Talitha Rise is a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who writes songs of emotional depth and beauty. Her unique brand of neofolk journeys hypnotically through evocative worlds of raw heart-breaking hope and life’s deeper realities with an ethereal mystique. Compared to Stevie Nicks, Joan Baez, First Aid Kit and Tori Amos, Rise has an unusual voice that is very much her own.
Originally from East Sussex, the accomplished performer has opened for artists such as Renaissance and Antonio Forcoine, holding the attention of spellbound audiences at The Maltings, Haslemere Hall and St. Pancras Church in London.
Bloodfox is the new single from the upcoming debut album ‘An Abandoned Orchid House’ due in February 2018. The track was recorded at home on piano and features Jo Cox’s speech on diversity and is a collaboration with songwriter Nick Webb (frontman of indie band Capital).
The debut album is co-written with Martyn Barker (Shriekback/Goldfrapp) and features contributions from Juldeh Camara (Robert Plant) and a lyrical contribution from Kathryn Williams.
Filmed on Beachy Head in East Sussex and influenced by the political climate of the last year, the video is a metaphorical representation and haunting portrayal of being willingly led into danger until ready to fight back (the exhausted hunted fox transforming into the hunter ‘bloodfox’ that turns on the hounds).
