Newrising are one of the most exciting acts ever to appear on the Cordless Show stage. This is truly acoustic folk with funk at its best. There’s a wealth of influence encapsulated in their songs – everything from folk storytelling through to Afro-bass bounced funk and 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.
Newsrising got an invitation to perform on the Cordless Show after being spotted by a music producer on the internet who says “they are refreshing to hear”.
