The Gloria Darlings - Come Home To Me

With extraordinarily pleasing vocals and tight harmonies Seattle’s dynamic bluegrass/folk duo The Gloria Darlings effortlessly combine old-fashioned mountain music with touches of gypsy jazz, honkytonk, and country blues for a sound that seems timeless.

Melissa Jane Pandiani (Pandi) handles most of the lead vocals and contributes all the guitar, while her partner classically trained Amelia Boksenbaum (Milly Raccoon) also sings while doing dual heavy lifting on fiddle and mandolin. Michael Connolly, who recorded and mixed the album, plays upright bass.
Their latest release 'Come Home To Me' features nine original tunes, five penned by Pandi and four by Milly, and two covers, "I'm Gonna Love You One More Time" a Louvin Brothers tune and Ray Price "You Done Me Wrong"

Already embraced by the vibrant Northwest Folklife community and recently selected as finalists for Northwest String Summit, The Gloria Darlings are definitely going to make a splash on the national scene in the near future.
