"R.I.S.E. (formally 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..."
(To those of you who have watched our music grow for the last several years, THANKYOU. We have been learning our own voices. We are using this pause in movement to unite with a global mission that is much greater than any of us alone. The name change is an indication of our own transformation in space, mission, drive, ideals, voice and sound. R.I.S.E.
:::perhaps Revolutionary Indigenous Sound Experience. Maybe Righteous Increments of Soul Evolution... The space however has been set for the growth to follow, and the sound will continue to change as we continue to evolve. Our purpose is to wade in the waters of truth and keep building through this massive bridge of art ... To use our voices as a way to heal, the stage as a platform for transformation, the floor as a place to connect people to people, our ears as a way make a new media heard, and our communities as a way to re-envision our reality. We have decided to rewrite the script instead of taking our parts blindly... Please join us as the tribe grows and grows in its prowess, as we are each a part of this delicate puzzle...)
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. (We are also joining political street theater events, creating with artists and projects across oceans, studying dance and yoga and movement, getting new tattoos, working on recording collaborations, traveling to South America, Africa, India, and the moon, volunteering for international justice projects, writing poetry on the back of scrap napkins, doing a backlog of laundry, reorganizing dusty bookshelves, and learning new languages and new peoples every day...) Please see below for more info, and keep your ears open as we continue to journey...limited edition live album due out in October...
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 tacking 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.

BIO:::Sisters Leah and Chloe grew up bouncing between the streets of Atlanta''s concrete jungle and the southern Appalachian foothills. Born in a family overflowing with music and art, they were raised with old-time mountain melodies as their lullabies, and their young veins full of the base of underground hip hop and spoken word movements of the urban South. R.I.S.E. (Rising Appalachia) stays true to their deep love of storytelling, poetry, lyricism, ballads, hip hop, jazz, blues, soul, folk, and roots music from around the https://www.tradebit.comy create sound-scapes out of life moments, and journey with each step.
