From the recording Never Giving Up
Rise is from our 2018 album, Resolved to the Mutual Satisfaction of Both Parties.
Rise was recorded, mixed and mastered in Portland, Oregon by Matt Greco, owner of The Rye Room. Guest artists during this recording session were Christopher Friesen on bass and Randy Herbert on drums. Stoneface Honey artists include Dan Johnson on guitar, Kate Austin on vocals and Angie Kopshy on vocals and keyboard.
A brilliant sage suddenly appeared at my feet. She placed her hand upon my heart and whispered, "This is your destiny."
A woman in black with hair as gold as the sun took my hand. She said, "Close your eyes. Open your mind. Feel the power of this land." She said, "Daughter of my daughter's daughter; blood of mine. We've been waiting for all your life. It's finally time."
To rise. It's time to fight.
A band of ancient shamen stopped me in my tracks. They placed their magic on me and said, "You can never go back." They said, "Sister on her hero's journey, take our hand. We've been waiting for all our lives. Here we stand. To rise.
We can't wait any longer. We can't hide the fire that's been burning, burning ever stronger. We can't deny.
It's time to rise.
