In a world full of over-production and spoon-fed, manufactured pop acts; here is a band proud to rely on a refreshing homegrown approach to their music. With an unrefined, acoustic set up (which features the ‘cajon’, an unusual peruvian box drum), Newrising's strong instrumental ability is intertwined with hypnotic three part harmony to produce an uplifting, organic sound.
Drawing influence from a massive musical spectrum, Newrising combine elements of funk, roots, urban soul, reggae, blues, rock and latin. A distinctive sense of musical character resides throughout their infectious, danceable, well-sculpted songs. The band has played at many venues across the UK, such as The Bedford and The Halfmoon (London) and the Wedgewood Rooms in Portsmouth. They have shared stages with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Newton Faulkner, Mungo Jerry, 10CC, Dodgy, 3 Daft Monkeys, Geno Washington, Los Albertos and Martin Harley. Newrising have also been featured at many of the UK’s best and biggest festivals including Bestival and Secret Garden Party as well as traveling abroad to play the Virgin Holiday’s Music Festival in Barbados for the last two years running.
"Liquid guitar, great flow, sharp groove. Playing so tight you just couldn't slip a Rizla between any of the beats."...Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music - March 2010)
"There might not be - and may never be - another musical entity like them."...Alan Clayson (Rock n' Reel - Feb 2010 - 4/5*)
"This is acoustic folk with funk, drive, passion and power. There’s a wealth influence encapsulated in their songs - everything from folk storytelling through Afro-bass bounced funk to blues-influenced angst. Close three part harmonies weave together to create a musical tapestry of colour and depth. Adam lays down the groundwork on which Jay builds his guitar and vocals, while Tom provides a solid anchor for their music."...Folkwords .com
