Austin Winkler grew up in Oklahoma, where he played in local cover bands before forming Hinder with Cody Hanson and Joe “Blower” Garvey in 2001. They released their debut EP entitled “Far From Close” in 2003, and two years later Hinder recorded their first studio album called “Extreme Behavior”. It reached the No. 6 position on the Billboard 200, No. 2 on Billboard Top Rock Albums, and No. 12 on Billboard Top Digital Albums, while it also achieved triple platinum status, making it the band’s best-selling album. The singles “Get Stoned”, “Lips of an Angel”, and “Better Than Me” were all well received and among the most popular from the release.
In 2008, Hinder released another album, “Take It to the Limit”, which peaked at No. 4 on the US Billboard 200, No. 3 on US Billboard Top Rock Albums, and No. 2 on US Billboard Top Hard Rock Albums.
However, it wasn’t as commercially successful as its predecessor, and failed to achieve platinum status. In 2010 the band recorded their fourth album, entitled “All American Nightmare”, which topped the US Billboard Alternative Albums chart, and reached No. 2 on US Billboard Hard Rock Albums, No. 3 on US Billboard Top Rock Albums, and No. 37 on US Billboard 200 charts, and sold over 35,000 copies during the first week of its release. Hinder’s last album came out in 2012 by the title “Welcome to the Freakshow”, and peaked at No. 3 on US Top Hard Rock Albums, No. 8 on US Top Alternative Album, and No. 65 on US Billboard 200 charts. The band members then decided to part ways, so Winkler started his solo career.
In October 2014, Winkler signed a contract with Universal Music Group as a solo artist, and his debut album “Love Sick Radio” came out in April 2016. Austin subsequently performed live on tour across the US, including the Whiskey A-Go-Go in Hollywood, California, and clubs in Texas and Nashville, Tennessee.
