Winter is the project of songwriter Samira Winter, whose love for guitar music and nostalgic imagery inspired the dream pop/indie rock four piece group. Samira grew up in Curitiba, Brazil listening to her American father's punk records, and her Brazilian mother's MPB (Brazilian Popular Music) tunes. While living in Boston during her college years, she found a love for shoegaze which led to her collaboration with Nolan Eley who recorded and produced Winter's first EP "Daydreaming" and LP "Supreme Blue Dream." In 2013 Samira relocated to Los Angeles where the band currently resides. With a handful of releases in their catalog, including the critically acclaimed “Ethereality,” the (mostly) Brazilian album “Estrela Magica,” and the recent “Hazy” EP, the band continues to write new material and tour both nationally and internationally. Winter aspires to connect people to their inner child by making blissful, beautiful, dream pop, paired with dynamic and melodic shoegaze.
