WINTERHAWK was formed in late 1992 by founding member, Guitarist/Songwriter Mark Carrillo, who had the idea of putting together an “all originals” band. Tired of playing other peoples music he recruited the talents of other musicians with a similar vision. A year later Bassist/Guitarist Sam Hornedo joined and the rest, as they say, is history. As well as being good friends, the two have formed a unique collaborative team of song writing and arranging with a lot of attention placed on finding the right harmonies. Recently, they were joined by Sam's Daughter Leia Hornedo, she brings a special and unique vocal dynamic which rounds out WINTERHAWK's sound.
