THE UNDERHILL FAMILY ORCHESTRA:
The Underhill Family Orchestra, native to the Alabama delta, has been described as "outright anthemic" taking their compositions to "idyllic places" that make you want to "paint your face, forget your age, and kiss a stranger." With "the bare knuckled nature" of their sound and their command of the "intricate, melancholy and densely literate" themes in the songs they create, they invoke a "sense of riot" with their arm-swingin, foot-stomping, Appalachia-inspired sound that makes effort to "infuse sheer pop catchiness into the rootsier, grittier elements" made up of sultry and soulful 4-part vocal arrangements and a unique take on the southern sound for which Alabama is known. They have recently been in the studio after their October ‘16 signing to Skate Mountain Records, and will be hitting the road to promote their debut major record release set to drop in early 2018.
"The Underhill Family Orchestra pen an ode to reuniting with your loved one on "When the Trumpet Sounds," an electrifying soulful affair.” - The Americana Music Association
