Listen to We May Never Grow Old (ft. PHOX)

We Are The Willows are an orchestral indie rock band based out of South Minneapolis. The 6-piece ensemble features songwriter/frontman Peter 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). We Are The Willows craft dynamic, intimate songs with instruments and voices combining to create energetic rhythms and intricate melodies. Their recent release, Picture (Portrait) was released in two parts on The Homestead Records and contains heartfelt arrangements that evoke shared nostalgic feelings of love and loss.

"The bold, orchestral proportions of these often euphoric songs do justice to their grand themes. Records like this one don’t come around very often...it’s a masterful exercise in orchestral folk pop." - BBC

"Throughout the musical adaptation of the letters comes a sense of quiet romance that can warm even my cold dead heart..."- Noisey
