock singer-songwriter Mark Winters returns with a new folk rock inspired single, ‘I See You’
Mark Winters’ new single “I See You” takes you on a journey through a lush garden to clear the fog of day to day life and set your sights on those who really matter, bringing a more folk rock influence akin to bands like The Lumineers and Mumford and Sons. With classic stomp elements, added harmonies, and an unexplored acoustic vibe, “I See You” shows Mark’s playful personality as an artist.
The Texas-based Winters’ musical roots lie heavily influenced by rock, blues rock, and pop artists but the songwriter is much more than that; a poet, entrepreneur, optimist, family man, and a bonafide rocket scientist. Winters has a degree in Aerospace, Aeronautical, and Astronautical Engineering, and his math and science background guides his musical explorations.
“I like taking complex things such as emotions and expressing them in a way that’s easy to understand. Balancing my right-brained creativity with my analytical left-brain is part of a life-long journey; music special place where I can explore this balance”, Mark says.
Winters first picked up a guitar to play a song for his wife on their anniversary and that’s when he discovered the joy of connecting with people through music. Mark combines music, poetry, a science background, and love for his community to form his signature sound, “rock with a positive vibe.”
“I See You” is out now and available on all streaming platforms.
“Winters writes songs that are catchy and engaging that will brighten your day and lift your mood.”
-Indie Band Guru
“Absolutely stuffed with so much emotion he makes sure to balance it all in a way that feels timeless.”
“Musically, the songs on ‘SlipStream’ run the gamut from straight guitar-based classic rock to bluesier jams, pop metal, Beach Boys-type ballads, and psychedelia. There’s even a mini-rap in one number.”
-The Houston Press
About Mark Winters:
Texas-based rock singer-songwriter Mark Winters is many things: a witty poet, passionate musician, entrepreneur, optimist, family man, and a bonafide rocket scientist. He first picked up a guitar to play a song for his wife on their anniversary. That’s when he discovered the joy of connecting with people through music. Mark combines music, poetry, a science background, and love for his community to form his signature sound, “rock with a positive vibe.”
His musical roots are in rock, blues rock, and pop, and John Mayer, Tom Petty, and Jason Mraz are significant influences.
“My music starts from a place of poetry and creative inspiration, and I use my ‘rocket-scientist brain’ to find structures that help me explore that initial burst of inspiration and feeling – like writing haikus, my favorite! My grandmother taught me to express myself through poetry and I’m thankful to her for setting me on this creative and expressive path.”
Mark has a degree in Aerospace, Aeronautical, and Astronautical Engineering, and his math and science background guides his musical explorations. He likes taking complex things such as emotions and expressing them in a way that’s easy to understand. Balancing his right-brained creativity with his analytical left-brain is part of a life-long journey; music is one more place where he can explore this balance.
Since his debut album Slipstream in 2019 he’s garnered numerous positive reviews, has been placed on hundreds of playlists, and racked up over a million streams worldwide. He’s poised to continue this success with his sophomore album, Boundary Layer. Boundary Layer showcases the intersection of Mark’s scientific mind and his passion for positivity and good works. This album is a tribute to those who have helped Mark break out of life’s “normal” boundaries and pursue the person he was meant to be. His goal with this new record is to inspire others to break through barriers in their lives and to use emotional connections and energy to move in the direction they were meant to go. Scientifically, a boundary layer is the place on an object in a moving fluid where things can either start moving or stand still.
He and his beloved wife have always had compassion for people in the world and believe it’s important to give back to your community. Mark enjoys mentoring entrepreneurs like himself, and donates a lot of his time to philanthropic organizations throughout the Houston area.
Each song on his first album is an emotional story about his life’s journey’s. Slipstream is the stream of air behind any moving object, usually in the context of making the effort of moving behind someone easier for everyone, like birds flying in a v-formation flock. This is the feeling Mark experienced while working with the incredible musicians and producers who helped create the album.
