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. Together, their chemistry is explosive and have created the hard rock that you’ve been missing and love! Emerald Rising was formed in 2017 by guitarist Thomas 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 on October 1, 2020.
