With psychedelic soundscapes, a touch of indie, alternative blues and surfer rock, WILLIS wears authenticity fastened on to their sleeves. For them, it’s not about imitation, but instead they seek to illicit pure and honest emotion to the highest degree. Above all, WILLIS creates music not just for aural enjoyment, but to also deeply resonate and connect with.

Consisting of Murphy Billings (Bass & Vocals), Glenn O'Steen (Drums), Will O'Steen (Synths), Edward Armstead (Guitar), and Trey Murphy (Guitar), the five members have combined their musical talents to create their brand of indie rock. Having all attended the same school in their hometown, they formed as a band in 2016 and the rest was history. They quickly mustered up their first successful track 'Cydd' during their very first jam session.

As one of the most-streamed independent bands of the last 15 years from their hometown of Florence, Alabama, WILLIS has gained the attention of music lovers worldwide while completely iterating on a new muscle shoals sound. Now based in Nashville, they have amassed over 4 million Spotify streams on their hit single ‘I Think I Like When It Rains’. Additionally, WILLIS secured a position on the top '25 Essential Alabama Musicians To Know for 2018' by al.com.

After the success of their EP Locals 3 in 2019, the band made a return at the end of 2020 to release their latest single, “CranMango”. Read more about Robin Willis on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
