“Take a listen to the music of Eleanor Underhill, Molly Rose, and Salley Williamson, and you will be transported to a sound that has several different ingredients – but at the end of the day, it all comes together to make a dazzling fusion of Country, Bluegrass, Pop, and even a little bit of Tin Pan Blues.”

Chuck Dauphin – Music News Nashville

“Underhill Rose cast a decidedly feminine presence on the Americana scene, which is largely male-oriented. This trio of lovely young women could have sold out to Nashville from their good looks and pretty voices alone, but thankfully they decided to opt for a vintage country sound. More specifically, Underhill Rose is rooted in bluegrass, folk, and blues, linking them with indelible pop hooks and soulful harmonizing.”

Stacey Zering – No Depression

“Many songs are tinted with an almost 60s pop flavor; on several songs I was humming the hook the first time through. This and the fact that the band is made up of three females (Eleanor Underhill, banjo; Molly Rose Reed, guitar; Salley Williamson, upright bass) give Underhill Rose a unique and rich sound full of high harmonies and accessible but inventive melodies .”

Richard Combs – Common Folk Music

“Today’s bluegrass acts routinely draw from rock, jam, and jazz, but rarely — and by rarely, we mean never — do they draw from R&B. But lo and behold, that’s exactly what Asheville’s Underhill Rose has accomplished.”

Chris Haire – Charleston City Paper

“Eleanor Underhill has a killer voice. It's rich and potentially far-reaching, and the combination with Molly Rose's sweet lilt and the twangy vocals of University of Montana graduate Salley Williamson sounds as solid as you'd expect from a band that's been playing together since 2009.”

Gaaby Patterson – Missoula Independent

“[Blends] the base elements of Americana, blue grass, R&B and roots music in a show of impressive harmonies.”
