Artist Feature: Bobby Winns

You may have heard us playing out Daydream by Bobby Winns recently here on Phoenix FM – but who is Bobby? We spoke to him to find out more about his musical loves and life.

Tell us a little bit about your yourself?

I’m a French Canadian artist, born in Boulogne-sur-Mer, in the north of France.

When did you first start to develop a passion for music?

In my youth, when I got my first LPs and cassettes.

Which artists did you listen to while growing up?

In my very early years, I listened to many excellent rock, pop and electronic albums my father was playing on his turntable – artists such as Kraftwerk, Jean-Michel Jarre, Tangerine Dream, Gary Numan, Devo, the Rolling Stones and so many others.

Later, as a teenager, I discovered great 80s music, especially artists like Queen, Depeche Mode, Chic, Duran Duran, Missing Persons and some electronic artists like Paul Hardcastle, Vangelis and the very beginning of house music.

How would you describe your music to someone who hasn’t heard you before?

With the recent emergence of synthwave, a microgenre of electronic music, showed me the spirit of 80s was still alive. My heart and soul told me to compose a homage to electronic music of this decade.

Like Vangelis, I never learned music theory – solfège or musical chords. I only trust my shaped ears thanks to my musical culture and intuition.

What music have you recorded and released to date?

“One” is my first album, and that’s telling me it’s never too late 😀 Globally, it’s a mix of subgenres like synthwave, retrowave, darkwave, new wave, outrun, futurewave and early 80s experimental music. People can consider it as a logical continuation of what 80s music has offered us.

Which artists do you enjoy listening to at the moment – and do they influence your work?

These days, I listen to Zee, Billy Idol, The System, Fashion, Earth Wind & Fire and Missing Persons.

Of course, almost all of them have influenced the creation of my album, even if some of these artists have a different musical genre.

Who would your dream collaboration be with?

A collaboration – why not? 😉 Maybe with a music veteran, even if I never learned music. Synthwave artists are welcome too. Some synthwave artists are very impressive by the way.

What are your plans for the future?

If inspiration is still present, maybe a second album in the future? 😉

Where can we find out more about you?

I have a Bandcamp page where you can buy my album “One”.

You can find my socials and streaming links on my Linktree. I’m on Instagram @bobbywinns.
