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 very talented musicians from New York who have come together to create their unique sound and style. Emerald Rising was formed in 2018 by vocalist Daena D and guitarist Thomas Michael Cavanagh. 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.
