The Rising & Danny McMahon on Wednesday 20th February 2019
The Rising can best be described as blending fresh-faced Pop/Rock with Modern Country Stylings fresh from Nashville. The band's style is informed by a wide number of influences. Refusing to be defined by one genre they firmly believe that music is music regardless of what genre tags it happens to have. Taking influence from contemporary Pop, Rock as wells the updated Country Sounds of artists such as Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood,Keith Urban,Kelsea Ballerini and many others. The band are equally at home listening and enjoying top 40 radio and all genres of music. But it’s the band’s love of storytelling lyrics and songs with meaning that inspires their love and affinity with Country Music.
The band name however, comes from a Bruce Springsteen album that has and continues to inspire all members of the band
