The Rooted Wings is Samantha Hawkins and John Winters. The duet's recent genesis was the result of a few open mic collaborations. It was clear from their very first performance that there was something special about the music they made together. The next logical step was to capitalize on that magic and form a cohesive act together, which is exactly what they did.
Both alumni of Austin Peay State University, Samantha's performance background includes private study in music and competitive dance. Additionally, she has been singing in bands since high school. John also began performing professionally in high school, and went on to study guitar formally at university. In recent years, John has been performing regularly as a solo guitarist/vocalist aboard cruise ships.
Samantha's influences include Stevie Nicks, Sheryl Crow, Rachel Yagamata, Fiona Apple, and Sublime. John was influenced by acts like Earth, Wind, and Fire, Little Feat, The Police, Martin Sexton, and Stevie Wonder. Drawing from this woderfully eclectic group of influences is one of the key components of the great music of The Rooted Wings.
