"UPFROMUNDER Debuts Album"

“Even though some of the tunes on the CD were written during their high school years, listeners will probably be surprised at the maturity and craftsmanship in the 11 songs” (Eddie Glenn, Tahlequah Daily Press)...

...It also exemplifies the diversity of UPFROMUNDER, as Eddie Glenn remarked, “Like any album worth listening to, Love & Do defies categorization.” - Tahlequah Daily Press


LP: Love and Do (2004)
EP: Some Miracle (2009)



When people listen to Up From Under, the first aspect they comment upon is the attention to songwriting. Up From Under's sound and appeal begins with the songs, which stems from the lifelong friendship of co-founders Will Stucky and Luke Rountree, who began writing songs together at the age of 16. The sound is alternative with melodically arranged guitars, wild pianos and organs, and inspired melodies, while displaying a maturity to songwriting. With their first album (critically acclaimed "Love and Do") under their belt, the band has remained focused and determined to continue their march on the music scene. In 2007 Up From Under welcomed the addition of drummer Ryan McGuire, guitarist Jeremy Davidson, and bassist John Freise and entered the studio to record their second album, the EP "Some Miracle." The album was released in 2009. The songs are fresh and original, but still accessible to the radio listener. Up From Under continues to play shows in the Oklahoma region, hitting spots like OKC's Conservatory, The Venue, and UCO's Jazz Lab.
When the guys aren't in the studio, they are performing in Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Tennessee, and Arkansas. The band continues to hit many hotspots in their local area, Oklahoma City (The Conservatory, Convergence, Bricktown Ballroom, the OKC Arts Festival, and UCO Jazz Lab). They have played for 200+ crowds as well as opening and playing with popular artists such as Sherree Chamberlain, Ali Harter, and Matt Stansberry. These latest shows are displaying the band's ability to re-create older songs from "Love and Do," while the new material continues to draw new fans.
