Volcanoes in the Kitchen is a band based out of Charleston, SC, that focuses primarily on the healing and empowering qualities of music.
Music crosses through all cultures and brings strangers together. It’s the ultimate weapon in the war against unhappiness, the vehicle that transports us out of our minds and into the heart of something deeper than our own hearts. It takes us on strolls through city streets, sidewalk cafés, and oceanfront parks; it sails us across foreign seas to ancient mountains and crumbling castles, or can place you in a small living room filled with the warmth of a fire and the loved ones that huddle around it. This is the core of Volcanoes in the Kitchen. They want to take you places.
The name: There are many different fables of the name Volcanoes in the Kitchen: some say it was birthed from the band’s enthusiasm for randomocity and eclecticism, others from the age-old idea of the kitchen as the heart of the home and volcanoes being… well the explosion coming out of the heart. You could even go as far as saying the varied landscapes their music takes you to could range from volcanoes in a foreign land to the kitchen of your own home. The beauty of their name is that it, much like their songs, can be adapted to fit your interpretation.
