NRG Rising is the world’s first mother and daughters trio to front fresh, fun and conscious reggae, showcasing soulful vocals & soothing harmonies. NRG Rising's fresh, female reggae has two main themes; one of fun, good times and love, and the other sharing messages that support self determination through personal development, including messages of belief, strength, and understanding. The debut album “From Darkness To Light” rings true to the two main themes, containing celebratory, upbeat melodies, heart-warming vibes and thought-provoking lyrics that are sure to become quick favourites.
