“I love this band. Gaia Rising is the Rock’n’Roll we need! Their set is on point and I honestly see Gaia Rising in the halls of fame, breaking barriers and setting a new bar for love filled vocals along hard and heavy, head banging Rock! These guys are set to explode. Kween G The Red Rattler Theatre

Gaia Rising are going to be huge. Andy Irwin Spectrum

If you see one band this year....just make sure it's Gaia Rising. They're incredible. Gavin Vance Eastside FM
