Husband and wife duo Jillian Speece and Nathaniel Paul Hoff, also known as The Bergamot, are taking their vibrant indie folk- rock sounds on a cross-country musical Unity Collective Tour. After a successful Kickstarter Campaign, the Brooklyn based songwriters surpassed their $15,000 goal and will pack their 2002 Volvo to bring their message of peace, hope, and unity to every state in the continental US. The Bergamot aims to chronicle their journey and share their experiences with their fans and supporters with a documentary, music video, and even a book. Front and center of their tour will be their faithful Volvo in which the musical duo will travel cross-country to each performance. Fans are invited to sign the Volvo, inside and out, and one lucky fan at each stop will jump in the car to shoot a cab style video.
The Bergamot’s Volvo has safely delivered them to hundreds of shows and has become to them a symbol of peace, hope, and unity. Now they hope their upcoming tour will introduce their music and their message of unity to a greater fanbase and allow the fans to share in the message their Volvo will deliver. After the Volvo makes its final stop and is completely covered in their fans handwriting, The Bergamot promises to reveal a beautiful surprise at the conclusion of the tour.
In addition to the excitement of their upcoming tour, The Bergamots have officially announced the release date of their album, “Tones”. The album, set to release on February 12, 2016, was funded by a Kickstarter campaign that raised over $30,000 from fans around the country. The success of The Bergamot’s most recent Kickstarter campaign solidifies their fans desire to continue to support the great music and inspiring messages that The Bergamot continues to deliver.
