Welcome to our interview segment of The Tour Bus Music Show. On this episode we will feature Winbourne from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. We caught up with the band short after they returned from their performance at South By Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas. Winbourne was kind enough to take some time away from their rehearsals at the Healing Place Dream Center in Baton Rouge and let us in on what has been going on with the group, their collective history, information on their current EP and the upcoming release later this year of their full length LP.
Our interview is about 1 ½ hours in length including music and was interesting, entertaining, and informative. Over the course of the interview we feature four songs off of their 2010 EP entitled “As We Are”. The songs we feature are (In order): “Let Me Love You, Street Signs, Easy and What Were You Thinking”. The background music in the beginning of the interview is an instrumental version of “Retrospect”
We were not only impressed with their music, but with each of them. Their personalities, charm, and genuineness as individuals made the interview a pleasure in itself. We at Audios Maximus Media Network recommend that you make the opportunity to see them live as well as purchasing and adding their music to your collection. They are defiantly worth hearing time and again.

Their EP is available at many music retailers online including Amazon and iTunes.
***Winbourne was founded in 2008 and has been setting their audiences on fire with their energy, talent, and passion for what they do. Music…and they do it well. Jordan, Chris (Doogie), Matt, Torrance and Terry are committed to their craft and it shows in everything they do. In our research on local music acts the first thing that drew us to the group was their music. It was positive, well written, masterfully arranged & produced.
Winbourne has been featured in The City Social, Tiger Weekly, The LSU Daily Reveille, 225 Magazine, and The Advocate. The band’s sound can be described as as alternative rock. Winbourne entered the Baton Rouge music scene by storm playing at every popular local venue including Chelsea’s, The Varsity and college gigs not to mention they have joined forces with other popular local bands such as Jake Smith.
With a rapidly growing fan base flocking to its Myspace, Twitter, and Facebook web pages, Winbourne has received avid local support of their originals. Fans’ favorites include “Easy,” “Let Me Love You,” and “Street Signs”. Fresh out of the studio the band’s focus is spreading their music to the world on their new pilot EP album “As We Are”. The six track record is now available on iTunes and at live shows.
Their loyal south Louisiana fan base now spreads outwards in hot response to their EP and enthralling live performance. Winbourne is preparing to get back in the studio to release a full length LP in the spring of 2011. In the mean time they continue to play locally and regionally as well as prepare for stage time in a slew of music festivals within the southeastern U.S. Whether blasting their live performances from the stage or rocking their “As We Are” EP through your own speakers, Winbourne will inspire you to Live Loud.
