The incomparable harmony of soaring, sultry vocals, prolific lyrics and unique fusion of Americana, bluegrass, R&B, and roots music makeup the "heartfelt country soul" Underhill Rose has become known for. The Asheville, N.C. based trio is led by Eleanor Underhill, an accomplished lyricist and banjo picker, with an alluring, smoky voice and Molly Rose, the powerful songstress with a soaring vocal range and dazzling stage presence. The addition of bass player Salley Williamson produces an impressive third harmony to this lovely trinity. Their unmatched sound is captured on their self-titled, debut CD.
Molly and Eleanor's strong musical partnership began as front-women for the Barrel House Mamas and they continue to rise to the top of the southern music scene. Since forming in 2009, Underhill Rose has 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. The ladies have appeared at the famed Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion, The Warren Haynes Christmas Jam, and have also earned a coveted showcase performance at the famed Grove Park Inn. Their fresh sound, visually appealing performances and an extraordinary ability to blend a multitude of musical genres makes Underhill Rose a desirable addition to festivals, theaters, and listening rooms across the country.

Ellie: The girls were great and exactly the right band to help us welcome New Belgium Brewery to town. The rain fell - but the event was really meaningful and made better by Underhill Rose!
