"Despite its weighty words, listening to Rise is an effortless pleasure. This record is a beauty." –Andy Frank, Roots Music Canada

Annabelle’s distinct musical imagination is in evidence on her latest release, Rise, nominated for a Juno and a Canadian Folk Music Award, for she has managed to take a decades-old art form, the protest song, and completely reimagine it for a new era of activism.
