We've released the lyric video to our new song, "It's Gonna Be Alright (Hey Hey)"! Thanks to all the fans who submitted photos of themselves at peaceful protests. See if you can find yourself in the video:

Festival Rename & New Venue for 2019! 

We are happy to announce that our annual Girls Rising Beach Fest has undergone a name change AND because it has grown so large over the past five years, we are moving to a larger venue in 2019. The festival will be help just across the harbor at Glen Cove's Morgan Park! The two stages already on the premises along with plenty of additional amenities will help insure a safer and more comfortable event! 

Join us on June 22, 2019 for our 6th Annual Girls Rising Music Festival at Morgan Park in Glen Cove, NY (rain date 6/23/19). Artist Announcements coming soon! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Norwalk Music Hall 02.15.19 

A very special event is imminently up us. Join us on Friday night, February 15 at Norwalk Music Hall in Norwalk, CT for a special concert event benefitting our nonprofit, Girls Rising. There will be a very special performance before the show with the girl singer songwriters from JAMS (Junior Arts & Music Studio) as well as grants given to inner city kids benefitting from the KEYS organization. 

KEYS’ Mission is to bring one-to-one instrument lessons and group music instruction to underserved inner-city children in Bridgeport, CT who have no other access to this empowering life experience.

Jam's mission is to provide a creative haven where artists and musicians, young and old, can hone and share their craft with the community. The Jam Studio partners with local organizations to provide process oriented art and music enrichment for inner city youth and the underserved.

To purchase tickets in advance to this very special event, visit our ticketing page

#GivingTuesday Was a Success!  

Thanks to everyone for making our #GivingTuesday such a success. We raised well over our goal of $2019 for our nonprofit, Girls Rising! And now we are well on our way to our end of year goal of $10K! We have currently raised $3,685 - which means we have raised 37% of our target! 

Please consider an end of year tax deductible gift to Girls Rising and help us continue the work we are doing to empower and inspire young girls and LGBT kids around the world!   

Update From Kristen!  

Update from Kristen: On 10/1/18 I underwent an unexpected surgical procedure to repair herniated and ruptured discs in my cervical spine. The good news is I am moving slowly and steadily in the right direction and getting better everyday.

Unfortunately, I have not been cleared to perform at this Friday night’s (sold out, btw) show at City Winery in NYC. That being said, the show will go on as scheduled. I just won’t be on stage and am waiting until Friday to see if I can make the trip into the city to view this once in a lifetime performance! I can tell you we’ve planned to have a few friends join us on stage, and when I say us I mean Antigone Rising - even if I’m not on stage I’m still there with my teammates in spirit.

On a brighter note, I do plan to perform at our upcoming shows with Dar Williams at City Winery in DC on 11/2 and 11/3. We are putting finishing touches on our new EP that should be ready this winter. In early 2019 we will be doing a special Girls Rising outreach at LA LGBT Center with guest panelists Carnie Wilson and Melissa Etheridge (date and ticket information coming soon but early February is the plan), and of course we will be setting sail on The Melissa Etheridge Cruise with Shawn Colvin, Paula Cole, Joan Osborne, and many others from 3/31-4/7/19!

Thank you to everyone for all the well wishes thus far and for continuing to support Antigone Rising and the work we are doing with our nonprofit, Girls Rising. It’s impossible to express my gratitude in words.

Love, Kristen
