The Ain't Sisters
Forged in the murky depths of a Folly Beach holding cell, The Ain’t Sisters have transcended their origins as outlaw street performers to grace the stages of the Southeast with their unique brand of funk-infused, blues-driven Americana.
The duo, composed of Arrie Bozeman and Barb Carbon, blends tight harmonies and smart lyrics with soulful, booty-shakin’ acoustic melodies. Both dynamic musicians and songwriters, they share an equal propensity for irony, humor, ferocity, and heart-on-sleeve authenticity.
With common roots in Atlanta, Georgia, Arrie and Barb have been friends and cohorts for over 10 years, but The Ain’t Sisters is their first venture as a duo. Together, their musical influences range from Patty Griffin to Prince and from Lucinda Williams to Bird Cloud (seriously, check them out!). Their shared belief system is underpinned by the idea of music as community – that it should be fun and bring people together, and that’s exactly what they intend to do! Keep an eye out for The Ain’t Sisters, they might just pop up at your favorite venue, or in your living room, or (preferably) out back around your fire pit. Fair warning – they don’t stop playing until the sun comes up. YAY MUSIC!
Carly Gibson and Hannah Zale have joined forces and they are already leaving their mark on the Georgia music scene as Indie/Alternative Rock supergroup, THE PUSSYWILLOWS (TPW) exploring their self-proclaimed “Tarantino feminism” sound. Individually, these women are exceptionally strong performers and songwriters; together, they are positively formidable. The Pussywillows, in short, are: sweet and savory; sultry and fresh; pure.
The Pussywillows are perfect harmony in motion. Balance is their greatest quality; they weave among one another’s melodies seamlessly. At times during their set, listeners cannot tell who is singing which line, creating an almost subconscious, fascinating game. Their music is beautiful yet haunting. Though sometimes soft, the music always returns the listener to a hard beating pulse surrounded by nasty electric guitar. These best friends push and pull each other and their audiences through intricately constructed sonic spaces. They showcase carefully cultivated lyrics that both evoke and provoke listeners into a daydream wherein they can simultaneously catch cotton candy by sticking out their tongue and stomp proudly through alligator infested swamps in high-heeled leather boots. This duet possesses sass and class and a little something special.
