ODESZA is a production duo made up of Harrison Mills (Catacombkid) and Clayton Knight (BeachesBeaches) based out of the Pacific Northwest. They met their senior year of college and decided to spend the summer as recent graduates collaborating on an album. On September 5th, 2012 they self-released a free LP entitled “Summer’s Gone”, creating a delicate balance between dreamy sun trickled melodies, glitched out vocals, crunchy drums and large sweeping basslines. To much critical acclaim, "Summer's Gone" has had more than 1.6 million streams on SoundCloud and gained ODESZA a diverse and loyal fan base.

Sisters Leah and Chloe tear into sound with sensual prowess as stages ignite revolutions and words light up spirit fires. Listen to their beautiful sound for poetic harmonies, soul singing, spoken word rallies, banjos, fiddles, many beats of drums, kalimbas, washboard rants, groove, and community building through SOUND. Joined by Imhotep on the New Orleans bass drum, Abram on contra bass, and Forrest on the beats, their style redefines performance. With a host of versatile collaborators on board expect anything from trumpet to beatboxing, poets to trapeze, and circus to burlesque. Rising Appalachia uses sound as a tool to spark a cultural evolution and birth a new movement, creating soul sounds for us all....
Having toured over 14,000 miles across the United States and gracing many stages around the world, Rising Appalachia’s vision and sound is quickly proving to be contagious to everyone it touches.

They are creatively committed to keeping their work accessible at the local street level as well as expanding to larger audiences abroad, and have continued to maintain autonomy by self-managing, recording, producing, creating, and directing their work. They are greatly honored to do the work that they do.
