RISE (aka Jo Beth Young) is an English songwriter whose relentlessly authentic songs and mesmeric voice cut deep into the fabric of human frailty with a visionary sound swaying hypnotically between dream folk and progressive grit; at times dark but always beautiful.
“A voice that can only be described as like a Tolkein Elf, It is rich in harmonics, ethereal and just plain gorgeous!”
Since the release of her debut album ‘An Abandoned Orchid House’ in 2018 (under the longer moniker of Talitha RISE) she has been gathering international acclaim and support from BBC 6, BBC Introducing Devon, and the legendary ECHOES Radio in the USA who made her the number 1 album of the year.
This show will preview RISE’S new album ‘ Strangers ‘ due for release in October
Establishing her unique sound early on in Ireland cutting her teeth on the folk circuit, she returned to the UK and met her long-term collaborator Martyn Barker (Shriekback, Goldfrapp, Robert Plant) and caught the attention of Chris Difford (Squeeze) who sang on her debut EP Blue.
