SAN FRANCISCO - June 6, 2014 - PRLog -- Those Willows will be bringing their harmony driven indie-folk vibes to Amnesia (San Francisco, CA) on June 12, 2014 at 8:00pm touring in support of their latest EP, Existential Folks. The EP combines a mixture of jazz, pop, indie and soul with a folky mist. Existential Folks is a melting pot of music eras, styles and beats.  Those Willows are pleased to share the stage with Callow (SF), Decker (AZ), and- Gospel Flats (SF).

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.  The pair’s songs have been heard on television shows in the United States and Europe, including: The UK’s “Skins,” “Lying Games” (ABC Family), and reality shows on MTV, VH-1 and Bravo. The band has performed across Michigan at festivals such as Detroit’s Motown Winter Blast and Royal Oak’s Arts, Beats and Eats as well as Portland, Oregon venues like The Doug Fir and Mississippi Studios.   The West Coast duo has also created a buzz as Deli Magazine's August 2013 Artist of the Month not only for Portland, but in the national edition as well.

     “When Those Willows start dancing in your speakers for the first time, you may have a twinge of nostalgia and warm recalling of something you can't quite put your finger on. Perhaps it is the perfect harmonies that Wells and Tarter slide in and out of so effortlessly you think of the great harmonic groups from years gone by, and I mean Simon and Garfunkel great.”   Joy Pearson – The Deli magazine

      “Existential Folks is a delicately pretty recording, with Wells and Tarter entwining their voices in such a way that it's difficult to tell who's singing what. Feather-soft percussion, tasteful guitars, and subtle keyboards bring these songs into clear definition, but it's the duo's exquisite, almost eerie vocal blend that sets them apart.” - Portland Mercury

Those Willows will be on tour from this June 8th - June 22nd throughout California and are available and welcome the opportunity for phone interviews or live radio broadcasts while on tour.  Please contact Melissa Tarter to set up a time that is convenient at 586.909.4712 or by email thosewillows@gmail.com
