" Recorded live, Willow's self-titled debut CD is a soul-cleansing plunge into dark, dynamic melodies and intriguing lyrics delivered by a deep, rich voice..."

" Sometimes dark, often subdued, always intimate, there is a simplicity to her music
that grabs you in seconds. "
It was the early autumn in 1992. Living in a run-down studio apartment inPortland, with a cheap pawn-shop gutiar, a three chord repertoir and a lot of time to herself, Willow began writing songs. With naive enthusiasm, she took her music from the acoustics of her kitchen to the streets of Portland's Saturday Market. Three days later, accompanied by the harmonies of a friend, she performed her first show at the Satyricon under the name Barefoot and Flowers.
As Willow's writing and guitar playing matured, the mid-ninties found her in Seattle. From the open-mic scene she quickly made her way to strong performances at the OK Hotel, Weathered Wall, Moe, the Fenix Underground, Tractor tavern etc. Willow was also featured on 'Souls of the Sound' ( under Barefoot and Flowers ), a sampler CD of 12 of Seattle's finest female singer-songwriters, featuring her song 'Growing Grey' (1995).
In late summer of '98, Willow's then band released a well received six-song EP; Willow and her current band have just finished recording her sophomore CD at Studio Litho with Producer Tucker Martine. The awaited release will be April 19th 2001!
As a solo performer, Willow released a self-titled, debut solo acoustic CD in 1999. The ten compositions, recorded live at the Acoustic Camber Studio, embody the intimacy and passion audiences experience with Willow's live performances.
