Growing from the fertile musical grounds of nearby Chicago, Overman is the result of four distinct voices and their broad influences, congealing to create a unique and multifaceted, yet popular and accessible, musical identity. Overman has been featured on WGN TVs Nationally Televised Midday News, in Skeptic Magazine, by NPR, on AMCs Emmy winning television show Breaking Bad. Their song Evolution Rocks is officially endorsed by the National Science Teachers Association, and has been used as a teaching supplement in countless countless classrooms all over the nation.
Overman's sound speaks, variously, of the pop sensibilities of the Beatles, of the storytelling of American folk, of alternative rock and of Delta blues. A melodic cocktail that has led fans, contemporaries, and professionals to make comparisons to everyone from The Rolling Stones to Frank Zappa to early Wilco.
