Rise Up Song

24 Oct 2021

I am very excited to share ‘Rise Up Song’ with you!
In the spirit of 60s protest music, ‘Rise Up Song’ was written and recorded for Mackellar Rising – a community movement in Sydney’s Northern Beaches who are striving to bring about environmental and social change.

My husband Darren and I are aligned with what Mackellar Rising are working towards, so we offered to co-write a song for them. Recorded live in one take in our home studio – as I sat cross legged on the floor with a coffee – ‘Rise Up Song’ touches on the need for Climate Action, Indigenous Rights, caring for those less fortunate, and coming together as a community to bring about change.

This song is also very much for you!

I hope the lyrics and melodies find a special place in your heart. It really is time to ‘rise up and make a change’.
