Stay friends with the people you meet in high school – you guys might make a song that ends up in an Apple commercial.

That’s what happened to Jeremy Lloyd and Sam Gongol of Marian Hill. They’re two artists who met at choir practice back in Philadelphia and have just been launched to worldwide attention thanks to the commercial for Apple’s iPhone 7 & AirPods.

They’ve been releasing songs and EP’s since 2013, have performed at Bonnaroo and appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden. But when their debut album ‘Act One’ dropped in 2016, the duo wasn’t sure what was next.  Sam told, “We had buzz, but no plans.”

Thanks in part to Apple, they’re making plans fast and success is a less intimidating feat.

So put in your AirPods (or regular, corded headphones. Whichever you’ve got) and enjoy ‘Down’ from Launch Artist Marian Hill.
