Rise is the debut studio album by American singer Samantha James under the label Om Records.[1] The title track from the album was released as a single and reached No. 1 on the US Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart.[2]

Background[edit]

When James established her music style she began writing songs for Rise together with Sebastian Arocha Morton. Jones and friend Dave Curtin discussed which label would be good for her music and came up with Om Records. When they contacted the label and sent them a demo of her song "Rise", she was signed on to a single deal. Shortly after that they signed on "Angel Love" as well. After that she was signed to do a full-length album. James said in an interview that her biggest inspiration was her mother, who died when James was 13 years old.[3] The album was a two-year process.[4]
