LA-Based Indie Trio Willodean to Release “Fires, Cars, and Autumn Stars” on May 19, the 2nd of 4 Releases in 2017

Willodean is back with the second of four EP releases in 2017, Fires, Cars, and Autumn Stars out May 19th on Bigger Better More Records, a record label run by the band’s very own producer/bass player Eric Holden. While their first EP, Awesome Life Decisions: Side One showcased the band’s appreciation for pop melodies and guitar muscle, Fires, Cars, and Autumn Stars takes a modern Americana-tinged approach to ballads.

With a unique sound that echoes the melodic smarts of Sufjan Stevens and packs the instrumental punch of a band like Wilco, Willodean combines indie-rock, power-pop, and American roots music with beautiful arrangements and crystalline studio sound.

Each of the band’s members has a diverse musical background: the southern roots of front man Abbie Huxley, the smart, McCartney-esque songwriting of Randy Wooten, and the indie rock edge of producer/bass player Eric Holden.

Willodean rose from the ashes of The Bloody Lovelies, Holden and Wooten’s previous band and their record label, Cheap Lullaby Records, which released over 30 records for artists such as The BellRays, Joan As Police Woman, Ivan & Alyosha, Teitur, and David Mead. Today, the two blend their modern DIY aesthetic and sharp, lyric-based songwriting with Huxley’s Tennessee grit to form Willodean.
