Youth in a Roman Field wants to help you break the rules. The bastardized folk band / jazz combo / string quartet hybrid led by singer,
songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Claire Wellin incorporates sounds of
"Appalachia, cayenne pepper, & ghosts." The band includes collaborators Tiffany Topol, Scott Stangland, Cassidy Stirtz, and Jamie Mohamdein, and creates an original, progressive sound with sweeping, powerful vocals at the forefront. Based in Queens, the band released their second full-length record, ‘Storm Conductor,’ in 2018 and is currently recording their third.
"These are not normal people, and that's why it works so well." -Charlie Shafer, Fire in the Kitchen Concerts
"Idiosyncratically accessible artistry." -Jamie Lee Rake, Milwaukee Shepherd Express
"An extremely sophisticated adventure, Wellin’s voice is animated, emotive, and powerful, and sets well with the haunting and often cinematic quality to the sounds of strings, versatile percussion, and endless, graceful melody." -Tom Haugen, New Noise
