The Bergamot, L.A. Review
The Bergamot is an indie-folk-rock duet comprised of husband-and-wife Jillian Speece and Nathaniel Paul Hoff. Based in Brooklyn, New York, the band was formed in 2009 by Hoff (lead guitarist/vocalist) and Speece (lead vocalist) in college at Indiana University Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW). The Bergamot’s have been releasing music and touring extensively ever since. In November 2017, they won Project Aloft Star via the (Aloft Hotel) Northern American competition.

The Bergamot is now releasing their single titled, “L.A.” The song builds on the emotion of moving on. Whether it be love – or dreams – “L.A.” illustrates an emotional perspective of letting go and opening-up to the future with persisting hope.
