Dissension Rising is an up and coming energetic Irish Rock Band. This will be their last Dublin show before they head to the USA with the “Sacerd Souls Stand Up Tour”.

Currently they are busy writing their Original material for their up coming EP, which although Rock has undertones of Blues.

Their Recent Release “Heaven Knows She’s Tried” was written by band members Vocalist Danni Carroll (Lyrics) and Lead Guitarist Keith Garrett (Music).

The Song was written to help create Awareness of Mental Health in young people and has a strong message, “you are not alone”.
Danni and Keith drew from their own experiences of Mental Health having battled their own Demons with Depression and Anxiety.

The Rockin sound of Dissension Rising is made up of five Musicians.

Vocalist, Danni Carroll originally from Dublin but now living in Kildare. Danni has an expressive voice with wonderful tones. Danni has a Family background in Music, her Mom Dorothea (Dee), her Uncle Danny (a Drummer who lives in LA and still gigging) and Grandfather Danny were both involved in the business since the 50s.
Danni has sang with other bands prior to forming Dissension Rising with Keith Garrett.

Lead Guitarist, Keith Garrett originally from Dublin now living in Kildare. Keith got hid love of Music from his Mom Hilary’s family. His maternal Grandmother was an accomplished Pianist and his Uncles still Musicians today. Keith has gleaned a reputation within the business for his guitar work and has played and recorded with other bands.

On Bass there is Va Lentas who hails from Lithuania. Va previously played with an AC/DC Covers band in Lithuania. He has a Rockin Funky sound to his Bass and his energy on stage is evident to everyone.

Dissension Rising’s Mr. Stix is Will Vara who comes from San Francisco but now lives in Dublin. Will has much experience, having played with great bands in the US. Will is an amazingly talented Drummer with great beats.

Finally 2nd Lead/ Rhythm is in the form of Rob Higgins. Rob also an AC/DC player. though the quiet man of the Band he certainly doesnt lack a Rockin style and a quiet confidance. Rob and Danni have previously played together with another band so are not stranger.
