Get Familiar: Stage One – The Rising + Rise Again

share on:

Stage One is a christian Rock band out of Jos, Plateau state. The band has been in existence since 2008 but evolved to it’s present form of four members in March 2011. Their style is purely rock but with traces of “Nigerianness” in some of their songs. They’ve focused mainly on perfecting the live act and getting the noise of the music out there.

They have recently released two songs online: The Rising which is a pure, heavy-hitting rock and roll (with traces of metal) inspirational song and Rise Again which is more mellow but still resonates with deep lyrics as is found in all of their songs. And these recordings are accurate reflections of the live act. Both songs were produced by Jos-Based producer, Sizzle.

The Band consists of a Lead Vocalist/ Acoustic guitarist/ keyboardist, Nuhu Gaina, a drummer, Yehoshua Odidi, a Bass guitarist, Joseph Jawfu, and a lead Guitarist, Kachi Mozie. Stage One intends to, with time, through their music start a movement among young people to generate a belief, once more, in the Nigerian dream and in the possibility of success without criminality..
