The Willing continue to write and produce great original music in the Melodic Rock, Adult Alternative / Americana  arena.  They are pleasing to an eclectic variety of  musical tastes.  The Willing’s first three albums, “Unfinished Business”,  “Right Direction”, and "e•motion²" as well as four singles to their credit “If I Needed Someone (Beatles cover”) “Ancient Astronauts,” “Angels Sing (of Christmas”), and “Wonderful Life”, are recommended.


This Chicagoland quintet played locally in the 70’s under the name Ultima Thule.

Moving to a 14 room Victorian in Milwaukee, they lived, rehearsed, wrote, took on a booking agency and toured the Midwest, covering groups like The Beatles, Eagles, Pink Floyd and CSNY.  They have since all played solo, and with different bands, including two national recording contracts with CBS records (The Boyzz / The B'zz), and surfaced again in 2008, all members intact, as The Willing.


With the bands 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.  You are invited on an emotional rollercoaster that is The Willing. New album to be released late 2020.


Exciting new CD " e•motion²  " released May 2018!
