Smart bets: Underhill Rose

Nearly 300 fans pledged $25,491 to help Underhill Rose bring 11 new tracks of banjo-heavy country and Americana to fruition this summer. While “The Great Tomorrow” — title track from the band’s “best work yet,” according to guitarist and vocalist Molly Rose — encapsulates the trio of ladies’ proclivity for slow and sultry compositions, more animated moods also shine through the predominantly heavy subject matter. “We are all introspective women, and we are inspired by the world within us and around us — from Western landscapes to love and loss,” says banjoist Eleanor Underhill. “Beyond that, we write about the day-to-day and how to stay grounded and happy in a busy world.” North Carolina roots outfit Tyler Nail Trio opens the band’s CD-release show at The Grey Eagle on Saturday, June 27, at 9 p.m. $10/$12.
