In Their Words: “‘Apocalachia’ is not only a song on the record, it’s also an imaginary realm I inhabit when wrestling with life’s larger conundrums. When I realized that my beloved Appalachian home was contaminated with chemicals manufactured for warfare, it seemed natural to merge the word ‘apocalypse’ with ‘Appalachia.’ While the subject seems dark to many, I’m simply writing what happens to me and exhibiting willingness to speak of subjects that most would rather avoid. No, it’s not ‘upbeat,’ but it’s real and it contains a message of hope: the earth will heal herself from wounds inflicted by humans. A whole new garden will grow, y’all!” — Valorie Miller
