Waiting to Exhale is a band fronted by two women vocalists, both daughters of hard working Appalachian families with roots deep and long in the mountains of Virginia. Their songs through their emotional renditions tell a tale of their mountain families’ struggles and joys while blending together a haunting tapestry of harmonies and interplay in their vocals. They take you, the listener, to another place that you don’t ever want to return from. The foundation of that journey is cemented in place by their passionate stand up bass player and their creative journeyman guitarist and banjo player. The heart stops beating, the lungs grasp for breath, and while the song is in the air, you can only wait to exhale.
