"Have you ever had a feeling deep inside your gut that something big is about to happen?


Maybe you’ve been warned, and the tension is building… anticipation is growing… it is inescapable. Be it good or be it bad, it will be a relief when whatever is coming from over yonder finally arrives.


It has arrived, and it is Pretty Little Goat’s third studio album -- Big Storm, 10 very satisfying songs that set a new standard for reimagining the roots of Western North Carolina’s native music.


As a collection, Big Storm is a triumph of what makes modern mountain music a favorite for those who want to build on tradition. It is a diverse album that combines both original and traditional storytelling with excellent musicality. It is both epic and personal, and the songs will stay with you, especially as you ponder the beauty and wonder how such music is a product of the place Pretty Little Goat calls home."

Pretty Little Goat is grassroots music at its finest. The band formed in 2013 through their common grounding in the deep well of local tradition found in the mountains of Western North Carolina. As young lovers of old-time music, Pretty Little Goat began winning string band competitions right away. Over the last six years the Goats have collaborated with many well respected local musicians including Jamie Laval, Blake Ellege, members of the Steep Canyon Rangers, Jeff Sipe, Jonathan Grey of Jump Little Children and many others.   


Members of the band are dedicated mentors to the next generation of musicians. Always looking for new and exciting ways to inspire young people, they have been deeply involved in the local JAM (Junior Appalachian Musicians) program, music camps, schools and more.

Pretty Little Goat sees traditional music is a living art form; vibrant and evolving. Their debut self-titled album released in 2016 presents unique interpretations of old-time songs and tunes along with original material. The Goats' second album, "Let The Sun Shine In," is full of groovy original music that is "as close as we will ever be to our past while being as current as we need it to be" (Mike Ashworth, Steep Canyon Rangers)."
