Canadian singer-songwriter Elyse Saunders with Roar Records Inc. proudly release inspiring single RISE

Elyse Saunders: “RISE”

RISE (written by Daryl Scott, Kyle Renton and Elyse Saunders; performed by Elyse Saunders)

CHORUS (Partial)
"Deep down inside, you know you've got this... You're ready to shine, it's your moment... To light up the world with that fire in your eyes... Like A Powerful Phoenix, it's your time to RISE"
















If you don't know what RISE is about yet, it was inspired by our Canadian Equestrian Olympian Jessica Phoenix. She is a powerful woman with an incredible story of inner determination and strength. My co-writers and I wanted to write this song so we could share the message that many of us can relate to when going through life's hurdles or a tough journey. Sometimes we need those reminders every now and then to pick us back up and empower us to get back on trackElyse Saunders.

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 sports 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!

Like a powerful Phoenix, it's your time to RISE!

RISE Lyrics
You’re told you can’t do it too far you can’t reach it
fight for the chance, show ‘em what you’re made of
dreams have no price tag, never come cheap
only you can chase yours, you’ve got to believe...

Chorus:
Deep down inside, you know you’ve got this
you’re ready to shine, it’s your moment
to light up the world, with that fire in your eyes
like a powerful phoenix…
It’s your time to RISE. Repeat.

Sometimes you get setbacks, sometimes you get rattled
dust off your old hat, get back in the saddle
tough times made you strong, look at all you’ve done
you’ve waited so long, it’s finally come…
Chorus
Don’t be afraid, make some mistakes
grab onto your (fated or faded), dare to be great
Chorus

May 30 Equestrian Olympian and Pan Am Medalist Jessica Phoenix and Elyse popped in to Shelburne's Country 105 to say hello to Rod & Jill for their morning show and talk about single RISE.

Canadian singer-songwriter Elyse Saunders writes (10 May 2017): One thing that's not behind the scenes anymore is new song RISE which I was invited to co-write and sing on for Roar Records! It's been a fun project to work on and an empowering campaign to be a part of. As a current, independent artist that continues to work hard at only moving forward, this is a song that when I first heard I could naturally relate to. It tells a story of drive, passion and dreams. When I was first approached on the song, I was told the story of two-time Canadian Olympian, four-time Pan AM Medalist and Canadian leading eventer Jessica Phoenix and what she has overcome to reach her dreams and love for the equine sport.
I'm still in awe, after suffering a heavy fall with her horse while competing cross-country at the Jersey Fresh International Three Day Event in 2015, Jessica underwent surgery and was told that she would not recover in time to defend her Pan AM Gold medal. Jessica came back with a full recovery, returning in record time, leading the Canadian Eventing Team at Toronto Pan AM Games and won silver and bronze for Team Canada. 

An outstanding achievement and inspiring story lead to release of song RISE which shares a story of inspiration and empowerment that anyone can relate to when following their dreams or working through any life struggles. Amazing right!!?? I love the idea of writing a song based on a life story that continues to grow.
There are some great things in the works for the song including a release to radio.

Born in Peterborough, Ontario., Saunders says her childhood was full of music. “My mom used to play the guitar and write songs. I was inspired by her growing up. My dad bought me my first karaoke machine. I would spend hours on that.”
At four-years-old, she attended the musical Wizard of Oz with her mother. “When the cast stood on stage to take a bow,” the extroverted Saunders stood up and yelled, “I want to do that, I’m going to do that.”
Saunders has been writing songs and singing since she was seven.
“When I turned seventeen; I decided I wanted to turn my passion for music into a professional pursuit.”

2008-2009
As luck and hard work would have it, Saunders’ first break came when she started working with a local producer who had ties to Nashville. Early on in her career at just 18/ 19 years-old she headed to Nashville to record her debut self-titled CD.

Recorded in 2008 when aged 19, this SELF-TITLED 13-track outing marked the debut for the Peterborough, Ontario-based singer. It was produced with songs written or co-written by Cyril Rawson, one of the most prolific music creators in the Canadian country scene. Rawson has had over 250 songs recorded by some of the biggest names in Country music - Reba McEntire, Tanya Tucker, Gretchen Wilson, Lorrie Morgan, Anne Murray, Hal Ketchum and Lisa Brokop to name just a few.
Maverick Magazine 2009 Review
CLICK to ENLAGE
Working with Elyse he must surely have recognised her rich talent and together the combination of experience and youth is a winning combination. Rawson guided her vocal development, sound and style in order for her to be able to feel the songs. 

The format can best be described as country / pop with a roots edge and lyrically the tunes are relatable to a wide audience. Recorded at Country ‘Q’ Productions in Nashville, the production was clean, never cluttered and the musicianship is second to none.

Where I've Never Been is a beautiful slow paced delicate ballad. The sensitive Love Reinvented had a great vibe with a crisp tight sound and an infectious hook. Tim Buppert, David Martin and renowned Canadian artist Lisa Brokop added the harmonies on this joyous treasure. Nobody's Watchin’ was released to radio as the first single. A personal favourite this catchy up-tempo love song showcased Saunders vocal style….
