Montibello Memories Out This Week On Columbia Records, Band Announce Additions To 28-Date Spring U.S. Tour

Rolling Stone, NPR Mountain Stage, the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Paste, Billboard, CMT Edge and The Bluegrass Situation have already joined the list of outlets in the band’s corner as their story continues to build.

Fronted by husband and wife Jimmy Brown (vocals, guitar) and Ashlee Hardee Brown (vocals, keyboards), Matrimony is rounded out by Ashlee’s brothers Jordan Hardee (drums) and CJ Hardee (mandolin, banjo).  The family dynamic creates a deeply intuitive musical connection that can be heard on record and is even clearer during the band’s live shows.
