Exclusive Artist Interview: Winchester 7 & the Runners

When it comes to solid rockers like Winchester 7 & the Runners, a truly epic and international projectional form of musical magic would eventually manifest as the centerpiece to bring a brilliant entity together through both talent and dedication. Reminiscent of industry classic heavyweights like The Rolling Stones, The Black Keys and a slew of others with a similar calibre, each member of the band’s personal influences would eventually get each key player to find destiny to cross paths to begin a signature sound that is insatiably unique and versatile. Basically, W7 & the Runners would seek musical refuge, but there’s a long story involved. And today, we get the opportunity to ask them some relevant questions about all things band and member related, and are more than excited to do so. But first, let’s give some insight into the bands origins, in-betweens; past present and future by taking a glance into their respected bio.

When Phil Voorhees (bass) and Jack Kane (drums) decided to pull a runner, they didn’t expect that the one to come after them would be Winchester 7 (vocals, ukulele). None of them imagined that when their paths finally crossed, a few bass notes and halting drum beat would be met with a rocking ukulele reply, vocal harmony, and…music. Together, Winchester 7 & the Runners, have since found that a forgotten world, beyond the dome welcomes their music and films even as their friendship grows. Out of Atlanta, Georgia-based (home to Winchester 7), Sanctuary Studio; though runners, Voorhees now resides in Amsterdam and Kane is itinerant within the United Kingdom; the trio deliver their unique blend of indie garage rock with alternative, classic, and surf influences.


How many years have you guys been active?

Well, despite purposeful appearances “we” are a one-man band and have been active since about 2017.

Where are you guys currently based out of? And how is the scene out there?

Atlanta, GA though our bio includes bassist, Phil Voorhees being out of Amsterdam and drummer, Jack Kane, being itinerant to the United Kingdom. Overall, things are quarant-errific, though I’m hopeful for things to become more typically active in 2021.

How’d you guys come up with your band name?

Well, I’m Winchester 7 and the story goes that Phil and Jack were pulling a runner; but, when I caught up with them, we decided to form a band instead of returning to our dome.

You guys have a vast array of versatility, what are some of your guys personal musical influences?

Thank you! I’d say we’re heavily Beatles influenced, Paul McCartney, particularly. But, we most certainly draw upon other classic rock, post-punk, Brit pop, and alternative rock.

•What’s one of the best and worst shows you’ve played since your formation?

Well, due to apparent reasons we have moreseo focused on recording and music video production, to date. As such, most of our gigs are rather intimate affairs and have only suffered a few embarrassingly stray notes.

What genre(s) would you consider your band? Shed a little light on that.

We call it “Indie ukulele rock”. It’s certainly rock, but we like to remind you of the ukulele as you’re unlikely to otherwise notice it by listening alone.

How many releases have you guys put out this far? And what do you have set for the future?

Argos Holiday is our third EP release. After a short holiday break, we expect to head straight back into the studio to begin work on our follow-up.

What would you consider your best release so far?

Well, it’s hard to pick favorites, but I’m rather proud of Dirty Laundry off our latest EP, Argos Holiday.

What message do you have for your fans? What should inspire them to listen to your tunes?

Stay safe, enjoy a happy holidays; and let’s all hope for a still happier, healthier new year.

Regarding our tunes, if our usual seven tracks of Argos Holiday aren’t enough, I hope that its bonus tracks including a cover of David Bowie’s Modern Love and the Stuart Epps (George Harrison, Elton John, Led Zeppelin, Oasis) mix of our Alfred Hitchcock inspired song, The Saint Simon Killer, will.

What can we expect from you guys in 2021?

Hopefully, our next EP and continued releases of original, companion music videos for each track including previews of the later release.

Career Highlights: Rising Artist Christone Participates In High Class Photo Session By Renowned Fashion Photography Team In Budapest

Rising artist Christone has been linking up with some extraordinary photography talent lately and adding a vast array of new photo sessions to his artist portfolio.

Photographer Jozsef Balogh:

“Photography is my main passion, hobby and true love. I was fourteen when I had my first contact with the magical world of photography. At that time I had an analog filmmaker camera and it was love at first sight. I also had a wonderful teacher, Mr. Papp Janos, who showed me all the basic and most important tips and tricks in this industry.

My hobby eventually became my passion and my life changed a lot when I accidently met Mr. Varga Jozsef, one of the biggest names in the modelling and fashion world in Hungary. After this accidental meeting, I became more involved in the world of the fashion photography and modelling portfolio shoots. It was love at first sight to this industry and there was no turning back; I dove right in.

I’ve attended many photography workshops and improved my techniques with different photography courses. This industry demands a professional with continuous self improvement and a need for becoming better at your craft day by day. I would love to highlight one of my favourite workshops at the Tripont Light Academy where I was mastering the lightening techniques for films and photography. Also, my main mentor, Mr. Vass Tamas, taught me the most important tips and tricks in fashion and modelling photography. I obtained my most useful instructions, critics and appreciation regarding my work from him.”
