A Winter Downpour plays moody, introspective songs that explore surviving the beauties and disappointments of everyday life. Front man Alberto Serrano Rivera founded the band with an acoustic guitar and a handful of songs. The project grew to a full band, then unraveled, then reformed. The current lineup includes bassist Kevin Zak, drummer Ken Nyberg and guitar player Paul Connolly. Their album Vandrovic, I Need Help was released in 2012.
