“Rising Appalachia is the aural divinity of two sisters seeped in the deep south flair of harmony, resistance, and poetry” NPR
Sisters Leah & Chloe are the collective voice that leads Rising Appalachia, a melting pot of folk music simplicity, textured songwriting, and those bloodline harmonies that only siblings can pull off. Proudly born and raised in the concrete jungle of Atlanta, Georgia, sharpening their instincts in the mountains of Appalachia, and fine-tuning their soul on the streets of New Orleans they have crafted a 6-album folk-roots career from the dust of their passion.
“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 just 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 wide arms to gather this great family. It has taken on its own personality, carrying us all along the journey. Heres to poetic observations, social change, lyrical messages, political focus, symphonic coercing, ferocious bantering, bicycles and train tracks, primal will, fresh air, harmony, flow, and beautiful noise.”
