Montreal, QC’s infectious rock band The Rising Few have posted their latest music video ‘I Want You Now’ in support of their upcoming debut album ‘Sinners On St. Laurent’.
“This song was inspired by a beautiful barmaid working behind the counter at the Rouge nightclub (Prince Arthur/St-Laurent) in the summer of 2012. To make things even better, the actual barmaid that sparked this bar-song is the actress for the music video. It was a dream come true to have her as the actual ”GIRL” of the inspired song.” says vocalist/ guitarist Karim Terouz. “Great thanks to CLEBARD for lending us their space, Base-Bin Studio, many thanks to BUBO productions, Jorge Zavagno and of course The Rising Few fans for being our classy extras!”

has fallen in love with since calling it home after immigrating from Cairo, Egypt. Produced by the great Glen Robinson known for his mixing and mastering credits on projects with Dave Grohl’s Probot, The Ramones, David Bowie, AC/DC, Keith Richards, The Tea Party, Grim Skunk, Ringo Starr, The Beach Boys and many more over the course of his career. ‘Sinners On St. Laurent’ is the perfect soundtrack for one of Canada’s most vibrant city’s.
“‘Sinners On St. Laurent’ is really an observation of the new guy in town and 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.” comments vocalist/guitarist Karim Terouz.

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’.
