Even though it may seem like Emo is a new face to the Country Music scene, there is nothing that could be further from the truth. Emo has been around for quite some time. Emo's love for Country music started when Emo's father Albert(1924-1992) introduced Emo (at the young age of 8 years old) to Dolly Parton after a performance in Fitchburg, Mass. Dolly was a part of the Porter Wagner Show. As Emo matured from a child to a young man of 13 years old, Emo became more serious about his passion and love of music. At the age of 16, Emo joined a band called the Moonlighters where he was the oldest band member. Later on, Emo had to set a side his love of music in order to finish his education.
Now that his education is finished, Emo is returning to the music industry, Emo has been working extremely hard in order to make his return a successful one. Emo had been working regularly on his CDs in his home recording studio whenever he has a chance . In the past Emo performed all of the instrumentation and all of the vocals on his CDs which is an amazing accomplishment. But recently Emo has employed great musicians like fiddler Tony Michael and John Calvary . Having awesome musicians helping out is proving to be a smart move.
