Something Underground has been a part of the Colorado music scene since 2000. The band is fronted by brothers Seth and Joshua Larson, who have been performing on stage since they were old enough to speak. Drummer Trevor Mariotti is the perfect backbone of the band, not only for his monster chops and impeccable timing, but also because he intuitively reads and responds to Joshua and Seth’s unspoken musical queues as if he were the third brother.
The members of SUG have deep-rooted connections to music inspired by everyone from The Beatles to Bruno Mars. Their experience and their broad range of musical styles gives them the ability to genuinely connect with people from all walks of life. This is this sense of connection and community that takes their shows from a musical performance to a point of connection.
Among other honors, Something Underground has had the great joy of playing on the Red Rocks stage three times.
The band tours nationally and regularly supports in- and out-of-state non-profits, and their dedication to collaboration, connection and creation doesn’t stop there. The band maintains a genuine and straightforward message of gratitude and love through their music and their connections to fans and other musicians without resorting to syrupy-sweet dogma.
Funded in part by a grant from Colorado Creative Industries, their 2016 “Live” album showcases the energetic stage performances, unique takes on familiar pop songs and surprising way of juxtaposing originals with recognizable covers that Something Underground has become known for. Their 2015 studio EP “Confessions,” a collaboration of Grammy-nominated producer/writer Elan Morrison and Something Underground, is a raw and powerful testament to their musical evolution.
