“It’s got the atmospheric, dramatic female vocals of a Feist track married
to rhythmic percussion…but the track really manages to distinguish itself in
the evocative twinkle of its synth lines.” – Baeble Music
“Following in the footsteps as such duos as Simon & Garfunkel and Hall and Oates
The Bergamot…create seamless musical tapestry that span the genres
of the pop music spectrum.” – ICON Magazine
“Move over pop stars! These singers are here to blow your mind.” – BuzzFeed
February 1, 2016 – Brooklyn, NY – Brooklyn-based alternative folk duo The Bergamot has premiered their brand new single “Alive,” via Paste Magazine. You can listen to the latest track from their forthcoming album Tones – out February 11th, 2016 – today, here: http://bit.ly/20C6ZgO. The band has previously been featured on Baeble Music and idobi Radio for lead singles “Forget About Tomorrow” and “Tones,” respectively.

On “Alive,” the band tells us: “Sometimes the greatest way to feel alive is to just go forth into life blindly with the hope of learning and growing. Alive really sets an optimistic tone to a life lived – not allowed to pass by.“
The Bergamot recently wrapped their highly successful The Unity Collective USA Kickstarter campaign, which surpassed its goal of $15,000 towards the band’s upcoming 50 State “Unity Tour,” raising more than 124% of the funds needed. The money raised will be used to maintain the band’s Volvo throughout the tour, in addition to documenting the entire experience and providing updates to fans along the way. At each stop, The Bergamot will be inviting fans to sign their car as a symbol of unity. The “Unity Tour” kicked off in NYC on January 2nd, 2016, and will include a homecoming in South Bend, IN on April 2nd. It also marks the band’s last tour in their 2002 Volvo, which has racked up over 271,000 miles throughout their history of touring. The Volvo will be auctioned off at the tour’s final stop, with all proceeds going towards Memorial Children’s Hospital.
Consisting of husband-and-wife duo Nathaniel Paul Hoff and Jillian Speece, The Bergamot arrived on the international music scene in 2012 when they won Bud Light Battle of the Bands. Since then, the band has seen their popularity balloon, taking them from coast to coast and from continent to continent.
Drawing upon influences such as Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Joni Mitchell, The Dave Matthews Band and Bob Dylan, The Bergamot writes songs that are uplifting, catchy, and enchanting as Jillian’s velvety alto voice blends seamlessly with Nathaniel’s ethereal vocals to create dynamic harmonies. The band weaves intimate storytelling with articulate instrumentation, crafting an innovative indie folk-rock sound that combines both the joys and heartaches of life into a story. Since meeting in their hometown of South Bend, Indiana in 2003, Nathaniel and Jillian have released three albums and toured extensively across North America and Europe.
Thanks to their uplifting and infectiously sweet sound, The Bergamot has been taking the music world by storm – earning the affection and admiration of BuzzFeed, Daytrotter, The Aquarian Weekly, ICON Magazine, Chicago Tribune, Brooklyn Vegan, Kings of A&R, The Deli Magazine, and so many more, as well as a recent placement on ABC‘s “Blood & Oil.” The Bergamot have also opened up for artists such as All American Rejects, Young The Giant, and Ben Sollee, as well as performed at SXSW, Taste of Chicago, The Traverse City Film Festival, and Bud Lights Port Paradise Music Festival.
The Bergamot will be releasing their new album Tones on February 11th, 2016. For more information on The Bergamot, please visit: www.thebergamot.com.
