About Emerald Rising
Emerald Rising brings back that 70’s flavored hard rockin heavy guitar riffs with driving
rhythms and power vocals. The band consists of seasoned musicians from Long Island, NY who
have toured all over the world with other bands. All the members have played with each other in
different projects for many years. Emerald Rising was formed in 2017 by guitarist Tom
Cavanagh and vocalist Daena D. As the song writing progressed, they realized it was time to
rock with a full band. They added Chris Parrett on bass and John LaSpina on drums. This
powerful quartet is working hard recording at DCity Studios and Bent Pussycat Studios in
Huntington, NY and will release their first collection of 10 songs in December 2019. You can
