Lush, kaleidoscopic indie pop from these local talents

Those Willows
Those Willows was forged in the melodic fires of the Motown jazz scene, and eventually, they followed their folk-infused hearts Westward to Portland, OR, where they received acclaim for their nostalgic melodies and soul-driven performances. The pairs' first full-length album, Rivertown, released in February 2012, gained national recognition with songs airing on ABC, MTV, VH-1, and Bravo. Since moving to the Pacific Northwest, they've recorded two E.P.s; Existential Folks (2013) and Three Books (2015) and have quickly become a local favorite as Deli Magazine's Artist of the Month (Portland, OR and National Editions) and featured artists on Tender Loving Empire's "Friends & Friends of Friends Compilation," alongside The Family Crest and Wampire. In 2014, they embarked on a West Coast tour and humbly accepted comparisons to Simon and Garfunkel, Fleet Foxes, and She & Him. They've recently expanded to a five piece band and look forward to getting back on the road to tour the midwest.

"…it's the duo's exquisite, almost eerie vocal blend that sets them apart." – Portland Mercury
