Winded started in Tallahassee, FL in 2016 as the solo project of Thrin Vianale in her dorm room at Florida State University. Winded recorded the LP “Schwartz Goes to Heaven” in winter of 2017 with Tallahassee recording artist David Settle. The album is being released via cassette the end of June 2018 by the New Orleans based record group Community Records. Following recording, winded turned full band in January of 2018 with the addition of her best friends Karl, Pat, and Grayson, who were also students studying film and English at FSU. The group is relocating to Brooklyn, NY in August! Winded has had the privilege to play with some incredible acts over the years such as Pile, Palehound, Dowsing, Jeff Rosenstock, Donovan Wolfington, Marissa Nadler, and many more. They are incredibly honored to be a part of FEST 17.
