Profile
White Willow is a Norwegian art rock band, mixing elements of orchestral pop, 70s progressive rock, jazz-rock, and even electronic elements. The band was formed in 1993 by Jacob Holm-Lupo (guitar), Jan Tariq Rahman (keyboards), Audun Kjus (flute), Sara Trondal (vocals), Peter Albers (bass), and Henning Eidem (drums). Since that time, membership has been through many changes, with Holm-Lupo remaining constant: Ellen Andrea Wang (of Pixel, bass), Mattias Olsson (of Änglagård, drums), Sylvia Erichsen (vocals), Lars Fredrik Frøislie (of Wobbler, keyboards), and many more.
