WE ARE THE WILLOWS
Picture (Portrait) (3/25/16)
We Are The Willows’ orchestral indie-rock ensemble features Miller’s unique countertenor voice and guitar, supported by Jeremiah Satterthwaite (guitar/banjo), Leah Ottman (violin/voice/keys), Hilary James (cello/voice/keys), Travis Collins (bass), and Stephen Lindquist (drums/voice). Together they craft dynamic, intimate songs with instruments and voices combining to create energetic rhythms and intricate melodies. Their heartfelt arrangements evoke shared nostalgic feelings of love and loss.
In the year since the release of Picture (Portrait) Part 1, We Are The Willows have toured across North America, playing dates with the likes of Blitzen Trapper, PHOX and S. Carey. The band have appeared at music festivals including Treefort and SXSW 2015 and 2016, where they performed on multiple showcases. Past efforts from We Are The Willows have received kind words and attention from the likes of Magnet Magazine, local NPR affiliate 89.3 The Current, Minneapolis City Pages, Daytrotter, and Paste Magazine, who named them a Minnesota band to watch.
