Matrimony is a group with a unique twist. Not only are they a local Charlotte band, but they are also a family band. Lead singers Ashlee Hardee Brown and Jimmy Brown are married, and remaining band members Jordan and CJ Hardee are Ashlee’s brothers.
The group played at 106.5’s New Music Revolution Concert Series, and has deep Charlotte roots. They are currently on tour with Twin Forks, and for the first time ever will be heading to perform on the West Coast. They played on the main stage at 1:00 before their interview with us.
Their song “Obey Your Guns” was used in a commercial promoting Chevrolet’s Malibu. The band had some fun talking about their commercial, and joking around with Jack Daniel about what kind of brand their music represents.
“I don’t think Matrimony would necessarily be on…a Playboy Mansion commercial or something like that you know, but a Chevy Malibu where it’s cruising through the Malibu coastline and they’re playing Obey Your Guns...”
One of the members jokingly suggested they could even provide theme music for condoms. After their interview, they met with fans and took some photos.
The group looked like they had some fun with Jared Leto and 30 Seconds to Mars, as apparent by this tweet (below). Thanks again to these hometown heroes for rocking the stage!
