Ticketfly Backstage Amplifier says
Chicago-based trio, Moonrise Nation, creates music that is both heartfelt and honest, with orchestral elements and vocal hooks that reflect a measured combination of Americana roots and indie-pop drive. Growing up in Oak Park, IL, sisters Eva and Arden Bee and lifelong friend Emma McCall draw inspiration from the timeless yet revolutionary legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright and his literary contemporaries like Ernest Hemingway.

Three distinct voices not only sing their songs, but shape them. As young girls, Eva and Arden watched their parents perform in Chicago’s jazz scene while learning classical and disciplined skills on keys and strings. Emma, a true rock and roll soul, begged her parents to sign her up for drum lessons after seeing a Fleetwood Mac concert and soon after picked up the guitar. These multi-instrumental talents and songwriting voices combined with variety of influences across genres and decades like Carole King, Johnny Cash, Sufjan Stevens, Lorde and Feist, contribute to a cozy yet fresh sound that is uniquely Moonrise Nation’s.

Their 2014 self-titled EP, recorded under the direction of Prince and the Revolution’s Bobby Z, earned them a spot touring with Malaysian singer-songwriter Yuna and shows at iconic venues such as Summerfest, Electric Forest Music Festival, Lincoln Hall, First Avenue, and Stubb's. Live performances stacked with lush 3-part harmonies and textured licks on guitar, piano and cello provide an intimate listening experience. Their forthcoming debut album, "Glamour Child," produced by Stephen Shirk (best known for his live sessions with artists such as Alabama Shakes, The Lumineers, and First Aid Kit) has been more than 3 years in the making. A mature and eclectic sound with developed lyrics and bolder arrangements, “Glamour Child” represents a coming-of-age collection that deals with issues of loss, love, and discovering identities as three millennial women entering adulthood.

In celebration of sisterhood and honoring our female ancestors, artwork by Eva and Arden’s grandmother, who also created the cover image for their album, will be featured throughout their performance.
