The George Elliot Underground / Bio

The George Elliot Underground is made from fragments of bands broken by time, space and even a fire. But when these five musicians moved into an off-campus house together in 2005, there was no stopping the music that erupted from their basement in late night, alcohol-infused jam sessions. Over the years, the band’s sound matured into a cohesive revival of classic rock with “more electricity than AEP can handle.” (Ben Albaugh)

This young up-and-coming alternative rock act has its heart rooted deep in the soul of classic Rock N Roll. Based out of Columbus, Ohio, they possess an authentic indie midwest swagger. Influences range from classic greats such as the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and the MC5 to the new alternative sounds of the Strokes, Jet, Kings of Leon and the Black Keys. Their sound creates an atmosphere of the 1960's sincerity converging with the hypocrisy of modern day. It unites the volume of the West Coast with the purity of the Midwest. Simple, raw, energetic and full of passion. It's a very familiar sound in a fashion all of it's own.
