An alt-rock band pulling from contemporary alternative and some early 2010s, Willy Nilly's influences don't just end there. Members Owen Fullerton on lead vocals, Max Tinline on lead guitar, Josiah Ascough on bass, and Devin Pierce on drums seemingly find endless opportunities to inject a bit of jazz, classic rock, and folk elements into their music at every turn as well. It's the balance they strike between punchy carefree tunes and methodical writing that makes this band so original. Max and Josiah are also members of Hinterwood, another great local alt-rock group with a stronger focus on elements of folk.
Willy Nilly's combination of sounds always seems to invoke a sense of nostalgia and wanderlust. Their live sets are electrifying on the account of each member's unending commitment to their craft and their passionate musical delivery.
