Dragonfly Sky release Willow Tree

Dragon Sky Release Willow Tree| Friday 9th July 2021 |A captivating song about coming to terms with a near-death experience

‘Willow Tree’ is a song that explores a near-death experience, after lead singer, Amy Whiter, contracted meningitis and was seriously ill and left fighting for life in hospital.

“This experience happened in 2011 and changed my outlook forever” says Amy Whiter, “Although obviously a very frightening experience, it left me with a renewed and profound sense of love for family and friends, and a greater appreciation for life. 

The song is really an exploration of being in this strange place somewhere between life and death, and about coming to terms with the experience. The Willow Tree is for me a symbol of the bridge between life and death. Would I meet my loved ones in this life or the next?”.  

With heartfelt vocals, soaring strings, and a driving rhythm, ‘Willow Tree’ pulls you in and entrances you. Written by duo Dragonfly Sky – composed of Amy Whiter (lead vocals) and Chris Lee-Delisle (Guitar and vocals), the track also features the talents of violinist Phil Beer (Show of Hands), Cellist David Floer and pianist Rob Harvey.
