Digital Summer is a unmistakable modern rock band originating from Phoenix, Arizona. Made up of heavy/melodic guitars and raw emotional vocals, Digital Summer creates an edgy, powerful, yet soothing tone for a radio friendly world. Influenced by multiple music genres, Digital Summer is a rock band to the core, not a “trend” by any means.
Digital Summer has had 5 singles in rotational play on major market radio (KUPD, OCTANE, WGRD, WWBN, WIIL, WZBH, WXQR, KHTO, KRDJ, KTUX and more.), “Whatever it takes”, “Disconnect”, “Just Run”, “Hostage” and the current single “Forget You” have been among the top requested songs on each station. “Just Run” was #1 in rotation per research on 98Kupd for over seven weeks straight. “Forget You” is currently #43 and climbing Active Rock radio charts.
Aside from sharing the stage with bands like Alice in Chains, Godsmack, Deftones, Disturbed, Five Finger Death Punch, Theory of a Dead Man and many more, Digital Summer has also toured nationally with Sevendust, Drowning Pool, 10 Years and Saliva. While touring they received an overwhelming response and even out sold the headliner in merchandise on several occasions. Digital Summer has been featured in multiple publications and gained an enormous amount of press, including making the cover of the Phoenix New Times for not only their live show, but their noticeably insane work ethic.
Digital Summer is not your “typical” rock band by a long shot. Along with being professional musicians, the members manage to maintain additional professional careers. Front man Kyle Winterstein is currently a Firefighter/Paramedic/Technical Rescue Specialist. His brother and guitarist, Ian Winterstein (Sponsored by Shecter) is a Flight Medic on a helicopter. Guitarist Jon “Bubba” Stephenson is an accountant. Bassist Anthony “Guido” Hernandez (Sponsored by Spector) is finishing his business degree in marketing. Ben Anderson on drums is a studio engineer/drum instructor and is currently sponsored by Pearl and Vic Firth.
These additional careers are what drive the lyrical and emotional foundation of what Digital Summer’s music is about. From death and tragedy to passion and endurance, the songs on a Digital Summer album come from their real lives and their very own experiences.
