Willow Waters & the Earth Tones present tapestry of sound with “The Friction I Demand”

Willow Waters is a multi-instrumentalist from Minneapolis who leads the band the Earth Tones – a rotating cast of players that span brass, wind, and string instruments. Their rich and eclectic sound is found on every track of the new record “The Friction I Demand”. Waters joins Will Moore on the Scenic Route to talk about the album’s themes grief, loss, and experiencing transphobia. She says the record tells a story of moving through those heavy feelings in order to come back “with a sense of return and a sense of purpose”. You can listen to the whole interview below:
