An Interview With Rise Ascend

Q: Hey, for those who aren’t familiar with your music, could you tell us a little about yourself?

I’m currently based in northern Virginia of the United States. I’m a family man and an attorney by trade. I’ve been making music for many years, and the core purpose of my music is to uplift and inspire people in these turbulent times. In addition, I find it necessary to use my voice and music to expose certain human rights atrocities currently taking place in the world.

Q: You recently released your new single “Infamy”  – can you tell us what the song is about?

“Infamy” is a song that is the opening track on my album “True Stories.” It is a song that was inspired by all the chaos and misery the Chinese Communist Party has inflicted on the world. In the song I say, “most of the chaos in the world can be traced back to the evil regime…,” meaning things such as the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China, are terrible things that are rooted in either the CCP’s lack of transparency and accountability, or the CCP’s sheer evil nature.

Q: What inspirations do you take when writing your music?

When composing music, I draw from many things such as the story telling movement structure of classical music from the Classical era, to the moral lessons of traditional Chinese culture.

Q: Who are your current favorite new artists?

Mozart, J.S. Bach, and Bob Marley.

Q: Who would your dream collaboration be with, and why?

I would love to do a song with a legend like Sade, because her silky voice is so iconic, and it’s been over 10 years since Sade’s last studio album – “Soldier of Love.” I think that would be a really cool collaboration.

Q: What does the rest of the year have in store for you?

Currently, I’m focusing on two powerful new singles: “Giza Corridors” and “Butterfly Garden.” These songs have been gaining traction, and I hope to garner even more momentum for them in the coming months. I release music pretty regularly so be sure to follow me on Spotify @ RiseAscendMTSTP, and bookmark my blog
