The Willow & The Builder grew from the roots of its title. Over several windy winter weeks, Richard Miron and Adrian Simon set about crafting a collection of songs and stories about growth, sorrow, trees, and the determination to create happiness from the world that surrounds them. The result is an 8-song debut, a sprightly exploration and reflective meditation on the themes and images conjured by the phrase "The Willow & The Builder."
