Bagnell (first violin), Christopher
Marchant (second violin), Daniel
Shevlin (cello) and Trevor Wadleigh (viola). A follow-up to their chart-topping sophomore album POPssical (released in 2015), Under the Covers is now available for pre-order at this link, on iTunes, Amazon, and wherever music is sold.

Out Magazine described them best when they said: "Aside from all being incredibly gorgeous, the men of the all-male singing string quartet Well-Strung are talented masters of turning pop hits into instrumental wonders." After the group's now manager Mark Cortale discovered Christopher
Marchant playing the violin on the streets of Provincetown, MA, Well-Strung made their debut as a group in 2012. Since then, they've performed for President Obama, Hillary Clinton and at The Vatican, played alongside artists including Kristin Chenoweth, Audra McDonald, and Neil Patrick Harris, and covered everyone from the Beatles
to Taylor Swift. Later this fall, following the release of Under the Covers, Well-Strung will embark on a two-week international US Embassy
Cultural Engagement tour that includes performances in Istanbul, London and more.
