New Rising to headline gig after supporting Ed Sheeran
Acoustic three-piece New Rising have grown from strength to strength since they burst onto the music scene.
The Guilford based band's unique and fiercely driven sound has won them critical acclaim across the world.
After performing their largest gig to date supporting Ed Sheeran at Thetford Forest, the band are coming home to The Half Moon in Putney.
Roots, reggae, funk and rock make up their music, which caught the attention of Sheeran when he met the band in 2008.
The band were contacted by Sheeran a few years later and asked the trio to play at his biggest headline gig to date, with tickets selling out in 15 minutes.
Since the gig New Rising are now in talks with major management and are in the midst of creating a new album.
They are looking forward to performing at The Half Moon following their success, with the venue offering a platform for underground rock musicians.
Jasmine Rodgers will be leading the support, daughter of English rock icon Paul Legend.
There will also be support from David Goo who brought the band and Sheeran together, as well as Guilford's own Billy Irvine.
