Be sure to rock on down to Cherry Bar on the 31st of January 2014 for the album launch to kick the year along nicely. Winterun bassist Matty Taylor chatted for a bit in the final countdown for the latest self titled release.

MAtty Taylor - Winterun
What instrument/s do you play?
I play bass guitar and backing vocals.

How would you describe the band’s sound?
Riff-driven stoner rock. Some bands don’t like the ‘stoner rock’ tag but hey, I calls it like I sees it.

Following from part one of the Winterun intervierview series started last week with Nick Dunstan it is now time to shine the spotlight on Guy Martin.

Guy Martin - Winterun
What instrument/s do you play?
Primarily the guitar, lead & rhythm.

Do you have any favourite bands or artists? How do you think they may have shaped your sound?
I think Hendrix Pink Floyd (Gilmore) & Page (Zeppelin) have always been a massive influence on my style & take the most credit for it. The blues and wailing guitar solos helped me shape it. Hammett & Dimebag were also massive influences – just ball breaking riffs and screaming solos!
