Those Willows - Existential Folks - 2013

Those Willows are Portland, Oregon-based and Detroit, Michigan-bred duo, Jack Wells and Mel Tarter. The vocally driven pair combined forces in 2007 to create a sound of their own.

With haunting harmonies and memorable melodies their high-energy performances incorporate indie, folk, jazz, pop and soul to entertain audiences of all ages and inclinations. Those Willows released their first full-length album, Rivertown, to much acclaim in February 2012 and their new 4 song EP, “Existential Folks,” will be released on October 15, 2013.
