Formed in 2009, Matrimony is an indie folk-pop family band from Charlotte, North Carolina fronted by Ashlee Hardee Brown (vocals/keys) and her husband, Irish expat Jimmy Brown (vocals/guitar). The band also includes Ashlee's two brothers, C.J. Hardee (mandolin/banjo) and Jordan Hardee (drums). In 2010, Matrimony recorded an EP, The Storm and the Eye. Over the next two years, the band hit the road, sharing stages with Langhorne Slim and Passion Pit. In 2012, they headed to Nashville to begin work on their first LP with producer Jay Joyce (Brandi Carlile, Cage the Elephant), eventually inking a deal with Columbia. Released in May 2014, their debut album, Montibello Memories, is named after the Hardees' family home. ~ Timothy Monger
