Whalen and the Willows are Joshua Whalen (Vocals/Guitar), Victoria Torkelson (Violin/Vocals), Trevor Bordelon (Bass), Nick Braaten (Guitar), and Jessica Williams (vocals). With a focus on lyrics, Joshua writes tales pulled from life experience and observation. Pain, suffering, hope, and love are common motives striking a balance between the joys and struggles of life. The band uses layers of melody, rhythm, and harmony to conjure an experience that is truly greater than the sum of its parts. Whalen & the Willows are a master class on soul and authenticity.
