The first thing you should know about Andrew Winton is that he’s a seriously good guitarist… In company with some of Australia’s finest singer-songwriters, most notably Jeff Lang, Winton uses a blues base for many of his creations, slipping into jazz grooves, even gospel mode, here and there.

Rhythms Magazine – July 2013

I'm sitting here on a Sunday morning simply overwhelmed by The Decompression Chamber! It is immediately one of my favourite albums of 2006 and I'm only up to track 3! Lyrically strong and melodically rich, Andrew's playing is superb, the arrangements are stunning, the production outstanding. What more can anyone want?

John Carver - PBSfm Melbourne. – July 2013

Andrew was lovely, and everyone thought he was great, his music was a really good fit for the laid back beach vibe of the event and he is very talented.
I would definitely recommend him!
