Rising Appalachia brings to the stage a collection of sounds, stories, and songs steeped in tradition and a devotion to world culture. Intertwining a deep reverence for folk music and a passion for justice, they have made it their life’s work to sing songs that speak to something ancient yet surging with relevance. Whether playing at Red Rocks or in rail cars, at Italian street fairs or to Bulgarian herbalists, this fiercely independent band has blazed a unique and colorful path across the globe. 11 years into their movement, Rising Appalachia believes that the roots of all these old songs are vital to our ever evolving soundscape. ~ Official Bio.
“Recorded in a south Nashville apartment and produced by Landry himself, the album pitches its tent in the four-way intersection between Dylan-inspired folk-rock, atmospheric Americana, dusty cowboy songs and street busker ballads. Landry gets a little help from his friends along the way, duetting with British folkie Laura Marling on the lush, lovely “Take This Body” and recruiting fellow Nashville transplant Robert Ellis to add some mariachi-inspired fretwork to “Fennario.” The result is a record that’s too far removed from Old Crow Medicine Show’s old-time rave-ups to stand in that band’s shadow — and probably too good, too.” ~ Rolling Stone Country.
“For as interesting a man as Landry is, his ability to expertly weave through well-worn themes of love and loss in a way that reinvents the musical wheel still comes across as astounding… from opening number “Funeral In My Heart” to the aforementioned closing track, Gill Landry proves that its namesake still isn’t without a sense of innovation after his thus-far 17 years in the business. Better yet, the album proves that, like a fine wine, Landry has only improved with age and experience.” ~ Popmatters.
