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” released in 2022, is available for purchase on Vinyl, CD, and streaming on all the streamers.

Nominated for 2018 Song of the Year and Best New Act of the Year by the New England Music Awards; and for 2021 Best Live Act by Best in NH - the band has been described in NH Magazine as performing “smart, dramatic, visual, evocative compositions that cross genres and casts shades of Tom Waits and Shane MacGowan.” 

BITTER PILL features Emily Butler (Vocals, Ukulele), Billy Butler (Vocals, Cello, Guitar, Accordion, Piano), Tomer Oz (Acoustic Guitar), Fury (Mandolin, Sax), Jon McCormack (Electric Guitars) and Dave Hamilton (Drums).
