Artist Close-Up: Liz Loughrey Is The Vocal Power of The #RiseUpMovement

Liz Loughrey is an instant yes. From the minute you hear those reggae pop vibes blend with her R&B/ soul vocals ,you cannot say anything but yes! Her new single “Rise Up” has already garnered 2 million views on YouTube as the songstress aims to bring old school soul to a present-day optimism. 

Loughrey was definitely born in the 1990’s. She has that early “Mary J Blige Spirit” where she gave a romanticism to  growing up in the city, and the young couplings/social anxieties that would brew from trying to discover both your personal and communal identity. She embodies the harsh and loving self-perspective of being a young, social being through vocals that endear with their delicacy but shatter with their range and prowess. She can go from a gentle wondering of life to a stark claim on how to live it with just one swift riff. Loughrey represents the same style of sweetened love and youthful frustrations in her new is single “Rise Up” where she exudes big bright positivity that is youth.
When you are young, you truly believe in resolution. You genuinely think that you can spark change. That faith in one’s hope and capacity to bring goodness to the world is what we all love about being young, and it is what we admire about each rising generation and the sound of Liz Loughrey. This singer emanates a light through her vocals that makes it seem as if her song is a sunray. Moreover, The song promotes strength and faith that, despite all feelings of negativity and powerlessness, we can do amazing things when we work together.

Rise Up! is a catchy, inspiring track  that stands for positive change, and a call for everyone to be apart of it. For Laughrey, “ it’s time for us to take less and give a little mor”, to which she does the music that croons into your ears and lays in your soul. To the young singer, ‘Rise Up! is more than a song, it’s a movement. The #RiseUpMovement is all about telling the stories of people who are positively impacting the world and encouraging people of all ages to Rise Up in their communities, to which Loughrey has created school workshops encouraging youth to create projects that stimulate communal empowerment and creativity. The stories collected throughout her workshops will be shared on her website. Anyone can take part in the movement by submitting their own story on Social Media using the #RiseUpMovement hashtag.
