At it’s core, Mandolin Orange is a duo – Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz – from Carrboro, NC. Their harmonies are ethereal, their chemistry vibrant, bringing to mind the atmosphere invoked by classic duos such as Emmylou Harris and Gram Parsons, or Gillian Welch and David Rawlings. Andrew and Emily provide the foundation of the group’s timeless Americana sound, while enlisting a full band to flesh out their dynamics. This Side of Jordan is the group’s 3rd full length. The band has made quite a bit of noise on the folk/Americana circuit, while displaying a virtuosity and exuberance that crosses over to more indie-rock inclined audiences. This Side of Jordan is a stunning work of beauty and grace from a young band destined for great things, and we cannot wait to share it with you.
