Biography

Emerson Rose is, at once, derived and a natural evolution from the high-octane “classic rock” bands that dominated the late-sixties and seventies. Touting influences the likes of Led Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy, Aerosmith, The Black Crowes, and the Faces, the band produces incendiary guitar riffs, soaring vocals, and a pounding undercurrent of rhythm to deliver a rock sound that is indelibly “classic” but, by no means, dated.

Emerson Rose combines a core songwriting dynamic in Andrew Bean (vocals) and K.C. Carson (lead guitar) with the experience and musical vocabulary of Jimmy Crabtree (guitar). The band places yesterday’s picture of rock in a new and exciting frame. The framework is then completed by the hard-hitting Tosha Jones (drums) and the multifaceted musical styling of Michael Alexander (bass).

Aside from their high level of musical ability, the band possesses an inherent and unique stage presence. Best of all is their skillful live playing. This is perhaps why the band has earned a dedicated (if not fanatical) live following that continues to grow and expand.

Although one can refer to Emerson Rose’s music as “classic,” the term does not quite encompass their sound, which is actually forward-moving. Rock music has always manifested what has come before, and Emerson Rose is no exception. Their music is manifestation…not imitation. This can best be explained in one of the band’s own mantras: “Don’t just rock…rock harder.” In acknowledging the past and recognizing what the future can hold, Emerson Rose is rock n’ roll: past, present, and future.
