Between Abbygail Mae and Dillan Witherow, they have enough vocal power to light the Western Seaboard, and enough love to feed it. They are the acoustic duet Witherow.
Born and raised in the northwestern corner of the Continental United States, Abby Mae and Dillan Witherow grew up on logging roads and barn dance floors of the Olympic Peninsula, where folk music is king.
When the hometown sweethearts started performing together in 2012 it was only natural that dynamic harmonies should be the center of their sound. Heavily influenced by pop and rock music, Witherow's songs push beyond the bounds of folk music, but the focus sticks to their roots: one guitar and two passionate voices.
Today, Witherow performs all over the US, for venues, festivals, concert series and house concerts. They've played with some truly amazing artists and have been featured on PBS, several newspapers and local radio stations. They are currently recording their second record, which will release early Spring 2017.
Artists we've played with:
Mike Frazier | Swiss Army | David Isaac Rivers | Rabbit Wilde | David Ryan-Harris | David Jacobs-Strain | Black Heart Honeymoon | Good Machine | Kite Repair | David Mayfield Parade | Many more...
"Seeing Abby and Dillan together is quite beautiful, and when listening to them you can’t help but think about what a better life might be. A life that is slower, where pictures are brighter and the best moments and memories last longer."
-Pat Corcorran, Owner of ESO Strap
"Witherow is something to behold. The guitar prowess that is shown in this group was really surprising the first time we had them here. And the vocals are insane...Do not make the all too common mistake of missing the openers this Friday night. They are way too good for that."
-James Hardesty, Owner of the Green Frog
"Witherow is creating music with a unique sound that the world needs to hear."
- Marcel Fernandez, Two time Grammy Nominee
"From the minute Dillan and Abby (Witherow) stepped into my home and played for me, I knew I was witnessing something very special. They possess a combination of beautiful vocal harmonies and exquisite guitar work. Their new album, (Standing on Shoulders) is a masterpiece."
- Robert Lang, Owner of Robert Lang Studios
"Witherow’s music needs to be heard–
anyone with that much talent, that much passion, who can ignite such beauty, should be heard by everyone."
- Adrienne Pollock, Seattle Music Critic and Founder of Reaching Notoriety
"...Their original songs are powerful, little sonic symphonies..."
