The first album to be launched by Starbucks-sponsored Hear Music series, FROM THE GROUND UP is the mainstream debut by the all-female pop-rock outfit Antigone Rising. The band's proper studio debut, DRAMA CLUB, was reputedly ready for release at the time the band inked the Starbucks deal, but FROM THE GROUND UP, a live-in-the-studio recording of acoustic numbers, gave the public the jump on the group's earnest, accessible folk-tinged pop, a sound that puts Antigone Rising on the same trajectory for commercial success as Sheryl Crow, the Indigo Girls, and Alanis Morrissette.
