Mandolin Orange

Mandolin Orange's deviant harmonies intensify poems of the natural world, ornamented with violin, mandolin, and acoustic and electric guitars. Songwriter Andrew Marlin and vocalist/instrumentalist Emily Frantz pair their distinct musical roles to stylize lyrical tunes influenced by their folk, jazz and bluegrass predecessors.

The duo's core sound revolves around pairings of violin, mandolin, and guitar, but Quiet Little Room features additional instrumentation from electric guitar, harmonica, electric and stand-up bass, organ, drums and viola, all played by Andrew and Emily. Quiet Little Room reflects the influence of traditional music on the duo's progressive style, providing a sound that’s uniquely their own yet somehow satisfyingly familiar.
