Wishing Chair

WISHING CHAIR This Kentucky-based duo is songwriter/guitarist Kiya Heartwood (formerly of Stealin Horses) and multi-instrumentalist Miriam Davidson. From 500-year old ballads to driving folk originals, Wishing Chair walks with its feet planted firmly in the living tradition while adding the best influences of popular and world music. WC was chosen as one of the first artists released on the Indiegrrl IGR record label. They have 3 CD's out including Singing with the Red Wolves 1996, Undisputed Country in 1998 and The Ghost of Will Harbut in 2000.

"Wishing Chair creates shimmery folk-pop of the highest order. Whether offering up soaring roots rock, foot-stompin' Nashville swing, or epic heartland balladry, Wishing Chair never fails to create that exhilarating sense one gets when great melodies, strong harmonies, and superb execution come together." - INDEPENDENT SONGWRITER
