Rise RISE! is Greg Erwin-guitars, Phil Lester- bass and Bryan Hawkins on Drums.

Phil and Greg had known each other for several years prior to conception of RISE! Greg and Bryan met when Bryan was hired for a run with Felicia King as a drummer. Greg was playing guitar for Felicia at this time. The first show they played together "they knew it was magic, and knew eventually they had to start their own band." RISE! formed July 4th 2010, when Greg got a call to do a local show in KY. He called Bryan, who had just got off the road with Les Dudek and he called Phil. The rest is soon to be History!
