Martin 'Espresso Guitar' Winch Passes Away
Martin was an esteemed guitar player, adept at sight reading and skilled in rock and jazz. As well as having a great on-stage presence, his work has been audible in many TV and radio commercials over the years - Toyota's Welcome To My World TV campaign being but one of them.
He also toured with various musicals during his career, tutored in jazz guitar at the University of Auckland School of Music and played a part in helping artists create their albums.
Martin Winch was 62.
We at Amplifier are saddened by Martin's passing, having enjoyed knowing him over the years and would like to express our sympathies to his family, friends and bandmates.
