Montreal, QC’s infectious rock band The Rising Few have teamed up with the city’s leading francophone weekly VOIR for the premiere of their new music video ‘Sinners On St. Laurent’, a tribute to the city’s most popular nightlife boulevard St. Laurent.
“‘Sinners On St. Laurent’ is really an observation of the new guy in town to the nightlife of Montreal,” says vocalist/guitarist Karim Terouz, “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 the city’s nightlife.”

About: The Rising Few was born 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 Gesse on Trumpet and Harvey Bienaime on Drums) 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.
30 live shows later and a first place win at the LME showcase competition (http://www.landmarkevents.net) in which the band beat out 200+ others for top honours, the band is ready to indulge music fans in some “punchy Montreal soul” with their upcoming album ‘Sinners On St. Laurent’.
