Youth in a Roman Field wants to help you break the rules. The bastardized string quartet meets folk band meets jazz combo from singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Claire Wellin incorporates sounds of "Appalachia, cayenne pepper, & ghosts." The band includes collaborators Tiffany Topol, Scott Stangland, Cassidy Stirtz, Katrina Lenk, and Jamie Mohamdein. Their debut LP, 'Of Grit and Grace,' was released in May of 2012, and the EP 'Suits for Children' in October 2014. Originally out of Chicago, the band now resides in New York City and released their second full-length album, 'Storm Conductor,' produced with the legendary Stewart Lerman, on April 20.
