The Rising are a songwriting and production duo. They are best described as blending the fresh-faced sounds of today’s Pop/Rock with Modern Country Rock Stylings fresh from Nashville. They were based in Leamington Spa, UK for several years. But, due to pressures associated with lockdowns the duo were forced to move back to their native home in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

To date the duo have received support from the likes of BBC Introducing, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio London, Planet Rock Radio, Guitarist Magazine, Maverick Magazine, Hot Press Magazine and Spotify editorial playlist support, such as ‘Very Nearly Nashville’.

Constant touring across Ireland, UK and Europe has allowed the band to build up a healthy fanbase as well as perform at prestigious festivals such as The Big Feastival, Pub In The Park, Godiva Festival and Country 2 Country Festival in London’s 02.

The duo have released two albums and several EPs. However, in 2020 the duo embarked on a strategy of releasing a single every six weeks. This constant work ethic resulted in the band being named Band Of The Month on BBC Introducing.
