Hailing from Edmonton, Alberta, the tri-hair coloured trio met as young dance students. Together, they not only nurtured an appreciation for the performing arts, but became the closest of companions. Their passion for the performing arts eventually brought them across the country to Ryerson University in Toronto to complete their Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A) degrees in dance. Little did they know, they’d soon discover that their talents would extend beyond dancing.

The girls had no idea harmonizing was a skill until the positive feedback from their peers gave them the push they needed to break out into Toronto’s music scene as a bona fide trio act called The Willows. Soon The Willows were dazzling crowds with their unique set list, incorporating synchronized dance steps to add an element of theatricality that reminds audiences of years gone by, with a modern touch. From those first few open mic opportunities to headlining their own shows at venues across the country like Koerner Hall, Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, Danforth Music Hall, The Bassment, and Blue Chair Café, The Willows have combined their dance and classical music training to become Canada’s newest entertainment delight.
