Rise Up

by Jessie Standafer

Rather than focusing on the romantic yearnings of most current pop music, Jessie yearns for LGBTQ + race + gender equality by nestling these themes inside bubblegum-pop production, soaring dream-choral soundscapes, and heart-pounding drum beats.

Album Notes
New York City-based pop music artist & out lesbian, Jessie Standafer, is making social activism trendy in her debut EP album, RISE UP.

Though its message is deeply socially poignant, Jessie has created an album with an unabashedly joyful tone. Powerful protest-chant rhythms are balanced with resplendent melodies in the title track “Rise Up". The pain and rejection of coming out as a lesbian in an ultra conservative Christian family is turned on it’s head in “Get Down" with exuberant dance rhythms & electro-pop sparkle. In lesser hands, these themes might spiral into the abyss of heaviness, but with Jessie, Love always wins and there is always a reason to celebrate.

RISE UP comes off as fiercely optimistic - the empowered work of a #NastyWoman who plays by her own rules with an audible smile, sexy grooves, and dazzling pop production.
