We Are The Willows: A Collection Of Sounds And Something Like The Plague

Peter Miller, a Minneapolis based singer/songwriter, is the sole member of We Are The Willows. He embarked on a musical journey after he graduated. He settled for a loose concept using the sounds of the city, creating "cityscapes" that sound otherworldly and down-home at the same time.

With his countertenor adding a sense of loneliness to the sounds he recoded using a simple pocket recorder, his folkie musings are dreamlike. Using guitar plucking and the occasional ukulele strum A Collection Of Sounds And Something Like The Plague is an album that demands complete attention - a whisper making demands to listen to every twist and turn.
