Beauty can be found in the river, in its invigorating turns and its kinetic, renewing flow. These qualities permeate the music of Violet and the Undercurrents, whose sophisticated, affecting folk rock sound tells vibrant stories with graceful arcs.
The Columbia, Missouri-based quartet is anchored by the intrepid songwriting of Violet Vonder Haar and enriched by the creative energy of her musical counterparts. Raised in a small town at the edge of the Missouri River and nurtured by a thriving folk music-centered community, Vonder Haar started honing her craft as a songwriter, performer and vocalist at an early age. She was inspired by her father, a riverboat captain who introduced her to the music of folk legends and encouraged her journey as an artist.
