A Band of Texas Siblings ‘Inspire Happy’ with New Self-Titled Album: Willow City

By  | 

Texas Hill Country siblings Beecher, Ezra, Liza, and Asa Proch are preparing to launch the debut of their self-titled album, “Willow City.” The album release party is set for Friday, June 29, 7 p.m. at Marktplatz in Fredericksburg, Texas. Join these young Texas musicians in celebrating their new music.

Willow City is an interesting name for this talented up and coming group who have performed their bluegrass and Americana sound in iconic entertainment venues such as Luckenbach, Albert Texas Dance Hall, and Threadgill’s. “We’ve opened for Ellie Holcomb, Asleep at the Wheel, Casey Donahew, and Josh Wilson, to name a few,” they shared on their website. The group gives an endearing tidbit about their upcoming album and release party on their YouTube channel video below. You can also listen to some of their other musical covers, studio time, and original music.

Having grown up in the tiny Texas town of Willow City, nonexistent on a map, the group branded themselves and their new music with a name that represents what they stand for. “On a frosty morning in Nashville, Tennessee, we were sitting down to coffee with a friend. As a passing comment, she mentioned: ‘Oh, Willow City, the place where your dreams took root.’ And that was it,” shares the band.

“It’s just a few miles from this little town that we have dreamed big dreams, worked hard, sweated, practiced, and created our music.” The band goes on to share that their purpose is to “inspire happy,” to create music the whole family will love. “They want to continue putting smiles on faces, hope in hearts, and making new friends as they ride this musical journey,” shared their website.

You can expect 10 tracks of upbeat and catchy melodies on “Willow City” that will have you rolling down the windows singing and dancing along to the tunes of this one big happy family. These siblings grew up listening to “Lyle Lovett, Wynton Marsalis, The Mavericks, Alison Krauss, The Beach Boys, The Mamas and the Papas, and a host of artists whose music was slowly laying a foundation for something down the road.” This, as they say, is their story so far…
