World touring band Willet going separate ways

Calling It A Day

THE MARYLAND-based band of siblings, Willet, have announced they are going their separate ways. The group, who have released five albums and three EPs and have toured continually, wrote, "We never received an award for our music, or saw one of our songs hit radio charts, but at the end of the day, this band was never about us anyway. We always viewed ourselves as bridge-builders, and bridges are made to connect other people. We attempted to do this by funding, packaging and shipping one million meals to hungry children around the world while also seeing over 3,000 children sponsored at our tours. . .

"Individually all three of us excelled at the roles that we played in the band as well as in our personal businesses, and others started to take notice. Before too long we were all given individual opportunities that were much bigger than anything we had done collectively, while still accomplishing the same goals we had as a band. Jeremy started being asked to travel on major tours to share about child sponsorship and lead worship. Justin started being asked to travel on tours and international trips to document and support work being done by non-profit organizations. And Jordan started being asked to come on board as music director at a church in California as well as film and edit music videos for Christian artists. Over time it became clear that we needed to allow each other space to explore some of these other opportunities." CR
