Originally from Edmonton, The Willows, are making a name for themselves as a dynamic, close-harmony vocal jazz trio with Krista Deady as contralto, Andrea Gregorio as soprano and Lauren Pedersen as mezzosoprano.
The group released their debut album, “Tea for Three” in 2017 – a potent brew of caffeinated jazz and mellow, chamomile-infused balladry. The album debuted at #2 on both the iTunes Canada Jazz chart and Soundscan Canada Jazz chart and hit #6 on national campus radio jazz charts. “This is Christmas”, their EP continues to be featured in multiple Hallmark made-for-tv-movies.
The group has toured extensively across Canada, from BC to Quebec and recently travelled to Russia to perform 3 shows with Igor Butman and the Moscow Jazz Orchestra as part of the 2018 International Music Humour Festival.
The signature nostalgic charm and refreshing harmonies of these sophisticated songstresses transport audiences to a quainter yet adventurous time in music.
