The Understorey


Website // Facebook // Twitter
The Understorey is comprised of the duo of Jessica and Matt McCumons, who have created thoroughly compelling original songs as well as stylized covers by inspirations such Brandi Carlile, Amos Lee, Patty Griffin, and Amy Winehouse. The duo, now backed by a full band, produces upbeat and rhythmic folkrock with country roots. Classically trained and locally bred, Jess’s voice is a powerful, emotionally charged, and rich presence that is always a crowd pleaser. Matt adds dimension to the duo with his warm and percussive acoustic style. Inspired by a love for their home state of Michigan, and all that it has to offer, these two have created evocative and timely tunes with a keen appreciation of the natural world.
