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 and Bob Dylan, The Bergamot writes songs that are uplifting, catchy, and enchanting as Jillian’s alto voice blends with Nathaniel’s ethereal vocals to create dynamic harmonies. So be sure to give the band a listen if you haven’t.
