Exclusive Premiere: Rising Fawn (Eisley’s Chauntelle DuPree), ‘Ours for Taking’
Chauntelle DuPree and her siblings have been making music as the indie outfit Eisley since they were kids in the '90s. These days, however, several of the sisters have married and started creating (both offspring and music) with their significant others. Sherri DuPree-Bemis (vocals, guitar) and her husband, Say Anything frontman Max Bemis, started a band called Perma; Stacy Dupree King (vocals, keyboard) and her husband, Mutemath drummer Darren King, worked together on her solo project called Sucre; and now Chauntelle – who plays lead guitar in Eisley – has teamed with her husband, Todd D'Agostino, to form Rising Fawn.
While Chauntelle only sings for Eisley "a little" (according to her Twitter profile), she steps firmly into the spotlight with her side project. Rising Fawn are set to release their debut full-length, Sifting Through Sadness, on Aug. 28 via Rory Records – Max Bemis' imprint on Equal Vision Records. Diffuser is proud to present the first song from the album, "Ours for Taking."
DuPree told us the album should hold a little bit for everyone. "This album is an intimate expression of sadness mixed with glimmers of hope and love," she said. "It's about longing and loss and moving on."
