The darlings of San Francisco’s open mic scene, sisters Amanda and Julianna Salguero make up the twin chambers of King Willow’s wistfully beating heart. They got their start in Manhattan venues like Sidewalk Cafe, Postcrypt, Cafe Vivaldi, and The Bitter End.
With a sound some have likened to The Head and the Heart and First Aid Kit, their original music shows a range from slower huskier numbers to upbeat and clever pop anthems. Connecticut natives, these two bicoastal babes bring humor and grace to indie pop.Songwriter Julianna’s wry lyrics and self-deprecating stage presence ground you in the rush of her voice’s toe-curling clarity.
Guitarist Amanda’s signature smoky harmonies round out their warm-honey sound, bringing just the right touch of retro.Whether it’s just this dynamic duo or accompanied by their full band’s compliment of drums, mandolin, piano and the occasional glint of violin, these satiny sirens have made their mark on the Bay Area music scene, from The Hotel Utah to Bazaar Cafe and the Mission’s Lost Church.The Salguero sisters lure you in with their vulnerability, sultry harmonies, and glossy nostalgic finish. Self-effacing and warm, their sound invites you in on all of life's best jokes
