Album Notes
\"I have seen over fifteen thousand performers and Aliza Hava is in the top one percent.\" -Brian Austin Whitney, Founder, Just Plain Folks

\"So freakin\' astonishing in every way...this chick is a powerhouse. She\'s what you\'d call a sister, like Ani DiFranco or Julia Butterfly Hill.\" -The Chronogram

\"Spiritual, socially conscious folk and femme rock...RISE is a ferocious album with mainstream potential.\" -The Jerusalem Post


\"In the course of human and earthly events, the magnitude of human\'s conquest of nature has wreaked havoc on the social, cultural, economic and environmental aspects of life so much so that the natural desire to live necessitates a complete conscious transformation of paradigm and action for the harmonious advancement of the planetary good.\"* This spoken-word intro from the title track of RISE represents its underlying theme as a collection of songs for sacred activism, intending to awaken, inspire and heal the heart of humanity.

Aliza Hava is not your typical singer/songwriter. This fiery songstress is firmly dedicated to using the healing power of music to inspire personal and global transformation. A breathtakingly explosive performer, her introspective, well-crafted lyrics explore the deepest levels of love, life, spirituality, and the importance of positive social change.

Released on her own label, FireMusicFaerie Productions, RISE is an artistic statement of conscience calling for an end to war and a growing awareness of our environmental responsibility. With a blend of classic rock and folk influence, tracks have been heard on XM Satellite Radio, WBAI Peace & Justice Radio, STAR 93.3 FM, LastFm, and independent radio stations throughout the country and overseas, including All for Peace Radio in Israel/Palestine.

The Aliza Hava Band performs throughout the U.S. and internationally. To contact, please visit

...Aliza Hava and her band really rock!

Jerusalem Post

...a ferocious album with mainstream potential....
New York native Aliza Hava is descended from an esteemed rabbinical family that includes Rabbi Yaakov Yitzchok Rabinowitz, "the Biala Rebbe" of 18th century Poland. Her brother, Daniel Sieradski, is the Jewish culture maven behind initiatives including the Jewschool blog and Jerusalem's Corner Prophets rap collective.

Now a resident of Israel, Hava has performed her spiritual, socially conscious folk and femme rock at the 2005 United Nations International Day of Peace, at a World Peace Prayer Ceremony at the Washington Monument and at clubs in North America and around Israel. Hava's acoustic demo CD was recently reconfigured as a complete LP called Rise thanks to the production vision of Jimmy Goodman and impressive session work from mandolin player Dave Ellison, drummer Hector Becerra, bassist Chris Macchia and guitarist John Trent. The ensemble convened at a studio in New York state for sessions this past spring.

Rise is a ferocious album with mainstream potential that uses a sound along the lines of Tracy Bonham and early Alanis Morissette. A certain grandiosity fills the disc, thanks mostly to songs like "Child of the Sun," "Hands of Time" and the title track. "The Powers That Be" is laden with slow harmonies, while "Worth of Water" uses a stripped-down guitar rhythm. The album is a hodgepodge of heady philosophy as well, with the opening song referencing I Ching, the ancient Chinese Book of Changes. "On the Inside," meanwhile, calls for introspective prayer, and the title track deals with the gap between personal and nationalist Ben Jacobson


Not Only can this Lady Sing,,,,,,,,,,,she will give you food for thought....Give Peace a Chance


Riveting and prophetic
Once I heard the first song, I had to listen to the whole thing.

Sharon Nichols for "The Chronogram"

CD Review from October 2006 edition
I've penned on about Aliza Hava before, and with good reason: I'm a complete sucker for raspy, unyielding vox over wickedly dynamic guitar, this chick being no exception. A political activist who recently returned from Israel, the self-monikered FireMusicFaerie has just released her 12-track, self-produced Rise. Perhaps you think you've spun this one before, but you haven't—this is a full-throttle follow-up to the 2003 recording of the same name. The distinction here is that Hava has magnified her sound and production, coming off richer and more loaded than ever before with five players behind her on bass, drums, synth, mandolin, and guitars. Some favorite gems appear again—"Independent Nation," "Julia," the title track, and several others—but they are thoroughly revamped. Additional, brand-spankin' new grrrl-power tracks with mellow-ish rock grooves continue to reveal the ever-hopeful, enormous heart of this babe, beckoning listeners to sift their souls for nuggets of a higher good.

Sure to charm fans of Tracy Chapman and Ani DiFranco, and lesser-known Hudson Valley powerhouses such as Journey Blue Heaven and Shamsi Ruhe, this indomitable sister never fails to pack a punch.

Daniel Torres

amazing and soul full
The album bleeds emotion from her inner soul. Every thing from her voice to the band is amazing, an instant classic.
