WINDSOR OAKS FAREWELL SHOW (for now) + ALBUM RELEASE 

Well folks there has been a lot going on behind the scenes in WINDSORLAND lately and
it’s time to let the cat out of the bag....

GREAT NEWS!!! I have recently gotten engaged!!!  That’s right, I asked the woman of
my dreams to marry me this past March (and she actually said YES haha) and we
couldn’t be more excited!

What does this mean for Windsor Oaks do you ask? Well it is going to change some things that’s for sure. In August I will be moving to the Texas, the Lone Star state! Yes, I know that may come to most of you as a surprise but it is something Katie (my fiancé) and I have been planning on for quite sometime. She recently took a great job and opportunity there so we will be relocating so she can further her career. It absolutely breaks my heart that I have to leave the GREAT STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA, my home of 27 years, but as one amazing chapter ends, another
beautiful one begins.

Windsor Oaks has been, and will always be, my bread and butter. These past 6 years have been absolutely amazing to say the least. We have seen lots of change and lots of growth. We have seen members come and go, we have traveled and toured the U.S., shared the stage with countless talented bands and musicians, we have recorded lots of music and are about to release our NEXT ALBUM. (sorry spoiler alert! lol )!!!

I can not express in words how much all of these accomplishments, though small to some, mean to me and to us as a band. We have created friendships and memories that will last forever and I hope to share those with my family and children one day. But underneath the core of Windsor Oaks Band there has always been one constant thing that has kept us going.....the incomparable friendship, partnership, drive, and passion that Shane and I share for music and for life. I have known Shane since we were 4 years old! Yes, I bet you are saying to yourself, how have I put up with that walking ball of fur for so long haha?! Well Shane is like a brother to me and I have always looked up to him for his kindness towards life and people, and for his amazing talents in music. We have shared many memories together, shed blood together, cried together, laughed together, shared many, many a beer together, and shared the stage more times than I can count together, and we always will. He is, and will always be, my best friend. So as long as the two of us are still alive, even if it’s not in the same state, WINDSOR OAKS WILL STILL EXIST! But for now we will be taking a hiatus from the regular shows we play. We still 
plan to continue to record music together for as long as we live. Don’t think this is going to 
stop Shane from playing either. He will still be busy with his other projects including the 
very talented Kasey Tyndall, The Pseudo Cowboys, and Cosmic Superheroes. I plan to also continue my musical career in Dallas as I have already been in contact with bands to begin playing with. I’ll keep you posted on that ;)



With that being said AUGUST 12, 2016 will be my LAST SHOW at DEEP SOUTH The Bar!!! We have planned one hell of night so we really need you guys to come out and send me off with a (excuse my french) f*@#ing BANG!!! We have an amazing line up with Cosmic Superheroes, and The Pseudo Cowboys sharing the stage with us! Shane plays in all of these bands so he is going to have his hands full that night! Show starts at 9pm!  JOIN THE FACEBOOK EVENT HERE.

We are also pleased to announce that former member Mr. Brandon Scott McLean will be playing guitar for us along with Mr. Paul Sanders playing keys! So you guys definitely don’t want to miss this one! Our set will feature lots of oldies from our entire catalog and a lot of new ones you haven’t heard yet........(drumroll please) because we will be RELEASING our 4th ALBUM!!! (title soon to come haha) All in all, it’s going to be one hell of a night and we can’t wait to share it with you!

Even though this is our last show this will not be the last time you hear from us.  We will continue to update you on all of our musical endeavors and everything in between. We both would like to sincerely say THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for the continued love and support from all of our friends, family, and fans, over the past 6 years.  We could not have done it without you that is for damn sure.  

We hope this letter has reached you all well and can’t wait to see you AUGUST 12th 9PM 
at Deep South the Bar in Raleigh, the city of oaks!!!

Always and truly yours,

Alex & Shane ­ WINDSOR OAKS BAND

LIFE: A Beautiful Key Change (2014)

by Windsor Oaks Band

After recording 'TAKE A CHANCE'(2013) in Long Island NY with acclaimed producers Steven Haigler and Mike Watts, we decided to take that amazing learning experience and apply it to this new batch of songs with a slightly different approach. We wanted to really craft these songs and hold nothing back both instrumentally and vocally. As we narrowed down the list we found 7 songs that could be recorded and represented the way they were truly meant to be. We were able to expand our creativity and focus on the arrangements by adding certain instrumentation and vocal backing we had previously not used before. Being friends for 25 plus years, you grow, learn, and experience many things together. "LIFE: A Beautiful Key Change" represents that for us, not just as musicians and friends, but as people on this earth. We hope you enjoy this album as much as we enjoyed making it for you. Thanks for listening!
