About Michael Riser
Mount Prospect, IL
“IT’S FRESH...A CD THAT IS GREAT FROM START TO FINISH”
Catherine L. Tully
An aggressive blend of Alternative Rock and Country, Riser's music is powerful and haunting. The melodies and topics of Michael Riser’s debut CD, “RISE”, cut deeper than the usual clichés, touch on the common threads of emotion we all share, and reflect the multi-dimensional depth of a life filled with experience.
“I’ve done a lot of things and lived a lot of lives in a short time,” the singer explains, “and I think those experiences helped me to gain some different perspectives, which I don’t hide from in my music. I take pride in being honest with myself, and I hope that kind of honesty is felt through my writing.”
