ON MARCH 7TH WINSTON WAS INDUCTED INTO THE KANSAS MUSIC HALL OF FAME.
Winston Apple is a singer/songwriter, a dynamic performer, a recording artist (both audio and video) and a political activist. He performs solo, with a couple of different backing groups ("Winston Apple and the Two Tones" and "Winston Apple and Friends"), and as a performance artist ("The Winston Apple Show" - a mostly musical, multi-media performance art project consisting of a delightful combination of live performance and music video; featuring both original songs and unique versions of cover songs; and including a dash of comedy and elements of dance).
Some of Winston's songs are overtly political in nature, some are spiritual, and others deal with the more typical topics of popular music (love and love gone wrong). Depending on the venue and the nature of the audience, he can do sets that consist completely of either cover songs or original material, as well as any combination of either political or non-political songs.
Winston is also actively trying to make the world a better place through non-musical activities. He is the founder of "Populists In Action" (a political action committee) working to end corporate control of our government by empowering and inspiring voters and to pass legislation that will move us to clean, renewable energy as rapidly as possible.
