Life Beyond the Dome Rocks

Indie Ukulele Rock, by definition is intended to be fun. We're here to be part of that - Winchester 7

When Phil Voorhees (bass) and Jack Kane (drums) decided to pull a runner, they didn’t expect that the one to come after them would be Winchester 7 (vocals, ukulele).  None of them imagined that when their paths finally crossed, a few bass notes and halting drum beat would be met with a rocking ukulele reply, vocal harmony, and…music.

Together, Winchester 7 & the Runners, have since found that a forgotten world, beyond the dome welcomes their music and films even as their friendship grows.

Out of Atlanta, Georgia-based (home to Winchester 7), Sanctuary Studio; though runners, Voorhees now resides in Amsterdam and Kane is itinerant within the United Kingdom; the trio deliver their unique blend of indie garage rock with alternative, classic, and surf influences.

IndieX Music: Winchester 7 and the Runners - Argos Holiday 

One of the first tracks that really caught my attention was "The Golden Age" 

This song starts with a cresending fuzzy electric guitar introduction that leads into the quiet but powerful halfharmonic vocals, the drums are simple but do the job of keeping the song in track. 

The electric guitar and bass work well together and the vocals remind me of very early pre2005 Arctic Monkeys songs. 

"When The World stops Spinning" feels like a Reytons track, also including the fuzzy rock sounds of "The golden age"…

WeJam - Hall of Fame: Interview 

Please introduce your band 

I'm Winchester 7 and am based out of Atlanta, GA. Our bassist, Phil Voorhees, resides in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and drummer, Jack Kane, is itinerant within the United Kingdom. We call our style indie ukulele rock as we're certainly indie; I play an electric ukulele, and we're much more of a rock band than the ukulele bit would seem to imply.
