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. Emeralde came to life in 2014 after Mark and Margie collaborated on several different Christian and pop recordings. Their individual styles yielded rich, musically diverse and internationally appealing songs that have become the unique style of Emeralde.
