Biography

A collaboration between singer/songwriter Amelia Meath of the Appalachian indie folk trio Mountain Man and electronic producer Nick Sanborn, who performs under the moniker Made of Oak and plays bass with rootsy psych-rockers Megafaun, Durham, North Carolina's Sylvan Esso craft evocative, yet elusive electro folk-pop confections that encompass the best parts of both artists. Formed in 2013, a year after Sanborn presented Meath with a particularly affecting remix of the Meath-penned Mountain Man song "Play It Right," the duo released their Partisan Records-issued debut long-player in early 2014. The LP cracked the Top 40 on the Billboard 200 on the strength of the singles "Hey Mami" and "Coffee," the latter of which was performed on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, marking their national television debut. Early 2017 saw the release of two new singles, "Radio" and "Kick Jump Twist," in anticipation of the arrival of their sophomore full-length What Now, which dropped later that year. After a year of extensive touring, the duo collaborated with tourmates Collections of Colonies of Bees on a 2018 cover of Califone's "Funeral Singers." ~ James Christopher Monger
