Influences include Sarah Bareilles, Adele, Gavin DeGraw, Ingrid Michaelson, and Kelly Clarkson. Rising37 creates a fun pop sound incorporated with lyrical melodies and heartfelt lyrics, which both allows listeners to dance along, or tugs at their heartstrings.
Rising37 is a band new to Indianapolis, recently relocating from Nashville, TN. Since 2005, Lauren Henry and Joshua Davis have combined their unique tastes and styles, creating a “lyrical pop” style of sorts, engaging audiences throughout Music City. Their journey began at the Blair School of Music at Vanderbilt University, Joshua a saxophone major and Lauren a clarinet major. They both discovered each other’s other talents in the practice room, Lauren’s lyrical vocals alongside Joshua’s untapped piano skills. In December, 2009, both found themselves packing up from Music City to Indianapolis, although slowly adjusting to the cold, looking forward to becoming a part of the music scene in the city.
In 2009, Rising37 began working with Grammy Award Winner Chris Trevett, a world-renowned producer, mixer, and songwriter. Chris has worked with many artists, including Britney Spears, Prince, Backstreet Boys, Will Smith, Joe, and N’Sync. Trevett also spent 5 years as A&R Director at Jive Records. Working with Trevett has been the highlight of Rising37’s work thus far.
Rising37 has performed with Nashville locals including Larissa Bovetti and Rae Hering, as well as signed artist Damien Horne. They have played all around Vanderbilt University, Belmont University’s Curb Café, Richard’s Café, various restaurants in town, and the legendary Bluebird Café.
