About The Band
The Ultra is an American rock band whose electric live show turns any venue into a party. Founded by former country singer Alec MacGillivray in 2018, the band set out to fill a void in mainstream music by designing an anthemic sound that combines powerful vocals, soaring guitars and an exhilarating rhythm section. Their critically acclaimed debut The Ultra - EP reached the Top 10 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, and their music has been embraced by country and rock audiences alike.
They were soon discovered by LA producer Courtney Ballard of MDDN Co (Good Charlotte, All-time Low, 5 Seconds of Summer) and quickly became the premier act of New England, opening for national country and rock acts, headlining a summer concert series at Foxwoods Resort Casino as well as clubs along the east coast. The band is currently touring the east coast and writing material for 2019.
