Overman / Bio

Overman's sound hints at the alt-country and/or dirty-pop sensibilities of the Stones, the storytelling of American folk (we care a LOT about our lyrics), with the occasional personality of Delta Blues, soaked in rye. A melodic cocktail that has led fans, contemporaries, and professionals to make comparisons to everyone from Dylan w/The Band to Zappa to (earlier) Wilco.

Influences include sharing pots of tea and coffee, old Guild and Martin guitars, writing, goating, John Prine, mornings, John Prine mornings, mountains, singing, rocks in our shoes, holes in our pockets, gathering no moss, Sagan, books, thrift stores, record shopping, TVZ, music, Widow's Peak, ponds and rivers and lakes and streams, Ray Charles, Leather Gallery journals & staying up all night.

Overman has been featured on WGN-TV’s Nationally Televised Midday News, in Skeptic Magazine, by NPR, on AMC’s Emmy winning television show ‘Breaking Bad’ and on WXRT in Chicago. Their song ‘Evolution Rocks’ is officially endorsed by the National Science Teachers Association, and has been used as a teaching supplement in countless classrooms all over the nation.

Overman’s first release, The Evolution EP, features the single “Evolution Rocks,” a much-blogged-over ode to Darwin that’s become an anthem for science teachers nationwide and overseas and has received the endorsement of The National Science Teachers Association.

Overman's 2011 release, the critically acclaimed "The Future is Gonna Be Great" is now available on iTunes, and has been opening previously locked doors. They're currently recording their 2nd full-length at Uptown Recording in Chicago; it will be available for the 2013 holiday season.
