Biography

After over 3 years of playing together as a quintet, Long Island NY-based band The OverUnder has gradually morphed into the rock solo project of singer/songwriter Jimmy Connors. Since it's inception back in the summer of 2007, TOU has made a recognizable name for itself from playing shows all over the Northeast to garnering a favorable following via the internet.

The debut EP, "First Come, First Served", brought the band into the national spotlight. The OverUnder was nominated for an mtvU Woodie Award which recognizes the best music across college campuses nationwide. Soon after, Alternative Press Magazine featured TOU in the AP&R section of their December 2009 issue - a monthly installment that showcases buzzing unsigned artists. The record also peaked in the Top 20 of highly popular online music store Smartpunk

Amidst the notariaty of FCFS, which sports an array of anthemy Pop Punk tracks, were a collection of written songs that had yet to be introduced...some of which would probably fly a lot better in a local coffee shop than a sweaty mosh pit. Without the proper platform to release them, they remained on the shelf...but after several key lineup departures, Connors instead saw the negative as an opportunity to bring some different material to the forefront.

Influenced early on by acts like Third Eye Blind and The Goo Goo Dolls, Connors became inspired to tap into a new sound branching slightly away from the faster/edgier one that has solely characterized the band thus far. His latest effort, "Invisible Ink", is a melodic mix of both Pop/Alternative rock and acoustic-infused songs. To produce the record, TOU enlisted the services of up and coming Florida producer Steven Howell to help capture the overall feel.

"Invisible Ink" is a true representation of artistic growth. Due for a winter release, it is sure to be music that both old and new TOU fans will take something from.
