Multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter Larry Campbell
Multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter Larry Campbell and singer-guitarist Teresa Williams’ acclaimed eponymous 2015 debut, released after seven years of playing in Levon Helm’s band – and frequent guesting with Phil Lesh, Little Feat, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, brought to the stage the crackling creative energy of a decades-long offstage union. A whirlwind of touring and promo followed, and when the dust cleared, the duo was ready to do it all again. Which brings us to Contraband Love, a riskier slice of Americana.
With a sound that draws from the Folk, Americana, and Indie-Rock worlds, Under the Oak’s music is honest, approachable, and has been described as “…The Head and the Heart with less martial force and more mellow musing.” – Odd Nugget. Under the Oak’s Adam Monaco, Maggie Pope, Chris Peace and Peter Oswald perform their soul-grabbing tunes with heart, crafting a sound that has attracted a loyal and enthusiastic local following. Their debut album, Big Sky (April 2018) shares tunes that stay true to their live-performance style – rich in vocal harmonies and intimate lyrics – songs that play like life put to music.
