Rising Appalachia – die Schwestern Chloe Smith and Leah Song – senden dieser Tage ihre neue Single „Stand Like An Oak“ in die Corona-geplagte Welt, die uns an unsere Standhaftigkeit und tiefe Verwurzlung mit der Erde erinnern soll. „Now, in the time of corona, we are seeing the necessary roles of music and healing practices in our abilities to see through this pandemic and stay steady on our course of compassion and strength,“ erzählt Chloe. „I wrote this song for a loved one going through the wave and arc of depression and anxiety, someone whom I wanted to sing a reminder to, to find her roots and footing when the wind blows strong. Mental health is a gripping mountain for so many people to climb, and this song honors that journey as well as the people who pull us up out of it“. Die Single könnt ihr hier erwerben.
