She’s no stranger to heavy music, but that darkness is allowing WILLOW to explore other sides of herself as well.”
She has also been nominated for two MTV Video Music Awards where she’ll face herself in the Alternative Category, scoring nominations for her single ‘G R O W’ with Avril Lavigne, and Machine Gun Kelly’s ‘Emo Girl’ featuring WILLOW.
WILLOW’s 2021 album, lately I feel EVERYTHING, showcased her pop-punk sound and featured heavy hitters such as Travis Barker, Avril Lavigne and more. Since its release, l.i.f.E has amassed 400 million global streams. WILLOW was nominated for ‘Best New Alternative Artist’ at the 2022 iHeartRadio Music Awards, and was named Billboard’s Greatest Pop Stars of 2021: Comeback Artist of the Year.
The album features the platinum-certified single, ‘t r a n s p a r e n t s o u l feat. Travis Barker’, netting over 300 million global streams to date. “Easily the best and most assured music of her career so far,” said The New Yorker. “The album is the first to maximize her talents, externalizing the pent-up, dialled-up angst of her adolescence.”
WILLOW will be performing in the UK at Reading & Leeds Festival and is currently on an extensive tour of the US with Machine Gun Kelly.
