THE AIN’T SISTERS
Atlanta’s Dynamos of Indie Rock
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 Indie Rock.
The power duo fronting this outfit, composed of Arrie Bozeman and Barb Carbon, blends tight harmonies and smart lyrics with soulful, booty-shakin’ melodies. 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 official venture. Together, their musical influences range from Patty Griffin to Prince and from Lucinda Williams to Rage Against the Machine. 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.
With the addition of Justin Boudreau on bass, John Cowin on drums, Ian Klin on Keys, and guest appearances by Chris “Critter” Ricker on transcendental electric guitar, Mario Raygmusic Gant on the tenor sax, Brad Bauman on harmonica, and Richie Jones on percussion, The Ain’t Sisters have matured and expanded and have earned their place as one of Atlanta’s premier original acts.
Their long awaited and much anticipated debut studio album, “Marrow,” was released November 23, 2018.
Perfect harmony in motion
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.
