"Drifting, ascending guitar figures formed from the elemental tones of wood and wire that sing out acoustic music" is how North Florida's FOLIO Magazine describes the unique sounds of Ace Winn. Creating acoustic music for as long as he can remember, Ace made his solo debut more than fifteen years ago. Since then, loyal fans have been enjoying his captivating performances in coffeehouses and clubs throughout Florida. In the 80s and early 90s, before performing solo, Ace was front man for the psychedelic funk rock band, Piewackit. Deciding move in a different direction, he opted for the alternative - thoughtful lyrics over the unbelievably full sound of his acoustic guitar. Influenced by such performers as Sting, Cat Stevens and Kenny Loggins, Ace's inspired, original compositions call upon virtually every genre of music, including rock, folk, reggae, gospel, jazz and funk. The Florida Times Union wrote, "The basics. An acoustic guitar, naked lyrics and a voice that climbs the scales in magnificent style, nothing shy about it, stretching syllables out as if each word is being torn from him". The songs speak of everyday life; experiences of a musician raised in a southern town. Winn’s superb songwriting skills are clearly evident in his music. He was featured on a 1993 album of local acoustic musicians titled "The Kitchen Sessions" and a similar follow-up album titled "Mystery Date" which was released in November 1995. His own acoustic albums titled "25 years and a Day", "Half Way There" and "Music For The Soul" were released and immediately sold out. In 1997.
