Rizer is a most unlikely fellowship. Nick Washburn guitarist/singer/songwriter and founding member, was lead vocals for 3 of the band's studio projects, recently gave up the lead vox spot to firebrand Adam Dipenti. The addition of gritty lead vocalist Adam Dipenti and a keyboard player, rounds out this radio friendly rock outfit and sets a new tone for the band. Gary Gilbert on bass has recorded with such notables as Kerry Livgren and Ronnie James Dio. Gary has been active playing with and recording with local Atlanta bands. The band's awesome chemistry has Gary using his bass to essentially be a second guitarist. Super talented keyboardists are so often-unsung Keith Denmon, has sat in on keys for Edgar Winter and the like. Drummer extraordinaire Luke Testa has been on the drums since age 3, he toured with Bacon Brothers as sound engineer. Luke has a home studio where he records local bands.

Rizer played showcases in 2008 and 2009 during the GMA conference in Nashville. The members of Rizer consider the band a ministry effort allowing them to sow the seeds of their faith. The band was previously known as Nurtured In Purple, a 3-piece power trio. NIP had hit songs on Internet radio (CMRADIO.NET) and opened for Kings X and Jack Russell (Great White) on local tickets. Rizer is concentrating on writing new material and looking for the breaks.
