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 resides in New York City and recently released their second full-length album, recorded with legendary producer Stewart Lerman, on April 20. Claire recently completed a 6-week solo tour in support of the record, which culminated in a full band show last night at Mercury Lounge. For upcoming shows and more information, visit
