The daughter of a protestant preacher, Willow Scrivner exchanged one life on the road for another as a touring musician.
Seattle-based trio Willow & The Embers is nearing the end of its 16-show, 23-day "Daughter of a Preacher Man" tour through the Midwest. The tour is in conjunction with the trio's new album, "Radio Sky," released earlier this year, and stops off at many of the cities where Scrivner's father preached.
"Radio City" was inspired by Scrivner's childhood spent in the back of her family's station wagon and features the band's dark, "folk-noir" and "hush-pop" soundscape and Scrivner's crooning, introspective vocals.
Scrivner and The Embers — bassist Bob Congleton and guitarist Kevin Wood — perform at 9 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 19, at Liquid Assets Wine Bar, 96 N. Main St., Ashland.
The show is free.
