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. 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.

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. Now available for purchase and streaming on all the streamers.

Their third album, livin aint cheap, dyin aint free, will be released this summer and 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 will have its theatrical premiere in May at The Players’ Ring Theatre.
