The Rising Few Short Info

When professional illustrator Karim Terouz left his hometown of Cairo at the age of 25, he not only made the ballsy decision to brace the blistering Canadian winters, he also chose to seek out a whole new career path in Montreal.

Turning to his true passion – music – Terouz began visiting every open mic night imaginable, which is how he came to discover Hubert Tremblay(Guitars) and Andrew Sudlow (Bass), the rest (Isaac and Harvey)followed through to complete The Rising Few.

Fusing folk, blues, rock and pop, The Rising Few found their sound. One which showcases influences such Cat Stevens, The Tragically Hip and Bruce Springsteen, as well as Terouz’s Egyptian heritage with the band's R&B / soul inspirations.

Boosted by A first place win at LME (Landmark showcase competition) in which the band beat out 200+ others for top honours ,The Rising Few unveiled its first album, Sinners on St-Laurent, produced by the great Glen Robinson.

The Album and Karim's story captured the attention of The Gazette (Publication),CBC radio and Music Plus (Televison).

''The Rising Few's eclectic debut captures Plateau vibe''
– The Gazette

“Since my schedule as a bartender was the dominant headline of my new lifestyle, I decided to write about it,” says Terouz. ''Sinners on St-Laurent'' is really an observation of the new guy in town to the nightlife of Montreal, yet it’s written with a slight abstract touch to leave the space for the listener to relate to his/her own experiences. It depicts the colours and sultry details of Montreal’s nightlife.”

''Self Manged and unsigned,it can only be a matter of time before the weasels sniff this one out. '' – FYI music

The Band is currenty wrapping up writing sessions for their highly anticipated second album ''Big Boy Games''

Time to indulge yourself in some “Punchy Montreal Soul"!
