Willow Steps

Willow Steps combines the folky introspective tunes of singer-songwriter Jesse Strickman (this is Jesse’s Bithday show!!) with the angelic harmonies of vocalist Leiya Mahoney. In less than two years since their formation, the Oakland based NeoFolk duo has performed up and down the West Coast, has interviewed on multiple radio stations, and has been written about twice in the Bay Area’s renowned music website, The Bay Bridged. Their simple songs of love and passion will warm your heart on even the coldest of winter nights.

Dylan Rodrigue writes emotional songs in a similar vein to songwriters such as Elliott Smith and Simon Joyner. A Dylan show is raw, striking, and brutally honest. Not to be missed.

Sie Sie Benhoff balances lyrics of heartbreak and remorse by adding a little comedy and a lot of rock-and-roll.
