Willoughby's debut album I Know What You're Up To is the product of Gus
Seyffert, a Los Angeles based musician who has performed around the world with
musicians such as Inara George, The Bird and The Bee, Sia, and Michael Andrews.
All songs on the album were performed and produced by Seyffert, with a few
friends stopping by to help along the way. The result is a delicate masterpiece
that was a lifelong dream fulfilled for Seyffert. "I had wanted to make my own
record for a number of years but was always working on other projects. Recording
the whole thing to tape was really important to me - I really wanted to capture
the organic, analog sound of all the great records I love - by people like Harry
Nilsson, Sparklehorse, The Zombies and Chet Baker."
Having trained on bass under the legendary Charlie Haden, Seyffert has
established himself as an in-demand sideman for some of the best producers in
the world, having worked recently with Jimmy Hogarth (Sia, Leona Naess), Joey
Waronker (Priscilla Ahn), Mickey Petralia (Flight of the Conchords), Michael
Andrews (Inara George, Walk Hard Soundtrack) and T-Bone Burnett (Across The
Seyffert has recently written with Priscilla Ahn for her debut album for Blue
Note Records and recently sang a duet with Inara George on the latest EP from
The Bird & The Bee while Willoughby are featured on the track "Not Enough" on
the new Junkie XL album.
Willoughby also recently produced five tracks on the forthcoming album from
recent Rilo Kiley tourmate Benji Hughes, including a track called "The Mummy"
which, surprisingly enough is a companion piece to Willoughby's "Frankenstein."
