Well, you all have been asking for it...and we are responding!!!
HERE IT IS!!! Rising Appalachia is producing and funding their 5th album!!! With the FULL BAND!!!!!!
That's right,# 5 ! That means all your favorite sister harmonics PLUS stand up bass, lots of hand persussion (including congas, djembe, boudrhan, shekere, high hat, Bass Drum, and more), brass (trumpet, saxaphone), and a cello!!! This one is going to be concocted in all sorts of new and exciting ways that will continue to push the boundaries of harmonic exploration. AND showcase the energy of our live shows! Lots of new songs ! Intimate "in studio" audience nestled in the embrace of our dear southern Appalachia. We are capturing a "pre"-apocalyptic record (woah thats deep!!) that will exude the rich sounds of collected world harmonies from our many journeys, jazz funk bass, songs sung to the mighty Mississippi river, cryptic "break your heart" love ballads, Afro-Cuban New Orlenian Kachina-doll rhythms, hoots and holla's, and banjo fiddle front porch serenades all sewed into one aural package.....
Having self-produced and self-funded our previous 4 albums, we are looking to step this recording up a notch in both pre and post production including covering performance costs for band and guest musicians, travel costs, in studio mixing and mastering time, as well as commissioned hand painted album art, new video additions, and endless creative input and collaborations! We want this album to fully and finally capture the rawkus raw energy of Rising Appalachia LIVE ...in all of its entirety. Please help us make this happen and be a part of the grassroots movement of our music!!!!!!!
Kickstarter will make this so much more of a reality, bringing US into the studio -and bringing YOU a NEW full length album. Please spread our sound and story to those you know so that we can remain independently funded, supported, financed and managed. WE DO ALL THIS OURSELVES (no record lables, no booking agencies, and no external management!) and we are so proud to keep it that way!!! We are honored to do the work we do, and hope to keep driving our own ship!.....
p.s. and the rewards !!! Oh, the rewards !
