We Are The Willows
We Are The Willows
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.

The band has recently recorded their second full-length album, Picture [Portrait], 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. His grandmother loves this album. You just might too.

We Are The Willows have received kind words from PASTE Magazine, Daytrotter, Magnet Magazine, 89.3 The Current, City Pages, and VitaMN. They continue to have fun playing their music throughout Minnesota, the Midwest, and the wide world beyond. They hope to be the first band to perform on the moon.

Mr. Jackson is synth funk and R&B music by Ethan Jackson from Madison, Wisconsin
"my two hands a synth and my voice"
"The Golden Hour Groove Session” is a synth-funk, r&b, and hip-hop expression that not only will lighten the mood, but also help listeners capture their very own golden hour. however, i feel as though all people have a golden hour in whatever they do in life – so this album seeks to enrich your soul in that very moment. Mind you, “The Golden Hour Groove Session” was not made for an audience that do not accept the wave of love, but encourages listeners to do so; because i know in time all listeners will find their golden hour with or without my artistic expression. Even so, the hope is to point you in the right direction. with that in thought, relax your mind and enjoy the ride. – Mr. Jackson
