Self-described as “bloody folk,” Bitter Pill is a tight-knit family, (literally father and daughter) who play a dark and anachronistic twist of folk, blues, jazz, and vaudeville – mixed with original spoken word as well as reading from classical literature. 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.”

“Exhilarated. Stimulated.” NHPR

“Prepare Your Throats is intriguing, creative, humorous, raw and not all that wholesome. Two mighty severed thumbs up.” Modspoke.com

“There’s a lot to love about this record.” Chris Hislop

Nominated for 2019 Song of the Year and Best New Act of the Year by the New England Music Awards.
