Rising Appalachia
Rising Appalachia
Sisters Leah and Chloe grew up in the Southern United States, but have spent years traveling the world inspired by international roots music. As a result they project a sensual prowess onto the stage & ignite their fans with every live performance. Their unique and beautiful sound is illuminated through poetic & soulful vocals, spoken word, and an eclectic array of instrumentation including banjos, fiddles, various drums, kalimbas, & beatboxing.
As an intentionally self-managed and produced act for the past six years they have released five albums, a full length documentary DVD & have been featured on national radios programs such as NPR's "All Songs Considered." Rising Appalachia has appeared at some of most renowned national and international festivals including Burning Man, Lightning in a Bottle, Symbiosis Gathering, Joshua Tree Music Festival, Envision Festival, Ozara Festival in Hungary, & The Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Hope For Agoldensummer
Hope For Agoldensummer
Hope For Agoldensummer is a family band from the fine Southern town of Athens, Georgia. For nearly 13 years, they've traveled the USA in a variety of busted automobiles. Their sparse arrangements are both angelic & rusty, using slide guitar, banjo, and a bowed handsaw, all overlaid with the powerful sibling-soul-choir harmonies of Claire & Page Campbell. They are part junkyard orchestra & part campfire song circle. The music is exotic, ethereal, fragile – full of childlike wonderment. The sisters write songs similarly to how Flannery O'Connor or Cormac McCarthy wrote prose: Barren yet evocative, ethereal and eloquent, built about invigorating imagery, and utterly transfixing. That last one's due in part — perhaps in whole — to the Campbell's majestic voices. Over the years Hope For Agoldensummer has released 4 albums & several EPs and their tunes have scored several independent films, such as Off The Black (starring Nick Nolte) and D'Artagnan (starring a horse).

"Hope For Agoldensummer has a knack for crafting gorgeous and often complex refrains, supported by utterly captivating arrangements."–NPR All Songs Considered
