Formed in 2009 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina around singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Andrew Marlin and violinist/guitarist Emily Frantz, Mandolin Orange draw from wells both old and new, offering up a heady mix of bluegrass, gospel, folk, country, and pop that invokes the earthy timelessness (and effortless harmonies) of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, the sweet unpredictability of Nickel Creek, and the rich, gothic Americana of the Civil Wars. Partners in music and life, the pair released their self-produced debut, Quiet Little Rooms, in 2010, followed by the ambitious double album Haste Make/Hard Hearted Stranger in 2011. The duo inked a deal with Yep Roc for 2013's This Side of Jordan, and spent the next two years touring heavily in support of the well received outing. Such Jubilee, the duo's fourth studio album, followed in 2015. ~ James Christopher Monger
