We Are The Willows:

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 heartfelt arrangements evoke shared nostalgic feelings of love and loss.

In November of 2014, the band released their second full-length album, Picture (Portrait) pt. I, based off of 350 letters written by Peter’s grandfather to his grandmother while he was stationed in the Southwest Pacific during World War II. Their correspondence inspired Peter to explore themes of family, separation, life, death, and identity in a time of national and personal crisis. The songs communicate complex ideas delivered with pop-sensible charm.

In April of 2016, the band is celebrating the conclusion of Picture (Portrait) with part II, an introspective, and more sonically diverse response to Picture (Portrait) Pt. I.

We Are The Willows have received kind words from NPR, the BBC, Noisey, PASTE Magazine, Daytrotter, Magnet Magazine, 89.3 The Current, City Pages, and VitaMN.
