"Rising Appalachia is a genre-bending force of sound that uses vocal harmony, lyrical prowess and diverse artistic collaborations to defy cultural clich├ęs and ignite a musical revolution..."

BIOGRAPHY

Sisters Leah and Chloe tear into sound with sensual prowess as stages ignite revolutions and words light up spirit fires.  Listen to their beautiful sound for poetic harmonies, soul singing, spoken word rallies, banjos, fiddles, many beats of drums, kalimbas, washboard rants, groove, and community building through SOUND. Joined by Imhotep on the New Orleans bass drum, Abram on contra bass, and Forrest on the beats, their style redefines performance. With a host of versatile collaborators on board expect anything from trumpet to beatboxing, poets to trapeze, and circus to burlesque. Rising Appalachia uses sound as a tool to spark a cultural evolution and birth a new movement, creating soul sounds for us all....

Having toured over 14,000 miles across the United States and gracing many stages around the world, Rising Appalachia's vision and sound is quickly proving to be contagious to everyone it touches. Their shows have included and array of community-run venues and collective events, as well as the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, National Public Radio All Songs Considered, The School of Americas Vigil, Nunez Arts Festival New Orleans, Emory University Schwartz Center, The Floyd Festival, The Beacon Theater NYC, The Lake Eden Arts Festival, Radio Popular Italy, Guerilla Radio Amsterdam, The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, The Highlander Center 75th Reunion, and many more.

Their prolific self-sculpted career has included 4 independently released full length albums which have sculpted a path for the new generation of music aficionados and created a new lens to understand the impact of global sound on the world at large. Having been raised in the American South soul music for breakfast and Appalachian lullabies at night, sisters Leah and Chloe have drawn great inspiration from their global family. Their mother and father claimed art and music as a fully expressed part of their lives and the girls have been shaped by the sounds of the South. They and their dedicated musical comrades have continued to use those powerful roots to find musical connections and community around the world

"Music is the tool with which we wield political prowess. Melody for the roots of each of us...spreading song and sound around the globe. Music has become our script for vision, not for aural pleasure, not just for hobby, but now as a means to connect and create in ways that we aren't taught by mainstream culture. We are building community and tackling social injustice through melody, making the stage reach out with octopus arms to gather a great family. It is taking its own personality, carrying us all along the journey down the damp and strange alley ways and cryptic coded pathways to poetic observations, social change, lyrical messages, political rage, symphonic coercing, ferocious bantering, bicycles and train tracks, primal will, fresh air intoxicants, harmony and alliteration, noise and something sweeter than words can ever touch. " Leah.
