As of 9:20 a.m. Monday, Underhill Rose’s latest effort, “Something Real,” was No. 62 on the Americana Music Association chart and No. 19 on the Alternate Root chart. Tonight, the band will play Music on the Square at 7 p.m. on the courthouse steps in Jonesborough.
Since forming in 2009, Underhill Rose, from Asheville, N.C., 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 band has shared the stage with 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.
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.
