brief Awakening / Bio

brief Awakening is a tribe of fairy creatures from Asheville NC who can only effectively communicate through song and dance. Mandolin, alto sax, ethereal vocals, synth, heart drums and harmonious overtones swirl, bubble,and trail wherever brief Awakening wanders.

Ryn Arrants magically dances with strange synth noises spacially mixed with rhythmic piano whilst Lisa Santini engages the audience with whipping tendrils of sax melodies. The tiny beast that is Kara Petrucci stomps on the kick drum at the same time as flying around on her red dragon mandolin.

brief Awakening has been featured live on UnRegular Radio (Boston, MA) , City Wide Blackout (Boston, MA) ,Three Strange Women (Boston, MA), and Daddy O Radio (Spartanburg, SC). Numerous venues and festivals across the east coast have been graced by their strange and haunting presence including Jack of the Wood, The Mill Room, 4 College, and Asheville Bonfires for Peace festival. brief Awakening is currently recording their sophomore album "Feathers and Dust" with Ah Mythology Records to be released in the Fall of 2014.
