About Us

Forged in the murky depths of a Folly Beach holding cell, The Ain’t Sisters have transcended their origins as outlaw street performers to grace the stages of the Southeast with their unique brand of funk-infused, blues-driven Americana.

The duo, composed of Arrie Bozeman and Barb Carbon, blends tight harmonies and smart lyrics with soulful, booty-shakin’ acoustic melodies. Both dynamic musicians and songwriters, they share an equal propensity for irony, humor, ferocity, and heart-on-sleeve authenticity.

With common roots in Atlanta, Georgia, Arrie and Barb have been friends and cohorts for over 10 years, but The Ain’t Sisters is their first venture as a duo. Together, their musical influences range from Patty Griffin to Prince and from Lucinda Williams to Bird Cloud (seriously, check them out!). Their shared belief system is underpinned by the idea of music as community – that it should be fun and bring people together, and that’s exactly what they intend to do! Keep an eye out for The Ain’t Sisters, they might just pop up at your favorite venue, or in your living room, or (preferably) out back around your fire pit. Fair warning – they don’t stop playing until the sun comes up. YAY MUSIC!
