Biography

Rising Appalachia is a genre-bending force of sound that uses both lyrical prowess and diverse artistic collaborations to defy cultural cliches and ignite a musical revolution

Sisters Leah and Chloe grew up bouncing between the streets of Atlanta’s concrete jungle and the southern Appalachian foothills. Born to a fiddlin’ mother and a folk-sculptor father, they were raised with old-time mountain melodies as their lullabies, and their young veins pumping red with underground hip hop and spoken word movements of the urban South.

RISE’s eerie banjo originals, gritty lyrics, mournful fiddle, and effortless sister harmonies are compared to that of Ani Difranco, CocoRosie, and Zap Mama.
Their sound is sparse and traditional, with a wide variety of instruments that includes banjo, fiddle percussion, trumpet, beat boxing, xylophone, standup base ect .

“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 this 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 nonsense, political rage, symphonic coercing, ferocious bantering, cycles and train tracks, primal will, fresh air intoxicants, harmony and alliteration, noise and something sweeter than words can ever touch”.
