Winton began studying piano as a young boy while living in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Much of his youth was spent traveling through Latin America and the musical styles of those countries are at the core of his musical personality.
He has performed throughout the US, Canada, and China in a wide range of styles including Americana/folk music, Afro-Cuban jazz, Salsa, Bossa Nova and traditional jazz.
Winton performs regularly around Louisville, KY, with the Afro-Cuban band Hermanos, Brazilian jazz group Hora Certa, and the Salsa dance band Milenio. He can also be heard performing more traditional jazz in a variety of settings throughout the Louisville area.
Winton Reynolds has a doctoral degree in Composition and a masters degree in Jazz Studies, both from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music in Bloomington, IN.
