Breaking with a sound of lazy guitars and rich harmonies, The Bergamot creates dreamy folk-pop blending golden era 70's folk with 60's coastal rock with modern synths.
The Bergamot is an American indie-folk-rock band based in Brooklyn, New York. The two founding members and songwriters of The Bergamot are husband and wife Nathaniel Hoff and Jillian Speece.
In early 2018, The Bergamot began working with producer/engineer Matt Wiggins (London Grammar, Glass Animals, Adele) in London which led to the release of their single "P.D.R." This song quickly gained The Bergamot attention, resulting in the duo winning the Aloft: Rising Star contest in November. The full-length album "Mayflies" is set to be released Fall 2019 with a full-length documentary to be released in early 2020.
Since that single, The Bergamot has been featured in Rock Band: Rivals being named one of the “Hottest Emerging Music Talents” by People Magazine launching them into the international spotlight. The duo successfully raised over $31,500 on Kickstarter to support the creation of their upcoming album. Other recent features include The Daily Mirror (UK) & The Daily Mirror (UK).
The Band is currently co-producing a full-length documentary called “State of the Unity” filmed over the entire journey in 2016 set to be released later this year. 2018 was marked by The Bergamot opening for the X Ambassadors, BANNERS, and Bea Miller. The duo is set to announce a summer 2019 tour that includes headlining dates at this year’s Wanderlust Music Festival.
