Underhill Rose blends aspects of Americana, rhythm and blues, country and bluegrass into an authentic sound that is all their own. These female troubadours’ original songs are wrapped in three-part harmonies and packaged with an eye-catching stage presence. The smoky voice of Eleanor Underhill joined with the soaring vocals of Molly Rose and the country twang of Salley Williamson creates a sound that can only be described as “heartfelt country soul.” Playing banjo and harmonica, guitar, and upright bass respectively, the trio has carved out a place in the Americana scene with songs that run the gamut from heart wrenching to sassy and playful to thought-provoking. The music is real and inspired, rooted in everything life has thrown at Asheville, North Carolina’s pre-eminent female trinity.
Underhill Rose makes music from the heart, drawing inspiration from folk bands, old country, and rhythm and blues divas that these ladies grew up listening to. The sound was captured, initially, on the group’s debut, self-titled album in 2011. The band's second release was made possible by a successful crowd-funded campaign along with the musical genius of producer Cruz Contreras of The Black Lillies and the multi-Grammy Award generating Echo Mountain Recording Studios. The product is a result of the boot-wearing trifecta’s close-knit collaboration that, for the first time, features three-part harmony and material from each of the members.
Since forming in 2009, Underhill Rose has played live throughout the Southeast, from the bluegrass of Kentucky to the sandy shores of the Florida coast. They have entertained crowds at festivals ranging from the Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion to the Warren Haynes Christmas Jam, and venues as renowned as the Grove Park Inn and the Biltmore Estate. The ladies have shared the stage with the likes of singer/songwriter Jim Lauderdale, Kevn Kinney of Drivin' N Cryin', Blackberry Smoke, Col. Bruce Hampton, Larry Keel, and the Everyone Orchestra featuring Jon Fishman and Papa Mali, and have been praised by industry legends, fans and media outlets throughout the country.
Armed with a fresh sound, visually appealing performances and an extraordinary ability to blend a multitude of musical genres, Underhill Rose is a trio with a sound that clings to listeners and audience members alike. The release of the new album in May 2013 is the beginning of a new chapter that will take the ladies to new heights and the music to new ears.
