Still working on that hot first release.



Rising Waters has been a music project for about 3 years.

Usually when trying to coordinate creativity and talent from four diverse individuals, the wheels tend to turn slow, and even more slowly when life seems to get in the way. With decisions of pursuing "rising" careers and taking care of various responsibilities before choosing to be out late playing and ending up with a head the size of a truck in the morning, Rising Waters has somehow managed to stay focused. They wish to first play as many "select venues" and fund raising events as possible, get some solid high quality recordings accomplished (pending), push for local radio play, and then set their sights on the ECMA's. (Yes the ECMA's!) I guess if you're going to dream, might as well dream big... ;)

Rising Waters is a compound of four people that have gelled together to play some great songs resulting in pleasant guitar work, secure bass lines, solid beats to rhythm, and lyrics that are story and statement styles combined.

Jesse Grady is the newest member of the group bringing an element of youth and creative drum beats.

Stephen Terry (Halifax) brings touring experience, wisdom, wit and diplomacy along with his most important attribute, great solid bass lines to provide the backbone for these songs to stand up and shout at today's cookie cutter releases.

Paul Sarrazin (Halifax) is responsible for taking these simple rhythm guitar songs and lifting them to the place in your head where melodies rattle and echo all day long after you hear it. His riffs and subtlety adds is inspiring, creepy and sometimes just plain rock. Sometimes it's the silence between notes that makes a great hook, other times it's just perfect placement, and many have said that Sarrazin knows how to balance both.

Paul also re-enforces the tough parts for the emotional vocal sustains that singer/song writer Richard Schaller (Halifax) releases in prolonged pitch time after time, song after song.

Richard adds:

"This process slowly continues and is becoming more of a goal than a hobby, it's important to keep the fires alive and get what we got "out there" at least for some to sound-taste and maybe get some helpful and encouraging feedback, people seem to like our stuff. At the last place we played, people were singing along with Aerosol Fire, which was pretty damn cool."
