We Are The Willows

The idea of a concept album is not anything new.

But the concept behind We Are The Willows new album, Picture (Portrait) is an awesome one.

Each song is inspired by a long series of love letters written between front man Peter Miller's grandparents while his grandfather was away in World War II. He pulls from those letters for the lyrics of each song.

The songs are dense with layers and emotion.
