Leah Song is a storyteller, song-catcher, musician, poet, and activist known for her role as front woman of Rising Appalachia with her sister Chloe Smith. She incorporates sultry vocals, rhythm, banjo, guitar, ballads, dance, spoken-word and storytelling into her work. Her music is based in the traditions of Southern soul and international roots music. Song engages in social activism and is involved with the environment, food justice, human rights and prisons. She has studied and worked alongside some of the greatest teachers of our time... including Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Martin Shaw, Joanna Macy, Charles Eisenstein, Winona LaDuke, Sobunfu Some, and Rosemary Gladstar... Gathering tools and teachings of resilience, mythology, grief, creative ritual, and rewilding.
Drew LaPlante is an original heartsong artist and co-founder of Awake. He shares his heart through his music with no filter and deep sincerity. In these sharings he creates an atmosphere that encourages listeners to live fully and freely from that open heart space. His upbeat beach-folk and original medicine songs inspire human connection and exalt the values of beauty, freedom and love.
