Biography

Underclaire has been making music together for more than ten years. They have shared the stage with acts such as Sparta, Living Sacrifice, Local H, Candlebox, Saliva, Corey Glover (Living Colour), Attack! Attack!, and The Kicks to name a few. Consistently putting out albums and playing regionally, they have made a name for themselves as a Little Rock, AR mainstay.

After spending the better part of 2009 in the studio, they released MAKING SKY on January 1st 2010. This 3rd full-length album was recorded at Poynter's Palace with Barry Poynter (2 Minutes Hate, The Julianna Theory, Living Sacrifice, HBO, South Park, etc) filling in on the bass guitar in addition to his usual Engineer/Producer duties. A different approach was applied to this project�it is a concept album that is lush, layered and polished (in comparison with the indie-rockish, stripped, minimal-overdub arrangement of 2004�s SMALLTOWN X). It is the story of twin siblings�brother and sister whose lives and luck take a turn for the worst. The cover art was provided by Canadian artist, Socar Myles (www.gorblimey.com).
