Willowen are a trio from Bournemouth who have pioneered the exciting genre of Indie-Quirk Folk. Fusing three part harmonies, indie rock ethics and a folky twist, the band has been described as a quirky mixture of folk and Fleetwood Mac. They have performed at Isle of Wight Festival, Larmer Tree Festival and Purbeck Folk Festival in recent years, as well as sharing the stage with the likes of KT Tunstall, Paul Heaton (The Beautiful South/Housemartins), We Were Evergreen and 3 Daft Monkeys to name a few.
The key to Willowen’s sound is simple. One minute, they’ll whisk you away to chill on a beach at sunset; the next, you’ll dance to them like there’s no tomorrow. The fusion of folk, acoustic and surf elements gives this band an unusual and highly original versatility that is appealing to a wide audience.
After releasing their acclaimed self-titled debut album in December 2013, the band are going from strength to strength after a highly successful album launch and release tour.
After releasing a new single entitled ‘Blue Car’ at the end of 2014, the band are now writing the follow up to their debut album.
