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?

Nate Silas

getEventBio(), 250, true)?>

Raised on Vancouver Island, Canada, Nate Silas is now based in Cornwall and has travelled to many lands. Nate grew up listening to diverse genres from 60s rock and roll, New Wave, folks songs and early 2000s pop-punk. He  mixed his favourite bits from those influences together and voila – the music you hear today!

Nate’s songs are heavily lyrical, inspired by gorgeous landscapes, memorable people and abstract ideas. Some of his songs deal with sadness and loss but there’s always an optimism and a silver lining to be found within them.

Nate is a recording artist and a performer and his live shows are full of fascinating facts, humorous anecdotes and improvised banter with the crowd.
