EARLY YEARS...

The acoustic alternative group, Rise and Run, formed in 2007. Though it took a few jam sessions before they hit their stride, Rise and Run came to be defined by high-flying vocals (Gregory Winningham) and tight harmony between guitar (Chance Rollins) and piano (Drew Winningham). After honing a few covers of their favorite songs, the group competed in several Battle of the Bands competitions in 2007 and 2008, winning all of them. After building a fanbase throughout 2008, Rise and Run produced their first self-titled EP in Summer 2009.

WELCOME TO THE STUDIO...

In the summer of 2013, Rise and Run met with guitarist (Zach Martin,) and drummer (Austin Walker) to join the emerging group, resulting in new music that was a finessed balance of of rhythm and rock. Rise and Run began crafting bold anthems married to descriptive lyrics. In Fall of 2015, Rise and Run began the journey of independently producing and recording their debut album “Isaac.” Produced by Darren Elder (The Wrecking) and Kevin Billingslea at the Halo Studio in Windham, Maine, “Isaac” became Rise and Run’s introduction to the music industry. After wrapping up production at Halo Studios, two years were spent preparing the project for distribution and creating a kickstarter campaign. Meanwhile, Rise and Run continued to write, perform concerts along the East Coast, and continue serving on their local church worship teams.

GOING FORWARD...

Mid 2016, Rise and Run brought in drummer (Micah Martin) and Austin Walker adopted Bass/Vocals. In July of 2017, Isaac was officially released. Rise and Run spent their summer playing a smattering of venues, including popular festivals such as Soulfest, River Rock, and opening for nationally acclaimed artists such as Unspoken, Meredith Andrews, and Phillips, Craig, and Dean. In early 2018, Rise and Run returned to the Halo Studio with brighter vision, showcasing their musical growth and cultural relevance with two new singles. The band is currently accepting a limited number of booking inquiries, and diligently working towards a Summer 2018 release of the new music.
