Ari & Mia
"Strikingly beautiful, distinctive and exhilarating, with expressive vocals that will find a way into hearts and minds" (No Depression), Ari & Mia reference the styles of Southern and Northeastern fiddle music and the early American songbook to create a realm where their own compositions cross paths with older traditions.
Their stylish and sophisticated music honors the sounds of Appalachian cottages, rural dance floors, and urban concert halls. Combine this with their innovative approach to songwriting and the result is a captivating sound.
"Ari & Mia are not creating a new music; they are taking it to another level and exploring areas that have not been attempted in decades. Their all-acoustic, pure and honest approach has significance. Treading the edges of traditional folk in a more faithful manner, they share the lyrical wizardry of 70's bands Steeleye Span, Tir-na-Nog, and the Incredible String Band, with searing harmony as good as The Beach Boys. The sisters sing in unison like two violins," continues No Depression on the review of "Out of Stone." Their two previous albums, "Land on Shore" and "Unruly Heart," ranked high on the national folk radio charts. They've just released a brand new record, Sew the City.
