Based in Imperial Beach and founded in 1999, Willovealot was originally known as as the Lee Brown Perspective, until the name was changed in 2004.

Smooth jazz guitarist Willie Lee Brown explains the name Willovealot is “Just as it is perceived...my father’s name is Will, and it’s also part of my own. The word love is just about the most important word known to mankind so, with those ingredients, I chose the name for my band.”

Their full-length Make Um Feel It was released in 2003.
