ANTIGONE RISING, the all female Country/Rock band, will be performing at the Berkeley Cafe in Raleigh, NC on Tuesday, Nov 13, 2012 with Country artist, JEN FOSTER. ANTIGONE RISING exploded onto the spotlight in 2005 becoming the first band on Starbuck's Hear Music (Lava Records) with their best selling debut LP. A lineup change brought Nini Camps to the band, whose voice blends perfectly with the signature style soaring three part harmonies of founding sisters Kristen Henderson (bass /vocals), Cathy Henderson (lead guitar /vocals) and Dena Tauriello (drums), that ANTIGONE RISING has become known and loved for. The band's latest CD, "23 Red" continues to turn heads as their themes abound with songs that speak to the full range of emotions and life. The band has opened for such acts as The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, Rob Thomas, and The Bangles, and are favorites in Festivals around the country.
Recently, ANTIGONE RISING traveled to Israel and The West Bank as Arts Envoys for the U.S. State Department. During their trip, Antigone Rising performed in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Ramallah and other regional cities, leading community outreach workshops and making music with Israeli and Palestinian musicians demonstrating once again that all cultures can achieve peace and understanding through good old rocking music.
JEN FOSTER recently released her newest EP, "You Stayed" in Nashville this September at 12th & Porter. The EP is a dedication to her fans who have continued to help the native Texan achieve independent success. FOSTER regularly sells out shows across the country and runs her own label Fosterchild Records. The special bond FOSTER has created with her fans through live shows and the use of social media has helped build a career that is the envy of many major label artists. FOSTER and her team tapped into that energy to spread the word about her latest project. “You Stayed is a love letter to my fans” says FOSTER. The entire recording is a tribute to the fans that have not only stayed, but supported Foster through the ups and downs of a music career. The track “Venice Beach,” the theme to Emmy award-winning web series “Venice: The Series,” is being given away as a FREE DOWNLOAD directly from FOSTER's website, http://www.jenfoster.com/
