In 2010 he scored Jeff Nichols' award-winning TAKE SHELTER and has since scored all of Nichols' films, including MUD, MIDNIGHT SPECIAL, and the Academy Award-nominated LOVING. 2018 saw Wingo moving into television, providing the score for both Showtime's KIDDING and HBO's Emmy Award-winning BARRY. In addition to his scoring work he led the band Ola Podrida, releasing three albums to wide acclaim and touring the US and Europe multiple times.
