By the time Edgar Winter left his hometown of Beaumont, Texas in the 1960s, he was already technically proficient in every aspect of music. A child prodigy who achieved international success early on, Winter has found an audience in every major entertainment medium – music, film and television. A prolific writer, Winter’s music encompasses many different genres, including rock, jazz, blues, and pop. From his critically acclaimed 1970 debut release, Entrance, Winter has demonstrated his unique style and ability to cross the genre lines and do the unexpected. His recording of “Tobacco Road” is a powerful, emotionally devastating masterpiece that propelled him into the national spotlight. Other Winter classic recordings include the number one “Frankenstein” and the ever popular “Free Ride.” With over 20 albums and numerous collaborative efforts to his credit, Winter has not been satisfied to ride the wave of popular music stardom. Major national television and radio campaigns have relied on Winter’s music to advertise their products. Winter has also made frequent television appearances and his music can be heard in no fewer than 15 film and television projects including the recent recently released film Tupac Resurrection, where his hauntingly beautiful song “Dying to Live” was featured as “Runnin’ (Dying to Live).”
