New Album - The Revelator - Out Now


Sweet Undertow is a San Francisco based soul-blues machine designed to shake people out of their seats with a freshness and authenticity rooted in the American folk and blues traditions.

It’s a brand new sound that you've never heard before. 

Sweet Undertow's unchained train rides on into the future - a brand new sound of funked-out folk rock boiled in blues and simmered in shakedowns - Sweet Undertow will shake what your grandmomma gave ya and maybe pull a heartstring or two.

Long, wild years on the road, mixed with a deep base in roots, blues and shakedowns - like Joe Cocker playing with Creedence and the JBs - shaped Sweet Undertow into a modern explosion of new sound. Sweet Undertow has played across America, India, Ukraine, France, Singapore and Vietnam.

The band is led by "Sweet" Eddy Undertow and Sweet Undertow's new album was released in 2019 to critical acclaim, and coincided with sold-out shows at the Lost Church and Hotel Utah in San Francisco.
