After meeting at a Buddhist fire ritual, Wolff and Amanda drove from Florida to the Pacific Northwest where they soaked up ten years of rain and gave birth to over fifty songs. Singing from the depths of the American wilderness, The Winterlings shine their literary lyrics on subjects ranging from transgender Civil War soldier Jennie Hodgers to a friend’s double lung transplant to the life story of a housefly.
Featuring acoustic and electric guitars, banjitar, violin and foot drums, The Winterlings have played the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., CMJ Music festival in Manhattan, The Juan De Fuca Festival in Port Angeles, Fremont Abbey, The Bearsville Theater, Benaroya Hall, Appel Farm, SEATAC International Airport, The Tractor Tavern and Seattle’s iconic EMP (Experience Music Project) Museum for the 20th Anniversary of the release of Nirvana’s In Utero Album. They've sold out shows on both coasts and shared stages with Blue Oyster Cult, Frazey Ford (The Be Good Tanyas), The Maldives, Danny Schmidt and Cataldo. Winterlings songs have appeared in multiple film projects including Outdoor Research’s Tiny House Tour (“Belize”) and the Irish Documentary Jennie Hodgers produced by TG4 (“Jennie Hodgers”).
