Exploring Aromatherapy and Essential Oils
Rising Appalachia was founded by sisters Leah and Chloe Smith of Atlanta, Georgia. The sisters work with an array of international musicians and they incorporate a variety of sounds inspired by their world travels merged with the music influences of their own southern roots. Although Leah and Chloe consider their voices as their primary instrument, Leah also plays banjo and bodhran on their newest album Leylines, while Chloe plays guitar, fiddle, and banjo.
