Roar Records Inc. is proud to release RISE with Canadian singer and songwriter Elyse Saunders.

RISE has a great hook with an easy listening vibe. Rooted in country, with Hot AC overtones, it is an inspirational song with a relatable message for everyone!

RISE is inspired by two-time Canadian Olympian, four-time Pan AM Medalist and Canadian leading eventer Jessica Phoenix, from Uxbridge ON. After suffering a heavy fall with her horse while competing cross-country at the Jersey Fresh International Three Day Event in 2015, Jessica underwent emergency surgery and was told that she would not recover in time to defend her Pan AM Gold medal on home ground. Jessica’s spirit and love of the equine sport would be put to the ultimate test.

Unwavering grit was all that Jessica needed to see her through to a full recovery. Returning to the sport she loved in record time, Jessica Phoenix led the Canadian Eventing Team at the Toronto Pan AM Games, winning an Individual Silver, and a Bronze for Team Canada on her mount Pavarotti, an outstanding achievement, given the gravity of her injuries. RISE was born!

It is during those pinnacle moments in our life when our will is tested that we must get back into the saddle and RISE!

For anyone who has been faced with an overwhelming challenge and has found it within themselves to RISE above!

“Rise” chorus (Partial)

Deep down inside, you know you’ve got this…
Like a powerful Phoenix, it’s your time to RISE!
