The Rising / Louise Connell / Riley / John Rush on Monday 18th February 2019
The Rising present their 'Moving On Tour 2019.
The Rising can best be described as blending fresh-faced Pop/Rock with Modern Country Stylings fresh from Nashville. The band have just released their 2nd album “Moving On” to great critical acclaim including positive reviews and features with the likes of Guitarist Magazine, Country Music Magazine, Hotpress Magazine, No Depression, The Arts Desk, Yorkshire Times and many more.
The album was recorded between the band’s native Belfast and Nashville (TN) and features musicians such as Chris Brush and Tommy Detamore on Pedal Steel Guitar.
The band have performed at Country 2 Country Festival at London’s O2 (Twice). Toured the UK and Ireland extensively on their own headline tours and have also opened for Ward Thomas, The Shires and Jess & The Bandits.
First single from the album “Rebound” achieved success when it was given a world premiere by US based Country Music Bible ‘The Boot’. The band’s music has also enjoyed heavy radio play and play listing globally, including USA, UK, Europe, Ireland and beyond. Including good support on UK National radio including extensive radio play on the likes of BBC Radio 2, BBC London etc including support from the likes of Graham Norton, Gaby Roslin and Alex Lester. BBC Introducing also named it song of the week on the week of is release.
“Moving On is Country Pop/Rock with Chantelle McAteer’s vocals supported by Logan’s jangly rhythm and strong lead guitar. Hook-laden songs with singalong choruses” - 8/10 - Guitarist Magazine
“Amazing” - Gaby Roslin (BBC Radio London)
“A glorious amalgamation of Rock, Country and Folk' - Jim Gellatly (XFM/Amazing Radio)
When it comes to country-tinged pop-rock songs, there are very few who do it with as much style as Belfast’s The Rising right now. The kind of song which could dent the charts and hearts of the states given the right breaks, fans of the likes of Lady Antebellum and early Taylor Swift will lap this up” - Edwin McFee, Hotpress Magazine
“If your after big songs with big choruses then you could do little better' - R2 Magazine
“Choruses and tunes which aim for anthem status.. The Rising are definitely a band to watch.” - Golden Plec
