The Weeping Willows

 

“The writer who refuses to explore the darker reaches of the heart will never be able to write convincingly about the wonder, magic and joy of love.”

— Nick Cave

These words are particularly apt when applied to The Weeping Willows’ second album, Before Darkness Comes A-Callin’. Recorded in Los Angeles with multiple Grammy winner, Ryan Freeland and a small cast of players hand-picked to leave all the right gaps and spaces, this record should be received as a mature, melancholic sequel to their debut. But listen a little harder and you’ll hear that the record is filled with that all of that wonder, magic and joy of which Nick Cave speaks.

"With Before Darkness Comes A Callin’, The Weeping Willows have delivered a world class Americana album ingrained with integrity and a good tip of the hat to the traditional elements of the genre. If this is the current quality of Americana music in Australia, we’re in good hands..."

"This is music that mixes songwriting, storytelling, virtuosic playing and the simple delight of two perfectly matched voices singing in harmony to excellent effect."
- Chris Familton, Post to Wire
