“MOXXI = BADASS!!!”
By: Krysta Kearney
Moxxi had the opportunity to chat with Brooklyn, NY based singer/songwriter Arleigh Kincheloe, the front woman of the critically acclaimed band, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds. Their fusion of soul, rock and funk has gained a well respected reputation across the country. Having formed the band with her brother at the age of 18, she learned from a young age what it takes to be a fearless female. For well over a decade now, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds have played 1000’s of shows including widely knows festivals such as Bonnaroo and Austin City Limits. Their most recent Album, Gold (released in 2018) features a different style music then past albums. The pop and soul vibe amplifies Kincheloe’s vocals with a new and energizing approach. Between building a successful band, being a leading lady and having recently become a mother to two, Kincheloe has a whole lot of Moxxi. Her bold ambitions and courageous attitude is truly an inspiration. Kincheloe shared with us a bit of where her drive comes from. So, lets learn from her, maybe we can bring some of that Moxxi into our own lives! So what does Sister Sparrow have to say?!
