Mandolin Orange is songwriter Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz. The Chapel Hill, NC duo ornaments lyric and harmony focused tunes with acoustic and electric guitars, fiddle and mandolin. Their instrumentation draws on bluegrass and rock-and-roll alike, keeping Marlin’s dark lyrical themes at the forefront of their country sound. The duo released a sophomore double LP entitled Haste Make | Hard Hearted Stranger on November 8, 2011, and will continue to tour in support of the album in 2012.
Since their debut release, Mandolin Orange has shared bills with Rosanne Cash, Chatham County Line, the Steep Canyon Rangers and Abigail Washburn, and performed at festivals such as Shakori Hills Grassroots, Hopscotch Music Fest, Beaufort Music Festival, and Albino Skunk Festival (SC).
