Canadian indie band Allswell makes its debut with the 10-track Arise, a worshipful, acoustic album filled with songs of hope and longing reminiscent of The Brilliance, Bifrost Arts and All Sons & Daughters.
The band is composed of husband/wife Drew and Danielle McTaggart, who also perform as the mainstream pop duo Dear Rouge, and Drew's brother, Scott McTaggart, a Vancouver-based pastor. The trio began recording together as a creative spiritual outlet and an opportunity to share their faith, taking the name Allswell to reflect the style and intent of the music.
