Interview with Austin Winkler as we talk about his new EP, Love Sick Radio

May 17, 2016

It was nearly two years to the date, that we last interviewed Austin Winkler as he was forging ahead in the new chapter of his musical career after departing Hinder. He has been quite busy for the past two years working on writing, recording and creating his own path on his musical journey.  Austin Winkler recently released his first EP titled Love Sick Radio, under the name Austin John and it is a great collection of six very diverse and creative songs that will have you hooked on his new style of music. His new music has taken him into a different musical direction than his work with Hinder. It has given him the opportunity to embrace his creative freedom and embark into uncharted waters. Austin comments, “It’s a very exciting time for me.

It inspires me when I see people make that great leap of faith and head off into that new path and become an even stronger person. I believe a great example in this is watching Austin Winkler as he has forged ahead in the new chapter of his musical career.  It was last year that we brought you the news of Austin‘s departure from Hinder, but then to hear how he was going to continue with a new musical venture, I was truly elated.
