Spotlight on ll ƜIƝƬƐɌ ll (11winter11)- An acoustic rock star with a voice that melts snow - Lanai Jarrico Reporting…

 

Winter, unlike the season, brings warmth, passion, and a vibrant personality full of humor to SL's live music environment.  He performs professionally in Real Life in countries all over Europe; Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Bulgaria, Romania, Cyprus, Serbia, and Hungary.


This powerful songwriter/performer performs a high energy, rock, blues rock and classic rock guitar show covering tunes from Elvis and the Beetles to Bon Jovi, White Snake, Aerosmith, Gun and Roses all the way to Metallica!


A home atmosphere filled with music encouraged him to begin playing the piano at seven and then he picked up the acoustic and electric guitar at the age of twelve. He had his first professional concert in 1998 and since then has performed for audiences as large as 15-20 K! 
As a songwriter/performer he says, "The emotion is what the song and the story behind it is what represents me and to those that listen."


With Winter, you can be sure that you will only get a real live performance. There is no pre-recorded playback. You get all the little variances of his "in the moment" showing, as he radiates out to each of you that request his interpretation, the finest music in SL.  Yes, my friend, WINTER IS HERE!


Interview with Winter

Lanai: Hi Winter, It is a pleasure getting the opportunity to chat with you. I’ve been hearing your name around the grid. You seem to be creating a buzz. Where are you from and what is your history with music?

Winter: Hello Lanai! nice to meet you, and thank you for your kind words! I am from Cyprus. My History with music started when I was 6 years old, as I began learning the piano, at 15 I picked my first Guitar and created my first Band. I Have been doing that ever since! :)

Lanai:  What does music mean to you and which person or people inspired you the most?

Winter: Music is my life. It keeps me sane... the first bands that inspired me the most, were bands like Metallica, Iron Maiden, Manowar and Megadeth.





Lanai: How did you discover Second Life and what were your first thoughts?

Winter: I first Entered Second Life in 2011 where I was in for only 6 months, on another Account. I deleted that account and after a 7 Year absence, I came back 2 years ago on Halloween :)

Lanai: Who helped you get started in your SL music career?

WInter: Dj Flames, Arisha, helped me get started and explained the basics. I used to sit around campfires and play songs for friends on voice. I really didn't know there was a live scene.





Lanai: Now that you have been performing in SL for the past 2 years, do you consider SL a game or an extension of your real life?

Winter: I consider SL a little bit of Everything! And a part of my RL! :)

Lanai: Every artist has something uniquely different from the other. How would you describe your style and genre?

Winter: My style and genre is Rock and Hard Rock,with a little Blues inside sometimes played with an acoustic Guitar. there are no effects (other than a little reverb), no playbacks, no Loopers or anything like that. I try to change a lot of songs to fit my style and way of playing. A lot of people call it 'Winterify' :))))

Lanai: What Genres of music do you personally listen to and which ones do you like to perform?

Winter: My Main Love is Heavy Metal and Classic Rock. I love to also listen to more toned down rock and Blues stuff. To me the most important part is Catchyness and Melody. This is also the style that I play in SL.





Lanai: What fulfillment do you get performing in Second Life compared to performing in front of a live audience?
Winter: It is VERY different. The coolest part of it, is that you get to play in front of People from ALL over the world at the same time. People who might not have ever heard you in RL. Another Cool thing is the friends that you make throughout the journey!
Lanai: Do you also perform in real life? With the pandemic how has that impacted you?
Winter: Yes I do perform in RL. I am the singer in Rock/Metal Band . Our 6th Album was just released 2 months ago and we have not been able to tour it or even get to perform some of the songs. I can't wait to perform for people again. The Buzz you get from the crowd and the reactions, when you see someone is VERY different, and emotions run high.
Lanai: You are a very talented artist. It shows in the crowds you draw in SL. What advice would you give others who want to perform and find success in SL?
Winter: My BIGGEST advice is Stay grounded and true to yourself and the people who come to watch you. Don't try to ride the high horse cause people are not stupid. Stay Humble and appreciative.
Lanai: What is your availability and how can venues book you for a performance?
Winter: Unfortunately the time zones are sometimes a disadvantage. I am on European Time. I can play anywhere between 9AM and 3PM SLT



Lanai: Is there anything else you would like to share with our reader?

Winter: I just want to say a BIG thank you to ALL the people who support me. I really appreciate them and all the fun and memories we create every day! Cheers and thank you!
