"Your Scars Are Your Beautiful” is Appalachia Moderna’s 12th single and is out now and is the most acoustic, back-porch tune we've ever released. 


“Your Scars Are Your Beautiful” is about finding strength in our individual challenges and that facing our challenges is a source of strength and was inspired by an article about breast cancer survivors, their struggles, and their efforts to move forward.


"Your Scars Are Your Beautiful" is available on iTunes and all streaming services via Symphonic Distribution.

“Your Scars Are Your Beautiful” has already been picked up by Madden Flow Sync Agency for sync representation:

Soulful vocals, traditional melodies, and slide guitar find harmony in Appalachia Moderna, a collaboration between Jaida James and Jeffrey Scornavacca.


It’s not often that a band’s name perfectly reflects the sound of their music, but in Appalachia Moderna’s case, it fits to a T. Duo Jaida James and Jeff Scornavacca’s melodies would have felt at home with the rich, emotive ballads and blues of centuries past, while the production surprises with edgy slide guitars and bold percussion. Their songs are dramatic and emotional, feeling both vast and intimate at the same time. 


Jaida and Jeff chose "Appalachia Moderna" as their band name as their melody inspiration could have been from a 100 years ago but the production is much more modern. It's a unique combination of words that reflect their unique combination of music.


"Wow. Gorgeous stuff. I love the way you balance sounds and styles in this. It all combines into something bigger than the sum of its parts — and a fabulous backdrop for the beautifully bittersweet and crystalline vocals, which seem to float above the whole affair elegantly. Thanks for sharing this, best of luck and keep up the great work.”
