FOR ALMOST ten years, the duo Underhill Rose has shaken up the Americana scene with melt-your-heart melodies, luminous arrangements, and unforgettable live performances. Featuring Molly Rose on guitar and Eleanor Underhill on banjo, the North Carolina band has gained international recognition since its formation.
In the last four years, Underhill Rose has independently released two albums in the top of the Americana Music Association Airplay Chart and Roots Music Report Chart; their second record, Something Real, peaked at number 18 on the AMA Charts, was named an AMA Top 100 Album of the Year, and even scored in the top 25 of the EuroAmericana Chart, Freeform Americana Radio, and The Alternate Root “Roots 66” Charts. Underhill Rose celebrated their third record going number one on The Roots Music Report’s Progressive Bluegrass Album Chart for over nine weeks in 2015.
