REVIEW album Ayanna Witter-Johnson Rise Up (EP)

Amazing Ayanna Strikes Again

Maverick cellist and vocalist Ayanna Witter-Johnson released her surprise release of new three-track EP 'Rise Up', last month.

Ayanna Witter-Johnson is THE definition of eclectic soul - a singer, songwriter, cellist, composer, producer and arranger with phenomenal musical prowess, mesmerising vocals, uncompromising lyrics and mastery of the cello.

And, this EP doesn't disappoint. It celebrates her Jamaican heritage and Black History. It includes the popular Roadrunner album track 'Rise Up' featuring Akala, plus two exclusive new tracks' Declaration Of Rights' featuring Cleveland Watkiss and 'Rise Up Riddim' that offers listeners a mix of reggae, soul and classical.

Lyrically, this EP gives an uplifting message that celebrates black culture and powerfully describes a future to be proud of.
