Sara Ryan & Steo Wall – ‘Rise Up’
A remarkable collaboration between Newbridge, County Kildare-born, Cork-based chanteuse Sara Ryan (top right) and Dublin singer/songwriter Steo Wall (left) ‘Rise Up’ unapologetically tackles the hot topic of our time – our collective response to the international refugee crisis.
The single is taken from Sara’s forthcoming album ‘Breathe’, released in the autumn.
Steo, meanwhile, has a fan in kindred spirit Damien Dempsey, who invited him to be the opening act for his shows in Vicar St. Dempsey also joins Davey Spillane and Luka Bloom as special guest collaborators on Wall’s debut album ‘Where I’m From’.
Nick says: The contrast between Ryan’s silky smooth tones and Wall’s take-no-prisoners rap is striking – a steel fist in a velvet glove.
