RBR Update

Hello, so I’ve been a little quiet lately but there’s been plenty happening in the background.

I’ve updated by video section with all the latest stuff from YouTube which you can find here.

I’m currently working on another remix, this time for the stupidly talented Forest of Fools who have been ripping up the festival scene for the last few years. I’m working on a RBR mix of their track Ancestors. I’m hoping to start on a remix of a track by Candidates very soon too.

I’m also in the process of writing and recording my new EP I’m going to move away from the 4 theme now and do a slightly longer one with 5 or 6 tracks. Titles I’m working on at the moment include:

Poster Boy
Feel the Burn
Guard the Guards
Don’t
And a new dirty electro version of Lipstick Girls

The songs are in a more electronic style than previous EPs but there’s still plenty of guitar in there.

Next gig is an acoustic set at MK Food Fest on the 15th September which is held in Linford Manor Park. Last years event was great. You can find more details of the event here…

See you all soon.

The Science of Rainbows – New YouTube Video

Today I released the video for my instrumental track The Science of Rainbows, created by the amazing team at Art Studio 14.

I guess I’m known as a singer songwriter type performer at the moment but I come up with many different ideas for my music. I first came up with the concept for this track many, many years ago. I wanted to do an instrumental track with dialogue on it. It was my attempt to try and represent the mix of science and natural beauty involved in a rainbow.

Originally I just sampled some old Open University type lecture on the subject, but worried that it might offend someone if I just stole their content. So the track sat on my hard drive for years but I never forgot about it.

Years later I had the good fortune to become great friends with a woman who had a very keen interest in the world of science. After talking about the idea of the song she very kindly agreed to not only write a custom dialogue about the science of rainbows, but to also narrate it for me. So this track really wouldn’t have happened without her.

Once I’d heard her amazing content I felt compelled to return to the track and make it better so that it could hopefully act as a worthy backing for her beautiful words.

Yes this is a little bit of departure from what some of you might have expected from a Rise Bailey Rise track, but I hope you enjoy it regardless.

So I dedicate this song to Jan Kiddley and her science.

And don’t forget…

“There are many rays of light”

Thanks for your time
