“One of the most promising rootsy women artists in 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 three years, the all-female trifecta has independently released two albums in the top of the Roots Music Report and the Americana Music Association Chart.
Get to know the joyful, soaring voice of Molly Rose and her guitar and the distinctive banjo styling of Eleanor and her salty-blues vocals in tandem with Salley on upright bass and harmonies. See them on PBS Television, hear the trio on nationally syndicated radio and at live performances across the US and Europe, and you will know how Underhill Rose has carved out a unique place in the Americana scene.
After their second album, Something Real, shot up the AMA Chart in 2013 to #18, 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. By the summer of 2015, The Great Tomorrow was climbing the Top 30 of the AMA Charts. The new release also took hold at #1 on The Roots Music Report’s Progressive Bluegrass Album Chart for over 9 weeks. Follow it up with a January 2016 appearance on the Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour and you will believe what Glide Magazine notably declares: “If justice prevails, The Great Tomorrow will open the door to the wider awareness they so decidedly deserve.”
Molly Rose and Eleanor Underhill’s musical partnership is the result of a chance meeting and 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 10 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.”
