If You Will
If You Will
"Stefan has a song on that album about dealing with his mom's stroke, Aaron has one about personal rebirth, and I have a few about relationship struggles and trying to find self-purpose" For a band made up of high school students, they certainly achieved impressive openness all the while maintaining the versatility in style that they've become known for. For their 2009 EP Above the Earth, If You Will has upheld their outgoing philosophy while maturing exponentially in musicianship. The band relies on both heavy rock and blues-funk to question personal motive, reprimand racism, and denounce child abuse to name a few. The songs dont settle for easy listening alone, but instead encourage deep thought and emotional release. Put this kind of passion and expertise on stage, and If You Will offers a live performance to behold. Complete with dual lead-singers and thrilling instrumentals, the band produces a memorable show unparalleled by most young trios.
"The people that come to these shows are going through the same things we did when we wrote our songs," guitarist Stefan Swanson observes. "We just want to give them a half hour away from it."
