Rising Above Band Biography

In 2001, Howard Jolly asked Rick Martin and Terry and Brenda Martin to back him up for some music he was doing at a Rising Above conference. Since then they have become known as the Rising Above Band, a ministry of Rising Above.

Howard, a Cree from Waskaganish, Quebec presently lives in Niverville, Manitoba with his wife Karen (Metis). He was pastor of the Winnipeg First Nations Community Church since 2006 and is now the Executive Director of the First Nations Alliance Churches of Canada.

Rick Martin also lives in Niverville with his wife Linda, Oji-Cree from Muskrat Dam, Ontario. They are missionaries with MSC Canada serving First Nations in a counselling and teaching ministry.

Terry and Brenda are also living in Niverville and serve under Rising Above in the music ministry of the band.

Since their first time together, the band has seen God use their music to bring comfort, healing and encouragement to audiences of all age and race. Their songs are a mix of gospel, contemporary worship, hymns, and original recordings sung in an easy listening country gospel sound.

In 2004 they released their first CD, Everlasting Love, in 2007 their second CD, Love is the Best and in November 2013 they released their third CD Redeemed Redman.
