"Rising were invaluable during the release of my last studio album DRIVE. For a period of about six months around the release, hardly a day went by without me speaking to Seb or Avery about every single aspect of the release, with their input going far beyond what I expected, covering many more areas than just digital management, and never getting annoyed at my multiple phone calls and emails about every aspect of the project. On release day, we nailed the elusive #1 spot on the US iTunes Dance chart and it’s no exaggeration to say without Rising, I don’t think that would have happened. Great company, great people."
