Andrew Marlin of Mandolin Orange

Tides of A Teardrop is Mandolin Orange’s latest release, and we only recently had the opportunity to sit down with them. Their last record, 2016’s Blindfaller garnered wild acclaim, and I can tell you that Tides of a Teardrop should eclipse that. It’s a deeply personal record, written primarily by Andrew Marlin, with some input from Emily Frantz. Together, the duo make absolutely incredible roots music, beyond the bluegrass label they’ve been tagged with. This interview is an intimate one with Andrew Marlin. A very intimate behind the scenes conversation with Andrew Marlin. His comments regarding Jeff Austin were so poignant and beautiful too. You can catch Mandolin Orange at several festivals and solo dates throughout the summer. For those details visit
