“Years ago, in a Haverford Township, Penn., middle school production of “The Music Man,” Samantha Gongol and Jeremy Lloyd played main characters Marian Peru and Harold Hill. The two had no clue at the time that, many years later, they would start a band in college. But as soon as they began collaborating musically, they knew exactly what to call the project: Marian Hill, a combination of the names of the two characters, the perfect homage to the first time they shared a stage. Earlier this year, Marian Hill signed to Universal Music group affiliates Photo Finish/Republic Records, which released their “Sway” EP in February. Since then, they’ve performed at major festivals all over the U.S. including Firefly, Made in America, ACL Festival, among others. Now they’re about to set out on a headlining tour of North America, playing rooms as big as The House of Blues in Dallas and The Roxy in Los Angeles. They’ve also been at Universal’s recording studio in New York City — Gongol and Lloyd both live in Brooklyn — working on Marian Hill’s debut album.” — via Redbull
