        Mandolin Orange are a band of extremes. Musically, the North Carolina duo produce music that is pure and calming. Lyrically, their topics take a stand on human rights, environment and other pieces plucked from today’s news. Andrew Marlin (guitar) met Emily Frantz (fiddle) in 2009 at a bluegrass jam in Durham, NC. Andrew had played guitar since he was fourteen, Emily has been in various bluegass bands around North Carolina. The duo came to Alternate Root TV studios in Boston in May to record The Extended Play Sessions. Mandolin Orange added players for 'This Side of Jordan,' their label debut album for North Carolina based Yep Roc records. The album was recorded at the Fideltorium in Kernersville, North Carolina with bassist Jeff Crawford and a backing band, Religious faith and fable thread throughout the record with Biblical references that Emily Frantz sees as a way to “convey a different point. In the south especially, we hear the Bible construed in any and every way to justify people’s comforts and discomforts. Here band mate, and group lyricist , Andrew Marlin added, “and it’s so frustrating to watch those stories be used to limit people’s happiness.” This sentiment inspired “Hey Adam,” where Marlin and Frantz urge in unison during the chorus, “Our Father loves you all ways.”

                      http://www.myspace.com/mandolinorange An all-around original folk duo from Chapel Hill, NC. Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz pair guitar, violin and mandolin to compliment alluring lyrics and seamless harmonies. “The duo’s voices and instruments fit alongside each other like Johnny and June Carter Cash … Mandolin Orange embodies the same backwoods lovebirds aesthetic” (DailyTarHeel). Their debut album, releasing in Spring 2010, reflects both the influence of traditional music on their contemporary style and the simplified, authentic recordings which make up the compilation. Their influences range from Cole Porter to Doris Day to Townes Van Zandt, but their sound is something charming and all its own. Filmed in Pittsboro, NC (2009)
