We are the night and you are bound to boogie. Floors may be broken but hearts will be mended.
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, rockabilly, and country. They released their first album, “Prepare Your Throats,” in the fall of 2018. 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.” They released their second album May 2020, “Desperate Times on the New Hampshire State Line,” a whimsical collection of foot stompin’, hand clappin’, spirited cross-genre tunes. Their third album, “livin aint cheap, dyin aint free” was just released July 2022. Now available for purchase on Vinyl, CD, and streaming on all the streamers.
They will be heading back into the studio to record their new children’s album, “Children of the Grim.” A neo-gothic musical play of original and traditional children’s stories, nursery rhymes, and folk songs which had its theatrical workshop premiere in May 2022 at The Players’ Ring Theatre.
