Brimming with bubblegum angst, Cheyenne Benton breathes lyrical fire into the world of atmospheric indie pop.

With sincere, defiant lyrics, Benton creates an infectious wonderland of retro nostalgia and futuristic instrumentation. Both her explosive melodies and transparent storytelling are heavily influenced by years performing in musical theatre.

Benton’s themes range from the confusion of human emotion, to heartbreak, to gender roles.

Influenced by female powerhouses such as Lorde, Lights, and Kesha, Cheyenne Benton affirms the beauty of individuality, encouraging young women to “own who you are. You are allowed to take up space in any way you want.”

Benton released her debut EP in December 2017. Her single “My Heart” was nominated as a semi-finalist in the 2018 International Songwriting Competition.

“Fierce, yet hauntingly celestial, Cheyenne Benton brings a lush, sweet-girl-gone-sinister flair to the indie pop scene, more sure of herself than ever. And she won’t apologize.” ~ Carissa Arend

Ethan Alijah is a pop/rock musician that originated in Temecula, California, with a mission to promote self love to his fans. He draws inspiration from bands such as Green Day and Fall out Boy, which influenced his simple hooks and energetic beats that continue to captivate the listener.

From the band:

Hey there, hi there, ho there. We are Winnabego.

There’s Keshaun, the drummer. Knows more about the drums and producing than he does about his biological father. There’s our bass player, Canaan. When he isn’t slapping the bass, he’s hitting baseballs harder than he does steroids. If you follow me here we got Aidan, our lead singer and guitar player. This Brazilian sure make you question if he’s Aidan or, Steve Carrell in disguise. Lastly, Garzeezy the keys player. When he isn’t tickling the ivory, he is often thinking about one of 3 things. The Manhattan Project, GDP, or some good ol’ fashion American baseball.

We hail from Oceanside, California. In between the OC and SD. Where the surf meets the turf, where the Padres meet the Angels, where the Observatory meets the Observatory North Park. All four of the Founding Fathers of the band draw inspiration from culture and music we have experienced.

From the musical tastings of Dayglow, Hippocampus, Your Neighbors, Inner Wave, and Magic City Hippies. We want our music to be your dance party. We want our music to be the ending of an indie film where everyone is stiff dancing at the kickback.

We want our music to be driving down the PCH on a Tuesday in July where the salty air hits your face. We want our music to be where you go to one of our shows and meet the next love of your life, or heartbreak, or homie G. Our music was made to dance to, listen to, and enjoy. Will you take a listen?
