Profound and Personal Folk-Pop for a Joyful, Empowered World”

Still, We Rise Acoustic Duo

"Through the dark struggles of life, we emerge: strong, shining, and joyous." With soaring harmonies and playful acoustic arrangements, Colorado band Still, We Rise gives voice to the rollercoaster of life through the eyes of Anastasia Rose (vocals, guitar, piano, ukulele, percussion) and Sara Giita (vocals, piano). As classically trained musicians turned acoustic singer-songwriters, they bring joy and depth to their inspiring songs, interspersed with cover favorites.  Separately, Sara and Anastasia have earned multiple music degrees and played for crowds from 20 to 2000+ across the US and abroad. Together, they give a passionate and captivating performance with their beautiful vocals taking center stage. 

Imagine old-school Joni Mitchell singing harmonies with the fresh sound of Ingrid Michaelson, all the while telling relevant, passionate stories of overcoming life’s struggles. Through deep exploration, singer Sara Giita discovered self-expression and songwriting as a path to healing after trauma.  You can read her inspiring story at  saragiita.com/biography.  Having formed their unstoppable duo in July 2017, these goddesses of song are spreading hope and kindness on stage in the Denver area, with plans to release an album in early 2019.

Still, We Rise with Emma Back

Aar River Gallery, 3707 W 73rd Ave, Westminster, CO

Colorado native Emma Back celebrates release of debut album “Little World” with “Raise Up Your Eyes,” featuring acoustic duo Still, We Rise. Raise Up Your Eyes in an evening of multi-instrumental performance and community engagement that investigates how to heal personal and global conflict through bearing witness to issues of feminine power, racial and religious oppression, war and ancestry. Where: Aar River Gallery at 3707 W. 73rd Ave Westminster CO 80030 When: Saturday June 28th. Doors and social pic-nick at 6pm (bring your own pick nick), Still, We Rise at 6:30 pm, Emma Back at 7:30 pm Tckets: $5-$25 sliding scale and available online or at the door. Hailing from the rural hills of Vermont, Back brings her Avant-Folk, Live-Looping multi-instrumentalism and years of vocal and violin training to engage communities in dialogues of darkness and transformation through a series of songs and reflections from her debut album Little World (released May 24th 2018). Little World “soars on the strength of Back’s stunning vocals, sparse and compelling instrumentation, poetic lyrics and a captivating sound that conjures such singular artists as Andrew Bird, Rhiannon Giddens and Tori Amos while standing tall on its own unique merits.” (Tom Huntington, The Times Argus).
