When you first see the name “Marian Hill,” you may think of one person? But we invite you to think of two — keyboardist Jeremy Lloyd and singer Samantha Gongol, who formed a band called Marian Hill, lifting the first and last names from different characters in The Music Man.
Regardless of what else you might remember, know that Marian Hill will release Unusual, their second studio album, on May 11. And they will perform at 9:30 Club on May 9 on their Unusual Tour. You can win tickets to see them with Parklife DC.
The duo recently released “Differently,” the latest single from Unusual. Tom Shackleford of AXS said Samantha’s vocals and Jeremy’s synths truly shine on the track: “Their separate but perfectly measured contributions come together to give the song enough power to keep listeners intrigued from start to finish.”
In a statement, Samantha said the new album is intended to empower women. “We don’t feel strong and confident all the time, but we hope that when you listen to our music, it makes you feel that way,” she said.
