We Are The Willows is 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.
Their new album Picture (Portrait) Part 2 is based on a series of letters written by Miller’s grandfather during WWII. We had a chance to cover their CD release at the Icehouse in April and enjoyed it quite a bit. They will be at the Turf Club on 7/23. Tickets are still available HERE.
