Montreal, QC’s The Rising Few announce they will be performing on July 8th at the Belmont with Fatima Radics in support of their latest debut album ‘Sinners On St. Laurent’(iTunes). The album is a tribute to the city that has given so much to vocalist Karim Terouz, a professional illustrator whom immigrated from Cairo, Egypt to embrace the blistering Canadian winters and the lively music scene that Montreal is internationally known for.

The band is now streaming their summer track ‘Soleil’ at the following link: https://soundcloud.com/the-rising-few/soleil

“Soleil is our summer song from our ”Sinners on St-Laurent” album, it is highlighted by the trumpet hook by our own Isaac Gesse on horns.” comments vocalist Karim Terouz.

Performing over 30 live shows since first beginning on the scene and a first place win at the LME showcase competition (http://www.landmarkevents.net) in which the band beat out 200+ others for top honours. The Rising Few is excited to indulge music fans in some “punchy Montreal soul” with this debut produced by the great Glen Robinson known for his mixing and mastering credits on projects with Dave Grohl’s Probot, The Ramones, David Bowie, AC/DC, Keith Richards, The Tea Party, Grim Skunk, Ringo Starr, The Beach Boys and many more over the course of his career.

Accompanying Terouz in his true passion of music are Hubert Tremblay (Guitars) and Andrew Sudlow (Bass) whom he met when he first started visiting every open mic night imaginable in the city. He was then later joined by Isaac Gesse (Trumpet) and Harvey Bienaime (Drums) to complete The Rising Few and create a fusion of folk, blues, rock and pop that the band showcases with its influences from Cat Stevens, The Tragically Hip and Bruce Springsteen, as well as Terouz’s Egyptian heritage with the band’s R&B / soul inspirations.

“Rising Few’s eclectic debut captures Plateau vibe: Sinners on St. Laurent marries folk and blues with artfully constructed, narrative-driven melodic rock writing.” – Montreal Gazette

“Ce qui est certain, c’est que ‘The Rising Few’ donne un sentiment réellement Montréalais! Entre leurs paroles anglaises et françaises, les mélodies dynamiques et sereines et les paroles parlant d’amour et de solitude, on peut imaginer les petits cafés du plateau, les bars animés de St. Laurent et les rues vives et pleines d’énergie de Montréal!” – The Indie Blender

“Their debut album begins with the title track “Sinners On St. Laurent” you will be quickly taken away by the smoothing vocals of Karim Terouz. Karim’s smooth and slick sounding Jazz/pop vocals graciously flow throughout the song. As well as the vocals the lyrics are quite cleverly written by Karim as well, the lyrics come straight from the visual exposures from which Karim has taken in while living in Montreal. The instrumental aspect of the song goes perfectly hand in hand with the vocals as well. . If you are intrigued by lyrics such as I am you will be delighted with the full composition and arrangement of the song. ” – Kingston Music Reviews

“…what’s abundantly clear is that all of these musicians are as talented as they are passionate about their art. Their recorded music is highly recommended, and is different enough from the live show to make each separate experience well worth your cash. With an encore that seamlessly includes solos from all five members, the band wraps up their set neatly and modestly bids farewell. This is an act to watch, and though they are not all necessarily natives, their sound is unarguably Montreal, and something we as a city can be proud to have produced.” – Bucket List Music Reviews (Live Review)

”As an illustrator myself, how can I not visually tackle the characters and themes I create for the songs…after all it’s all storytelling, and the more you dwell in THE ART of your craft, the more you are at peace with the questions that surround it…you know what they say, The Devil’s in the Details !” says Karim Terouz.
