Bitter Pill

Self-described as “rhythm and bluegrass,” Bitter Pill is a tight-knit family, (literally father and daughter) who play a dark and anachronistic twist of folk, blues, jazz, and vaudeville – mixed with original spoken word as well as reading from classical literature. They released their first album, “Prepare Your Throats,” in the fall of 2018. It is a collection of traditional and original songs from the soundtrack of their staging of William Shakespeare’s violent, bloody, grotesquely ridiculous abomination of a play, “Titus Andronicus.”
Their new album, “Desperate Times on the New Hampshire State Line”, due out June 2020 is a whimsical collection of foot stompin’, hand clappin’, spirited cross-genre tunes.

“Exhilarated. Stimulated.” NHPR

“Prepare Your Throats is intriguing, creative, humorous, raw and not all that wholesome. Two mighty severed thumbs up.” Modspoke.com

“There’s a lot to love about this record (Prepare Your Throats).” Chris Hislop

Nominated for 2019 Song of the Year and Best New Act of the Year by the New England Music Awards.
