Emerald Rose - The Band
Brian Sullivan, Arthur Hinds, Larry Morris and Clyde Gilbert formed Emerald Rose in late 1996. The band performed their first live professional gig on St. Patrick's Day, 1997. Inspired by the energy the four created together on stage and in the studio, Emerald Rose released their first self-titled CD in 1998. Since then, Emerald Rose have released seven more independently produced
CDs: "Bending Tradition" (2000), "Fire in the Head" (2002), "Celtic Crescent" (2003), "Songs for the Night Sky" (2004), "Archives of Ages to Come" (2005), "Con Suite" (2007), and "That Night In The Garden" (2009).

"Hauntingly beautiful poetic lyrics and the knack for crafting a solid and fluid arrangement. They are tight, close and cohesive as a group, and their latest release represents their roles as musical veterans reaching for the path of musical legends." - Performer Magazine
Brian (Logan) Sullivan - Vocals, lead acoustic/electric guitars, mandola
Logan began his musical career as a teen rocker in the small town of Paducah, Kentucky, covering classic rock bands and early New Wave styles. Looking for new horizons, he pulled up roots and went adventuring in Florida, studying drama and acting. Logan embarked upon a "real career" at New College in Sarasota, eventually earning a degree in archaeology and anthropology with extensive field work in Yucatan. Music continued to call, though, and his discovery of Scottish band Silly Wizard led him to the rich musical traditions of Irish and Scottish folk fusion. Sharing these songs around the campfire led to informal jam sessions and eventually resulted in the decision to start a new band with a Celtic theme. These diverse influences - from classic rock to Celtic folk - can be heard in the "Emerald Rose" sound, which often combines rock power chords and leads with Irish traditional dance tunes or Jacobite songs of rebellion.
Logan provides the overall musical and business direction to Emerald Rose in close collaboration with the rest of the "ER team." He is also a professional in neuromuscular and myofascial therapy, and co-manages a wellness clinic and 60-acre retreat in North Georgia.
Larry Morris - Vocals, pennywhistle, uilleann pipes, percussion
Arthur Hinds - Vocals, rhythm guitar, bodhran, percussion
Clyde Gilbert - Vocals, electric bass, percussion
Clyde's diverse past includes service in the KISS army and devotion to other heavy metal bands, a liberal dose of reggae, and a continuing Gothic influence both in music and in real life. Unable to escape the persistent call of sad Scottish and Irish ballads, however, he has turned down the volume and speed knobs to become an essential part of Emerald Rose's sound, lending an understated bass foundation and enhancing songs with various percussion elements and vocals. Clyde's other pursuits include gem and jewelry crafting, anime, Sci-fi, mythology and mystical traditions. He is currently exploring linkages between ancient Celtic mythology and Japanese Shinto.
