Greetings from Emerald Rose! We'd like to announce our NEW CD:
"Verdant" is our first all-new studio album since 2007, and has 13 tracks, nearly all original compositions or "ER" arrangements of Celtic classics. It's a diverse collection, with every style from classic rock to Celtic dance to lullaby! You'll find some of our new "steampunk" sensibilities on there with "Clockwork Love" and "Her Majesty's Airship Corps." We have some breezy Jack Johnson-esque pop, some great instrumentals, a couple of dreamy original ballads, and the universal-consciousness groove of "Omega." We think you'll like this one a lot! Yes, it'll be available on CDBaby.com, but be patient...we don't even have our own copies yet!
We're only a couple weeks away from Dragon*Con Atlanta, which will be the first place to get this CD (signed, of course!) If you're going, look us up (probably in the Marriott lower level) and see one of our several shows. We have new T-shirts and stickers, too!! If you can't be there, we're also playing at the Irish Bred pub (Gainesville, GA) on Sept. 17 and Matilda's in Alpharetta on Oct. 1 -- see our gigs page for details/updates.
It's been an exciting and busy couple of months for our band, and we're delighted we have some new tunes for you! Come out and see us soon!
