Four-piece, all-female band Violet and the Undercurrents have been described as “..Sophisticated folk-rockers ..” (Columbia Daily Tribune) The Columbia, Mo.-based power house of inventive and creative energy pulls influences from several genres of music and artists, such as The Local Natives, Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, Ani Difranco, Bob Dylan, Billie Holiday, and St. Vincent. With such varied inspirations, it’s hard to peg their sound to one genre. From classically trained vocalist, Violet Vonder Haar, Phylshawn Johnson’s and Linda Bott’s years of jazz and indie rock involvement, to Suzuki cellist Caitlin Lukin, the girls bring a lot to the musical table.
Violet and the Undercurrents released their first full-length album, “Hour After Hour” on the Nation of Love record label in July of 2013. The Undercurrents have played to audiences in over 10 US States and countless cities across the country. Most recently, the Undercurrents successfully funded a Kickstarter campaign for a month-long tour through the Western U.S. in April and released their newest full length album, “WAVES”.
