J. Loren Wince

Musical Artist

J. Loren Wince is the frontman of art rock band HURT. He was born in Baltimore, Maryland on August 25, 1981. Soon moving to Virginia, he lived in Halifax, Virginia and later relocated to Culpeper, enrolling at Germanna Community College at the age of 14. His parents exposed him to gospel and classical music, and rock and roll was banned from the household. Wince studied to be a classical violinist and began playing at the age of eight. His first composition was a march written for brass and strings inspired by the poem "Charge Of the Light Brigade," which he wrote when he was 10. He then wrote the song "Cold Inside" at the age of 13. His first large public show was at 12 as a violinist accompanying a contemporary band. Wince cites Antonio Vivaldi as his idol and greatest influence, but also cites Schubert, Mendelssohn, Beethoven, Bach, Verdi, Handel, both Haydns, Grieg, Puccini, Tchaikovsky, Ravel and others as influences in his music. Rock music was "the only feasible method of getting honest compositions to the public without being an "A" list writer" according to J.  ( Wikipedia article )
