EMERALDE is: Mark Gasbarro (piano), Margie Russomanno (vocals), and a burning seven piece back up band that showcases its musical dexterity throughout their live performances. Mark, composer/arranger, is one of the most sought-after pianists in the entertainment industry. His piano playing and orchestrations have been featured on a long list of Hollywood blockbusters including the beautifully touching featured piano solo in Pixar’s hit film Up which won the Academy Award® for Best Score, as well as 2015 summer blockbusters Jurassic World, Inside Out, and Tomorrowland. Margie, a radiant pop singer and brilliant songwriter, delivers the duos’ vocals with a voice as “lush as velvet.” Margie has written music for television and feature films and her works have garnered over half a million YouTube views. Her most recent solo CD release, All I Need, spent three years in the top 5 on ReverbNation’s LA Christian Gospel Charts, much of that time in the #1 position.
These extremely versatile artists offer song writing for Corporate, TV, Films and more, as well as performances as a duo, five-piece or seven-piece band adding the incredible sounds of a horn section to complete their unforgettable and lively performance.
