The Wind and the Willows' roots lie in the heart of Bozeman, MT. Growing up in the town of Evergreen, Colorado, lead singers Ryen Dalvit and Maren Stubenvoll started writing music in high school, and haven't stopped playing since. From writing tunes in caves and on top of mountains to performing in taprooms, hot springs, and small music festivals, these once upon a time classmates became a songwriting duo joined by some of Bozeman’s most unique and talented musicians. Their original and whimsical harmonies are blended with the talents of banjo player Tommy Diestel, African drummer Sarah Budeski, vocalist and ukulele player Berette McNaught, fiddle player Silas Rea, standup bassist Ryan, and trumpet player Nick Popiel.
Excited to have released their first album, "Bloom and Fade," they're happy to have brought a distinct sound to Montana blending brass, strings, and triple harmonies with original music. The Wind and the Willows bring a fresh taste of folk to listeners everywhere and thank you for listening.
