Fox Tucson Theatre is pleased to welcome The Willis Clan to Tucson!
Featured on the 2014 season of NBC’s America’s Got Talent, “this gifted family of musicians, dancers, and writers are all true artists merging their love of multiple music genres into one unique sound and an incredibly entertaining show!”
The family, hailing from just outside of Nashville, was thrust into the limelight after making it to the final rounds of America’s Got Talent. With a new TV show on TLC, an album release, and a busy tour schedule running strong, this year holds many promises for The Willis Clan.
Performing songs that they wrote and produced, you’ll enjoy a night of meaningful songs, striking harmonies, driving rhythms, and soaring anthems.
They proudly show their deep, colorful roots with the integration of ethnic instrumentation, creating a unique, exciting sound in contemporary circles. “We’ve been waiting a long time to release this music,” Jessica, the eldest at 23, explains, “but we always knew we were headed for this sound that would combine all of our musical loves into a new sort of genre in popular music.”
The band comprises of the oldest seven children ranging from ages 23 to 13: Jessica, 23, on fiddle and lead vocals, Jeremiah, 22, on acoustic and electric guitars and uilleann pipes, Jennifer, 20, on accordion and mandolin, Jeanette, 19, on whistle and dobro, Jackson, 16, on drums and banjo, Jedidiah, 15, on bass, and Jasmine, 13, on keys. Mother, Brenda, joins periodically during live performances and Dad runs their live sound at the gigs as well as produces in the studio. All primarily self-taught, the children learned to play from an early age and began composing and writing soon after.
