See a full update from the band on social media and join us in wishing Andrew and Emily our best.

The beloved local duo founded by Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz rose to ascendancy as a new flagbearer of the contemporary folk world, sweetly singing soft songs about the hardest parts of our lives, both as people and as a people.

Ready for a change, Marlin and Frantz found themselves writing a new kind of tune and thus evolved into the duo we now know as Watchhouse. The name, like their new record, represents their reinvention as a band at the regenerative edges of subtly experimental folk rock. Challenging as they are charming, their recent additions to an extensive catalog welcome lessons about what any of us might become when the night begins to break.

Alongside drummer Joe Westerlund, guitarist Josh Oliver, and bassist Clint Mullican, Marlin and Frantz indulge novel structures and textures. They have discarded neither their tenderness nor thoughtfulness; instead, they’ve enriched those essential qualities by submitting to the risks of new sounds, structures, and inputs.
