"Rise has been an extremely beneficial program for our developing artists. It’s not only a great tool to build direct awareness at the DSPs, but it’s also helpful that our content is being delivered to true, early adopters of music."

"Rise has become an essential key to enabling us to grow real, engaged fanbases for emerging artists on Spotify. These campaigns yield genuine connections for our artists. We notice the communities we grow with Rise stick around long after the campaigns end. Their targeting database is spot-on, and they have the ability to find people that respond to the artist and their music, versus meeting a target number. Our experience has been very positive, and the team is always responsive. Solid partners all around. "

"The crew at Rise have continued to go above and beyond creatively and strategically to develop a tool that is incredibly user friendly that also positively moves the needle for our artists without the massive falloff like most post campaign traction. Rather they help provide a strategy to grow fans and engagement to build upon itself time after time."

"A click to stream a song or watch a video is transactional. That’s just a number. But finding, acquiring, and building a connection with a fan - well that’s a relationship. Artists don’t grow because their marketing team inflated followers or juiced views. Artists grow because they have a compelling story to tell and can find an audience to tell that story to. We work with Rise for that. To proactively find an audience. For emerging artists that don’t have major touring or radio or similar points of discovery, your precious paid media dollars have to go further than a facade of followers. Rise is a staple in our arsenal of tools to find audience and convert them to fans. Not as a short cut, but as a long term investment in building a career artist."

"Rise has been the marketing partner that artists and managers hope for. It always starts with the artist to deliver great music and the team around them to craft a strategy for release. No campaign can magically make a hit happen. But the team at Rise not only execute the campaigns, but add value across the board like no partner that we've worked with in the past. They are a key piece in the recent single 'If That's Alright' crossing 10 million streams on Spotify alone."
