FRESH: ‘Falling For You’ – Abz Winter

Abz Winter is “Falling For You”

Picked from 100’s to feature on the Coventry City Of Culture 2021 Visual Album “Front Room Sessions”, 17 year old Abz Winter rose to the occasion and picked a genre very much 80’s retro in style with her new track, “Falling For You”, arising from the electronic dance music scene with a prominent bass line sound, the theme of the song is light hearted about finding and keeping Mr Right. Turn it up and tune in, the louder the better. It’s a fun, energetic good mood song.

“Falling For You” was written and recorded for the album from her front room using strict social distancing during lockdown. Un-signed Abz is already an accomplished singer/songwriter from the Midlands with a strong unique voice, she is always working hard on her songwriting and has had some great opportunities, this included working with Jin Jin an amazing British songwriter and Jess Glynne’s Manager and Fred Cox (Platinum Producer) who helped with her debut EP.

Abz was awarded Band Of The Month by BBC Introducing Coventry & Warwickshire September 2019 after only six months airplay, her single “Incompatible Me” received airplay on A National Radio Station, BBC Radio 2 by Dermot O’Leary on the Jo Whiley Show. Over the last ten months, Abz songs have had regular airplay on BBC Introducing Coventry and Warwickshire & West Midlands as well as most other local stations. Abz was also awarded ‘Best New Artist 2019’ by Pete Chambers, a writer for the Observer group.

2019 was a busy year for the teenager as she performed on the Unsigned Artist stages before Boyzone, Little Mix, Take That, Ariana Grande and Christina Aguilera on their respective tour dates at the Arena & Resorts World Birmingham. Abz has performed at lots of events and festivals Including Godiva, Ricoh Arena & Bike Fest and she also performed at the Coventry City Christmas Light Switch On 2019 to a huge crowd of over 9,000 people!

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
