Black Undercurrent hails from Boston. The founding members, Chase and J Bird, moved to Los Angeles and spent the next few years touring Southern California and the surrounding area.
Black Undercurrent became a full band in 2009 under the name Black Current and hit the studio with the legendary Sylvia Massy (Tool, RHCP, System of a Down, Prince, Johnny Cash, R.E.M., Tom Petty, et al.) to record a three song demo. The band went on tour to promote the demo throughout 2009.
In 2010, the founding members decided to go back to their roots as a duo. Their decision paid off, and in 2010 Black Current hooked up with two very talented filmmakers who ultimately filmed the video for their song, "THE WELL".
Upon completion of the video , the duo made another geographic move - this time to Austin,Tx where due to copyright reasons changed the name to Black Undercurrent.
The move to Austin proved fruitful with the addition of another full band. They are know seen performing around Texas as both a full band and as a duo.
