With the success of ‘Christmas With You’ charting at #3 on the Hot New Releases in the UK, The Willing continue to write and produce great original music in the Adult Alternative, Americana genre, and appeal to a large variety of musical tastes, including Melodic Rock. ‘Full Circle’ is the band’s fourth album released March 2021. The Willing’s Catalog includes their first three albums ‘Unfinished Business’, ‘Right Direction’, ’e•motion²’, and seven singles, 'Christmas With You', ‘Ancient Astronauts’, ‘Angels Sing (of Christmas)’, ‘Wonderful Life’, and covers of ‘If I Needed Someone’, 'I'll Be Back' by The Beatles and ‘My Back Pages’ by Bob Dylan. The Willing have fourteen supporting videos. The entire Willing catalog is a great listen and Rave Song Records is happy to have them.
This Chicagoland quintet played the Midwest in the 1970’s under the name ‘Ultima Thule.’
After moving to a 14 room Victorian in Milwaukee, they lived, rehearsed, wrote, took on a booking agency and toured the heartland. They covered groups like The Beatles, Eagles, Pink Floyd and CSNY. They have since all played solo, and with different bands, including two international recording contracts with CBS records (The Boyzz / The B'zz), and surfaced again in 2008, all members intact, as The Willing.
This band can sing! With their lyrical insight and beautiful harmonies, we can only imagine you will find something you like. All 5 members are singer/songwriters, guaranteeing there is always a new path to follow. The Willing are currently working on their fifth album. You are invited on an emotional rollercoaster that is The Willing.
