Steve Wynn fra Dream Syndicate kommer til Madam Felle i vinter. Vi gleder oss vilt!

His email address and his Instagram handle are both “cultartist.”   He’s never had a top 40 record or won a Grammy award.

And yet Steve Wynn has forged a four-decade career in which he’s recorded over 400 songs and played well over 3000 shows to fans around the world who can name and debate every song across the dozens of records he’s made in his various musical guises. 

A cult artist indeed.  And yet, to talk to Wynn, it’s almost as though it was the design from the start.

“Sure, I was a fan of the Beatles and the Stones but my passion always leaned towards the ones who lived below the radar.  Most of my musical obsessions were bands like the Velvet Underground, the Stooges, Modern Lovers, Gun Club—bands like that who never sold records in their time but who also made great records that just grew in stature over time.”

The first band that comes to mind for most people aware of Wynn’s music is The Dream Syndicate.  Wynn founded the band back in 1982 with Karl Precoda, Kendra Smith and Dennis Duck and their debut album “The Days of Wine and Roses” was a cornerstone of the indie rock scene that would develop in the band’s wake.
