History

As veteran musicians of the Northampton indie music scene, the five members of Winterpills formed from a group of friends "hanging out at Dennis [Crommett]'s house" into a band in the winter of 2003. They began playing out regionally in New England the following spring, and released their eponymous album in 2005. Winterpills was received warmly by critics—garnering comparisons to The Byrds, Simon and Garfunkel, and Elliott Smith—and landed in the Top 100 for both iTunes and Amazon.com. The band carved out a sound characterized by acoustic folk-pop, male-female harmonies, and melancholic songwriting by Price.

Their albums have received high praise by The New York Times, Washington Post, No Depression, The Utne Reader, USA Today, Paste Magazine, Mojo, The Village Voice, and the Boston Globe, among others They have shared the stage with Grant-Lee Phillips, Vampire Weekend, St. Vincent, Cake, Lisa Germano, Syd Straw, Juana Molina, Ladybug Transistor, The Mountain Goats, Crowded House, Erin McKeown, Fountains of Wayne, Alejandro Escovedo, Rainer Maria, Martha Wainwright, Josh Ritter among others. While touring extensively the band played Mountain Stage on NPR, and were featured on NPR's Weekend Edition and World Café, and XM Radio's Loft Sessions.
