ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“One of the most promising rootsy women artists in the Americana scene.” – No Depression

Harmonies. Soul-touching lyrics. Underhill Rose has put its talents to work to become synonymous with fresh, beautiful Americana music.

With Eleanor playing her distinctive claw-hammer style on a Deering banjo along with harmonica, Molly Rose on guitar and Salley plucking the upright bass, 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. Eleanor’s salty blues-inspired voice and Molly’s soaring range lead the group in tandem with Salley’s country twang to create three-part harmony music that is real and inspired, and rooted in everything life has thrown at Asheville, North Carolina’s pre-eminent female trinity.

Molly Rose and Eleanor Underhill’s musical partnership is the result of a chance meeting at a makeshift performance of “Angel from Montgomery” between classes at Warren Wilson College. Molly Rose’s beautiful voice resonated with Eleanor, and the two eventually started performing live together. Their affinity for the music they make has kept them together for more than 12 years. Underhill Rose formed in 2009, and the addition of Salley Williamson two years later created the foundation for an internationally-recognized female trio known for blending aspects of Americana, rhythm and blues, country and bluegrass into an authentic sound that is all their own—“Heartfelt Country Soul.”

After years of extensive touring, Underhill Rose had plenty of fodder for a third original album. They launched a second successful fan-funding campaign in 2014 that brought in over $25,000 from fans and followed it with a five-week national tour and an appearance on the PBS-syndicated show, The Woodwright’s Shop. Finally, the group settled into the recording studio in the winter of 2014 and created their best work yet–The Great Tomorrow. They called upon the help of producer Cruz Contreras of the Black Lillies once again and brought on mixer Danny Kadar, who has worked with such notable artists as My Morning Jacket, The Avett Brothers, and Band of Horses. With an incredible group of studio musicians, including members of The Steep Canyon Rangers and The Jeff Sipe Trio, Underhill Rose was able to elevate their eleven-song album with layers of pedal steel, fiddle, and electric guitar. The result is both dreamy and robust.

"The Great Tomorrow" is powerful follow up to the bands prior release. The successful completion of a crowd-funding campaign kick-started 2013, a year that will go down as career-defining for the trio. The financial support from fans led to the recording of the group’s second release, the Cruz Contreras (The Black Lillies) produced “Something Real,” at 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 all three women singing their self-written material.

“Something Real” debuted in May 2013 and quickly began climbing the Americana Music Association Airplay Chart. The release would spend 10 weeks in the Top 40 and an additional 12 in the Top 100. By the end of the year, the album was named an AMA Top 100 album of the year. The group’s record also appeared in the Top 25 on the EuroAmericana, Freeform Americana Radio (FAR) and The Alternate Root “Roots 66” charts. The band has earned critical-acclaim from No Depression, Music News Nashville, Common Folk Music, The Alternate Root, The Roots Music Report, and numerous other publications throughout the United States and Europe.

The group took the album release as an opportunity to expand its touring footprint, spending multiple weeks playing Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado during the summer of 2013. The trio wrapped up the year with debut performances in the northeastern United States, including an appearance at New York City’s The Bitter End, where multiple rock-and-roll legends were in attendance, and an opening slot for legendary singer-songwriter Chris Smither in Pennsylvania.

Underhill Rose makes music from the heart, drawing inspiration from life-long listening to folk, old country, and rhythm and blues. Armed with a fresh sound and an extraordinary ability to blend a multitude of musical genres, Underhill Rose is an acoustic trio that will touch your soul.
