Walnut Street) on Friday, June 15th at 8:00 p.m.Closing out a Tennessee weekend, the ladies from western North Carolina are excited to be back in Johnson City. “Playing our music in the mountains is a special thing,” said Eleanor Underhill. “I love Johnson City and it makes me happy to know that we’re able to start the summer off in the area.” Molly Rose shared her sentiment, “I can’t wait to see our fans at the Acoustic Coffeehouse.” Admission to the performance is free and Underhill Rose opens for The Get Right Band.Being called “one of the most promising rootsy women artists in the Americana scene” by No Depression magazine, Underhill Rose has earned a reputation as a trio with an impeccable sound and a captivating stage presence. Upon hearing the band for the first time, the Asheville Citizen-Times described the sound as “dusty country soul with gorgeous vocal arrangements…filled with acoustic strings and pastoral melodies.”
Formed from the ashes of the acclaimed Barrel House Mamas, sultry vocalist and banjo picker Eleanor Underhill joined forces with Molly Rose, a country tinged guitar playing songstress, in 2009. After regional success, including the release of their critically acclaimed debut album, Underhill Rose added a third harmony in upright bass player Salley Williamson. Upon claiming a top 20 ranking in “WNCW’s 2011 Regional Releases” with their self-titled album and being added to Pandora radio, the band launched their first music video for the fan favorite, “Who Brought the Sun,” earlier this year.
The ladies have become the darlings of the Southeastern music scene, recently being handpicked to play at the celebration announcing the building of the New Belgium brewery in Asheville. Underhill Rose regularly appears at the famed Grove Park Inn and has planned an extensive summer tour, including upcoming shows at Border Bash and the Rhythm and Roots Reunion in Bristol, TN; the Steppin’ Out Festival in Blacksburg, VA; the Empty Glass in Charleston, WV; and the European Street Café in Jacksonville, FL. In addition to touring, the group is currently writing new songs to be released in the coming year and making plans for a new music video.
