Austin John Winkler
After a three-year hiatus from the music world, multi-platinum singer/songwriter, Austin John Winkler is back with the release of his highly anticipated solo EP entitled Love Sick Radio.

Having sold millions of albums, with numerous hits under his belt, including Hinder's breakthrough hit, "Lips Of An Angel", Winkler is ready to share with the world what he's doing musically now.

Winkler's lyrics, distinctive voice and passion for music is stronger than ever with his new modern twist on rock and roll. The six-song EP featuring guest appearances by Sophie Summers and country star, Jessie James Decker, was released on April 22nd, 2016.

"It's a very exciting time for me", says the Oklahoma City native. "It's been a long time in the making and I think a lot of people will be pleasantly surprised at the musical direction I took when I stepped into the studio to make this record. It's quite a bit different from Hinder or anything that I've ever done."

After parting ways with Hinder in 2013, Winkler began to take a different approach to songwriting. Instead of trying to adapt what he thought his fans wanted to hear, Winkler decided to take some risks and embrace his creative freedom as a solo artist. Winkler started his solo project with a clean slate and one thing in mind, "To be as open and honest as I can be with nothing to lose!"

Winkler dove into this project wearing all of his musical influences on his sleeve and never looked back. He grew up listening to everything from The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, Guns N' Roses, Heart and Elton John to Sublime, Michael Jackson, Biggie Smalls and Eminem, just to name a few.

"I hope poeple love the new sound and songs I've written...but no matter what, I am proud of these songs and hope they in some way connect with my fans both old and new. These songs really helped me get through some tough times and I hope they can also help anyone who can relate to these topics."

Austin John Winkler is looking forward to embarking on this musical journey again, but this time all on his own.
Smile Empty Soul
Smile Empty Soul
Smile Empty Soul was a heavy alternative trio formed while its three members were still in Santa Clarita, CA, high schools. Led by singer/guitarist Sean Danielson, the band also included drummer Derek Gledhill and bassist Ryan Martin. After honing their sound with numerous hometown gigs, Smile Empty Soul began venturing to the Sunset Strip, and eventually passed a demo to Todd Parker of the Los Angeles indie ThroBack. That exposure led to a deal with Jason Flom's Lava imprint, which was expanding in the wake of early signee Kid Rock's white-hot success. The trio hooked up with producer John Lewis Parker, who was at the helm for their self-titled debut, issued by Lava in May 2003. With its screeching guitars and Danielson's rage-filled vocals, the album was indebted to the alternative sounds of the early '90s.

Achieving musical intricacy comes naturally to this 5-piece band hailing from Springfield, MO. Formed in October of 2009 they invoke, in their purest form, the sounds that engulf your senses and leave you restless. By fusing soaring guitar melodies, overlaying thunderous drums beats flowing through unhinged rhythms, and Josh Krone's dynamic anthems they create a polished collection of emotive music
Subject To Loss
Subject To Loss
Subject to Loss is a 5 piece modern rock band based out of Springfield Missouri: The band started in late 2009 as an acoustic two piece with Garrett and Kuan and as the sound progressed came the need to add percussion. After playing the local clubs as a 3 piece for a year the band added their fourth member Jesse to take over the guitar and shift Garrett to lead vocals. After signing to Tate Music, Justin was added as lead guitar and Dru was brought in on drums to solidify the hard hitting, raw sound that STL projects to push their message of determination, recovery and strength. Their debut release, "Take Another", dares the listener to get up, pick up the pieces, and try again; to push for what they need; to turn life's negative into their own positive.
