International Music & Entertainment Association's 2015 Bluegrass Group of the Year!!

Kathy Boyd & Phoenix Rising hit the music scene hard and fast and have not slowed down one bit over the years. . . . in fact, they continually pick up speed!

With multiple successful CD's receiving international airplay, this group of songwriters currently boasts the 2008 Roots Music Association Bluegrass Songwriter of the Year (Dennis Nelson) and the winner of the $10,000 2010 International City Love Music Contest (Tom Tower). The groups gospel CD “Walk Humbly” reached #62 on the Roots Music Airplay Chart and their latest CD “Lowground” immediately shot to the position of being the #1 bluegrass CD downloaded for radio airplay IN THE WORLD upon it's release on January 1, 2013 (a position it held for 3 weeks straight). When the band finally released their all-original Christmas CD it debuted as the #2 Christmas CD being downloaded for radio airplay (it moved to the #1 position in two days and stayed there for a week)! The Christmas CD repeated it's #1 success in 2014 after being nominated for International Music & Entertainment Associations Holiday Album of the Year and WINNING Holiday Song of the Year (I'll Be Home for Christmas in the State of Oregon).

Kathy Boyd & Phoenix Rising is all about the stories, and stories are what you get with their original material, culled from their individual and collective observations of life. Whether it's the high mournful old-country sound of Dennis Nelson, the storytelling baritone of Tom Tower, the vocal and instrumental virtuosity of Tim Crosby or the high energy sincerity of Kathy Boyd herself, this band offers something for everyone.

Festivals, corporate events, weddings, private parties - we love them all and are equally adept at striving to make each occasion uniquely successful by working with those in charge to make sure our music is the perfect enhancement for the overall vision of the event.

Kathy Boyd & Phoenix Rising offers a show of original roots music that is family friendly and outstandingly entertaining. These folks are all natural teachers who's talents include workshops, slow jams, school assemblies, etc. Have an idea of a bonus feature they can bring to your event to help add to it's success—just ask!

Kathy and the band were very professional, setting up to play without input from us. The sound equipment was adequate for our party space. We were able to use their mic for our presentations. Kathy was personable, attractive and approachable. The band was similar. The personalized song was fun. Everyone I have spoken to since the party has specifically mentioned the band---how good they were and how much they were enjoyed. I would hire them again if I have another similar party!

Kathy and the rest of Phoenix Rising went above and beyond for my daughter's wedding. They were friendly, mixed with the crowd well, and the music was lively and wonderful. Everyone loved them, especially the bride and groom. They were laid back but professional in every way. And they presented the newlyweds with a framed copy of the words to the song they wrote just for them. I want to have another event so I can have them perform again! Thank you Kathy and Phoenix Rising.
