About Rising Appalachia: Sisters Leah Song and Chloe Smith tear into sound with sensual prowess as stages ignite revolutions and words light up soul fires. Listen to their beautiful sound for banjo and fiddle duets and poetic harmonies like only sisters can do… Joined full-time by their beloved band, Biko Casini on percussion, and David Brown on stand up bass and baritone guitar, expect everything from folk standards to jazz, to New Orleans soul, to old mountain traditionals, to activist anthems, as their style redefines folk music as a truly living art. Using sound as a tool to spark a cultural revolution and birth a new movement, come join them as they create soul sounds for us all....
About Birds Of Chicago: Their brand of rock and roll poetry can be a little hard to categorize for people insisting on categorizing . . . their voices are undoubtedly the centerpiece. Nero’s fractured country soul croon is wrapped in Russell’s silver and gold tones for a harmony blend like nothing else in music today. Fired by the band, it’s a full tilt revival – streamlined poems, deep grooves, sharp hooks and joyful singing straight from the gut.
About Elby Brass: Horn players in particular are often treated as an afterthought being called upon at the last minute for high-profile gigs or recording sessions. Here was a chance for the marginalized to step up and shine in all their glory. The heavy horn funk might catch you in the club or in your own backyard. All the world's a stage and ELBY is front and center, just look for the purple and gold.
