ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"One of the most promising rootsy women artists on the Americana scene." -No Depression

Harmonies. Soul-touching lyrics. Eye-catching stage presence. Underhill Rose has become synonymous with beautiful music, charming personalities, and rippling success. In the last four years, the boot-wearing trifecta from Asheville, North Carolina has independently released two albums in the top of the Americana Music Association Airplay Chart and Roots Music Report Chart, all the while garnering critical acclaim from around the globe.

Featuring original songs from their three studio albums, Underhill Rose Live covers the depth and joy of nearly a decade of musical partnership. By removing the bells and whistles of past recordings, Underhill Rose reveals the fundamental elements of their sound: a powerful trio in full bloom. The first track, “Who Brought the Sun,” highlights Rose’s lyrical poeticism and soaring vocal performance, the song resolving in a dreamy a capella chorus. Next, a visit to the “Whispering Pines Motel,” for Underhill’s noirish tale of romantic longing. Track three, “They Got My Back,” is bass player Williamson’s tribute to the supportive community in which she was raised. Similar to the group’s prior albums, the live album features all three songwriters of Underhill Rose.

In a divergent move from past albums, however, the live collection also includes several crowd-favorite covers, with each band member taking a turn at the helm. After a charming interchange between Rose and her grandmother sitting in the front row, Rose’s gentle lilt spins the 80’s pop tune “Bette Davis Eyes” into a piece more akin to contemplative folk. Williamson debuts her lead vocal with confidence and sass on “These Boots Are Made for Walkin’,” and Underhill sheds a new light on John Prine’s “Long Monday” with thoughtful yet melancholic vocals and harmonica. Well-loved by crowds, “Trouble in Mind” begins with the band’s signature three-part harmony before launching into high gear.

Underhill Rose Live acts partly as a “best of” collection, showcasing the breadth of the trio’s catalogue in a stripped-down style that sounds and feels live. “Love Looks Good on You” ponders true happiness and is glittered with Underhill’s harmonica, while “Little House” showcases carefully crafted vocal harmonies. The 15 song album--printed on ethically sourced materials and featuring original artwork by Molly Rose--is a true homage to the trifecta’s roots.

Get to know the joyful soaring voice of Molly Rose and her guitar, the distinctive styling of Eleanor Underhill’s open-back Deering banjo and salty-blues vocals in tandem with Salley Williamson on upright bass and harmonies. With their song-centered original compositions and diverse southern backgrounds, the women of Underhill Rose create three-part harmony music that is real and inspired. See the trio on PBS Television, hear them on nationally-syndicated radio and at live performances across the US and Europe, and you will know how Underhill Rose has carved out a distinctive place in the Americana-folk scene.

The successful completion of two crowd-funding campaigns raised over $50,000 and freed the group to independently release two noteworthy and charting albums. Their sophomore release, Something Real, peaked at number 18 on the AMA Chart, was named an AMA Top 100 Album of the Year, and claimed a spot in the top 25 of the EuroAmericana Chart, Freeform Americana Radio, and The Alternate Root “Roots 66” charts. In 2015, the band’s tertiary album, The Great Tomorrow, released to wide acclaim, reached the Top 30 of the AMA Airplay Chart once again, and took hold at number 1 on The Roots Music Report’s Progressive Bluegrass Album Chart for over nine weeks. R2 Magazine notes, “The Great Tomorrow is simply top-class country music, seasoned beautifully and seamlessly with earworm hooks and bluesy edges, all delivered with instrumental panache and supremely confident singing.”

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. Their affinity for the music they make has kept them together for more than 10 years. Underhill Rose formed in 2009, and the addition of Salley Williamson two years later created the foundation for the internationally-recognized female trio known for blending aspects of Americana, R&B, country, and bluegrass into an authentic sound that is all their own—“Heartfelt Country Soul.” 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.
