Matthew Mayer continues to talk with the legendary, and one of the foremost instrumental composers of our time, George Winston, in this anticipated Part 2 interview on the Going Solo Podcast titled: “Thank You George.”
In this episode, Winston continues to share insights with Mayer about his approaches to creativity and life in general. From his influences from James Booker to Professor Longhair, as well as the importance of listening to your subconscious. As Winston travels to another performance on the road, towards Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Mayer and Winston cover a wide variety of topics beyond music.
George Winston is undeniably a household name. He’s inspired fans and musicians alike with his singular solo acoustic piano songs for more than 40 years while selling 15 million albums. A tireless road warrior playing nearly 100 concerts annually, live performance for Winston is akin to breathing. Winston’s music is evocative, offering us all a chance to take a step back from our perpetually busy lives and let our minds adventurously wander.
George Winston’s new album ‘Restless Wind’ is a portrayal of Winston’s place in a chaotic world – his compositions extend solace with an idiosyncratic grace.
In basketball there is Michael Jordan, in boxing there is Mohammed Ali, and in solo performing, there is George Winston.
