Band Biography:

Those Willows are a 5 piece Indie band based out of Portland, Oregon with harmony-driven, pop-centric song-writing that keeps you moving every step of the way.  In their twelve years of making music together, lead singers Jack Wells and Mel Tarter have had four album releases, multiple U.S. tours, and over 100 commercially licensed syncs appearing on MTVVH1 and more.

In 2018 Those Willows signed to ROLA Music (Booking) and completed a full-scale European Tour. Since returning home, they have been working in a cabin on the base of Mt. Adams, writing and recording a fresh Motown infused, indie-rock set.

 

In April 2019, Those Willows celebrated the release of their single, Elowah, alongside an animated music video by director Trevor Wiggins at esteemed Portland music venue, Mississippi Studios.

 

In September 2019, Those Willows released their newest song, My Landline, which was the catalyst for a month-long tour of the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
