The Bergamot / Press

"Trust us, this is a band that boasts impressive credentials wherever you look, most of which is fully realized with Static Flowers."

"Following in the footsteps as such duos as Simon & Garfunkel and Hall and Oates The Bergamot co-founders Jillian Speece and Nathan Hoff create seamless musical tapestry that span the genres of the pop music spectrum."

"Move over pop stars! These amateur singers are here to blow your mind."

“Fittingly, the song begins in A minor (Am, for short), and with solo acoustic guitar accompanying Jillian Speece and Nathan Hoff's beautifully harmonizing vocals."”

"You guys are GREAT! Love your sound! You're like Adele/Tuck & Patti with some yummy blues and a splash of Grace Potter. Very inspiring."

"This duo is unbelievably talented."

"The Bergamot's uplifting Indie is redefining what pop means because the music is relatable, but not what you would traditionally think of as pop."

"Jillian Speece and Nathaniel Paul Hoff of The Bergamot are two of the most inspiring, uplifting individuals that I’ve had the pleasure of meeting."

"Starting from such humble beginnings, most groups would have disbanded before achieving success in a generation that demands instant gratification; however, this duo persevered, spending countless hours writing, crafting, and rewriting songs."

"We are thrilled to add these three up-and- coming acts to an already eclectic and enormously talented lineup."

"Being unfamiliar with the first two self-released albums by the duo known as The Bergamot, I will happily admit to being bowled over by everything their third album is: smart, eclectic, assured, soulful, moving, uplifting and radiating the confidence of musicians secure in their voices and united in their purpose."

"Wow! The Bergamot...The heck with American Idol, the heck with the Grammys...That is a fantastic sound! Remember you heard them first here on WGN Chicago."

"The Bergamot WILL become a household name!"

"Much love to The Bergamot. They played some beautiful songs at our event."

"Artfully blending a beautifully crisp, tuneful, and energetic sound with smart songwriting and an equally sharp-as-a-tack worldly sensibility, the indie pop-rock duo of Jillian Speece and Nathan Hoff totally hit it out of the ballpark with their excellent third album."

"This duo blends the folk-tinged pop smarts of Elliott Smith with hints of 'mainstream Americana,' crafting the harmonious sounds of Static Flowers, the band's debut. They also won 'Best Unsigned American Band' in a competition sponsored by Bud Light."

"The Bergamot, a male-female folk duo from Chicago started the night off with two AWESOME songs."

"The Bergamot’s set which was also strong. Straight-ahead danceable rock and roll underneath fine vocals."

"That was AMAZING! You guys are great...You work together so well!!"

"The Bergamot ROCKED the Elbo Room, with a powerful yet soulful R&B/alternative performance. This set had EVERYTHING!!!"

“It’s a snapshot of their 60-plus song repertoire, an easy, satisfying EP experience that mixes the indie genre with classical guitar licks, Motown treatments, James Taylor and the Beatles, not to mention some of that Over The Rhine feel. The result is infectious in the best Motown tradition. You sing along, and you dance without a care about who may be watching.”
