Music fans and critics alike are taking noticing of EMERALDE’s debut album, “Wind and Shadows” – available now from Gasbarro Music. EMERALDE is comprised of songwriting duo MarcoGio (Mark Gasbarro) and Margie Russomanno, whose individual efforts have already reached millions of people worldwide.
MarcoGio is best known as a sought after pianist, composer/arranger, producer and conductor, whose piano playing and/or orchestration has been featured on ABC’s hit series “Lost” and a long list of Hollywood blockbusters including “The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille,” “Cars 2,” “Star Trek,” “Star Trek Into Darkness,” “Super 8,” “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol” and “UP” (which won an Academy Award for Best Musical Score).
Margie Russomanno’s successful solo career includes song placements in major network television shows and feature films. With over 500,000 YouTube views, Margie’s most recent album, “All I Need,” spent three weeks at #1 on ReverbNation’s Los Angeles Christian/Gospel Chart where it remains in the Top 10.
Together, MarcoGio and Margie have teamed up as EMERALDE to create a genre of music they call “Dream Pop” – filled with Margie’s lush vocals, MarcoGio’s deep grooves and a cinematic feel.
Says MarcoGio, “We want to capture our audiences and lead them to wonder and dream. We want listeners to get lost in the imagery in the same way that great fantasy films thrill us with the possibilities of new and beautiful worlds rising out of the ordinary.”
