A few words about the origins of the album and project from founder Mick Fitzgerald:
"The SomeRiseSomeFall album project started out as the ultimate mix-tape for me. I wanted to enlist the musical talents of singer/songwriters Ger Wolfe and Hank Wedel, and multi-instrumentalist Martin Leahy & ask them to visit the emotional truth underlying a selection of songs that resonated deeply with me. These songs explored some of the more painful elements of the human condition while highlighting the need to shine on in the face of adversity.
Over a number of years the project evolved to incorporate other artistic expressions, including a commissioned original instrumental piece, composed and performed by fiddler Edel Sullivan, and to include another Cork singer-songwriter Annette Buckley, lending a powerful and balancing female voice to the universal themes of pain and transformation.
Another aspect of the project is to help bring attention and understanding to the experiences and supports needed for those who suffer with mental ill health, and also to highlight to the plight of asylum seekers stuck for years in the limbo of the disgraceful Direct Provision system in Ireland. We support any initiative to improve the lives and circumstances of these families and individuals." -Mick Fitzgerald
