Rising Appalachia are two sisters whose music both honors and transcends the folk roots style in which it is based. They use their lyrics and voices to speak out about social, economic, and environmental issues, calling for change while promoting love and peace.
Originally from Georgia, they spent time in rural Appalachia working with musicians there to develop their songs, and use traditional and non-traditional elements in their music. Whenever they tour, they work with various environmental groups along the way to promote healthy living and eating, and are dedicated to using music to bring us together to create positive and lasting change.
This song in particular, released two years ago in May 2018, could not be more appropriate to today. The music video itself is such an accurate metaphor to all that is being expressed by the masses right now, and the lyrics seem written just for this moment. We are resilient. We learn to listen. Let us come together now, and roar.
“May art carry us all through hard times. May we learn from these times and re-emerge stronger.”
