We Are the Willows

"Come back to us, in Minneapolis" and "Let's drink some beer on the kitchen floor"

Some great moments from We Are the Willow's song "A Funeral Dressed as a Birthday"
I will, at random, belt these lines out. And the moment I graduate, I fully intend to drink some beers on the kitchen floor. 

This man, Peter Miller, looks as though he should have a deep, manlike voice, but no...not at all. His childlike voice takes some getting used to (or at least it did for me), but once you've come to terms with it, it only adds to his music. He was even named the Minneapolis Best Male Vocalist in 2010 by City Pages with that unique voice of his! So, somebody other than me must have taken a liking to his voice as well.

If nothing else, you can download his Daytrotter session (for free!) and give him a try.

I also recommend that you read his tour blog on City Pages. I think this guy is hilarious. So much so, that when I found his tour blog, I spent an hour or more going through and reading all of them. Maybe not the best use of my time but definitely an entertaining use of my time.

For those of you in the Twin Cities, he will be performing at The Beat Coffeeshop on April 14th at 7pm ($10 recommended donation for a fundraiser) and at the 331 Club on April 21st at 10pm (no cover). Maybe see you at one of these shows?

Anywho, you should let me know what you think.

  1. Funny, I spent a ton of time with Peter when he went to Bethel for his degree. I remember sitting in his room with his roommates just talking about doing crazy stuff. Walking naked in the woods or taking the sewers to Target. Its been quite a while since. Nice post.
