We’re delighted to be working with the Essex Green for the first time!

The Essex Green are a neo-psychedelic pop outfit from Brooklyn, NY, via Burlington, VT. The band is primarily composed of songwriters Jeff Baron, Sasha Bell, and Chris Ziter and specialises in a classic sound inspired by 1960s and 1970s pop and folk in the tradition of bands like The Left Banke and Fairport Convention.

Inspired by the psychedelic sounds of the 1960s while adding some lilting folk-rock and the occasional bit of classic country to the mix, the Essex Green were part of the Elephant 6-affiliated scene of the late 1990s. The band shared members with the Ladybug Transistor for a few years, and like that group, their take on chamber pop was gentle and richly arranged. After recording an album for Kindercore, they released two albums for Merge in the early to mid-2000s, then, after long break from working together, reunited without a hitch and released their latest album Hardly Electronic in 2018.
