The Event

RISING is a platform that showcases the very best in new music, whilst raising vital funds for War Child UK. Created by London music promoters, Hot Vox, RISING has raised over £250,000 for War Child UK through gigs, showcases & live-streamed performances.

Now, RISING is evolving into a new, national fundraising competition, seeking out the best RISING talent and providing them with opportunities to push their career to the next level, all whilst raising awareness and vital funds for War Child UK.

RISING will see artists submit a live performance video filmed exclusively for War Child UK. Music fans will then be able to tune in from the comfort of their own homes whilst claiming creative rewards in return for their donations.

The Top 20 artists that raise the most money for War Child UK will have the opportunity to present their music to our expert panel of music industry professionals, which includes festival bookers, booking agents, producers, DJ’s, radio presenters and music journalists.

The panel is tasked with choosing our winner, who will receive a HUGE stack of prizes.

Who will be crowned the best in RISING talent?

Mellow Mayhems

getEventBio(), 250, true)?>

A melodic kaleidoscope of stuff.

With influences ranging from roots, rock ‘n’ roll, Motown and a sprinkle of pop, Mellow Mayhems have been building steadily since their first gig in January 2023.

A London-based trio consisting of Sam Macdonald (guitar, vocals), Peter Korotki (bass, backing vocals) and Stephen Brown (drums, backing vocals), MMs’ sound is marked by catchy melodies, beautiful harmonies and driving rhythms.

The Mellow Mayhems idea was originally created by Macdonald in 2021, who then partnered with Korotki in April 2022 before Brown joined in October that year. The first raft of MM tunes were recorded at North London’s That Sound Studio and the band selected bluesy, soulful pop number Tricks as the first single, released on 28th February.

“We love the vocal harmonies and on-stage charisma and wanted to sing along!”


“Superb folky/Americana style and a nice, powerful voice”
