Bio

Melbourne’s very own Willow have established a sound for themselves that can be described as warm soul pop. Led by Kieran Daly (guitar) and Bianca Sciuto (vocals) Their sound is reminiscent of the music soulful divas made in the late 60′s and early 70′s mixed within range to Australia’s contemporary female singer songwriters. Vocal pop melodies shimmer through the sound of jangly guitars and expressive keys provided by one of Melbourne’s most talented backing bands. The release of Willow’s ‘No Sound’ already has taste makers singing the groups praise and with their debut show’s opening for Daniel Merriweather at the Corner Hotel, supporting Patrick James’ single launch tour and selling out their own single launch earlier in the year .. I’m sure you’ll be hearing a lot more from this group. Don’t miss out on seeing a show!

Stunner. Continuing the proud and strong soul tradition in Melbs, you guys have a slayer of a song here. Yes, I can hear the Amy but the richness and heart of this song supercedes comparison. A total winner.
