An act that needs no introduction to the Levity tribe, Willow Hill Music returns to Indiana for the concert event of the century. Like the event on FB to get updates... It remains to be seen whether this will be indoors or outdoors. Can't you just picture sitting around a camp fire, in a flannel, listening to killer live music?? Of course, indoors we get comfy and have so much togetherness. I don't know... it's too soon to call.

Willow Hill is a burst of color on the canvas of modern country music. The husband and wife duo of Alexandra & C.T. Fields has earned a loyal fan base across the entire United States with Alexandra’s iconic soulful voice and C.T.’s infectious guitar riffs. Having written songs together for over 12 years, the two enjoyed some national success in their rock group Lovebettie with a Rolling Stone “Band to Watch” mention, and over 200 dates per year of touring. The band was also a regular name at major festivals like Sturgis, Rocklahoma, and Summerfest – where they supported the legendary Pat Benatar. During that time the couple began writing songs outside of the realm of rock and roll, and finally found where their hearts felt at home… in country music.
While admiring the authentic songwriting of country radio that they were raised on, and attending festivals like Stage Coach Music Festival and Delaware’s Junction Festival, Alexandra & C.T. penned the first songs that would be the foundation for Willow Hill, and recorded their debut EP, Highway One. Recorded in Nashville’s historic Benchmark studios, Highway One is produced by Zach Abend with the assistance of Executive Producer Jeff Cohen of As You Wish Music, who’s credits include songs with Sugarland, Big & Rich, and The Band Perry. The Ep has immediately gained steam with some of the industry’s biggest tastemakers, and is set to make a splash on mainstream country radio.
“Rustic rock with a blend of energy and heart”
Born and raised in Northeastern PA, Chris began playing music initially as a drummer, he learned his craft on Friday and Saturday nights in the hard nosed, coal region pubs scattered throughout once vibrant towns, abandoned anthracite breakers haunting their outskirts. The bar stools were mostly occupied by tough, working class people, known for their blunt honesty but good intent. It’s that “hardness with a big heart” attitude that Chris would later carry into his songwriting…
