A sumptuous bite of alt-pop, “Rise” transports us to a world swimming in atmospheric synths and melodic bliss. Captivated by the opening lines, it’s Cate Ferris’ sophisticated lyrics and conviction that drive her monumental voice – bursting with an inspiring surge of positivity.
An accomplished multi-instrumentalist in her own right, “Rise” is the result of a collaboration with musician/producer Abraham Moughrabi, who’s credits range from UK dub-reggae group Resonators to Latin-Grammy winning artist, Buika. Armed with slick electronic beats and dub effects “Rise” sees Cate Ferris deliver a powerful and uplifting mid-summer treat in anticipation of her debut solo album.
Alongside years of touring and recording with acclaimed hip-hop/folk maestros Dizraeli & The Small Gods, Cate Ferris always kept one foot in her home studio. Crafting and refining her own unique sound, she crosses the boundaries of folk, soul, R&B and electronica to dazzling effect. A successful crowd-funding campaign to produce her solo EP, Disappear, lead to live appearances across the UK. Enchanting audiences with her symphonic one-woman show, Cate Ferris has built a strong fanbase, anchored on her earnest songs and nimble musicianship.
Collaborations with the likes of Nordic Giants and Roots Garden further solidified her original, refreshing style, and Cate Ferris was tipped by David Rodigan MBE in The Independent as one of the best up and coming artists. Her music has been aired on BBC1 Xtra to prime-time television.
