Friends of Emmet

Friends of Emmet a band from Dublin are on the verge of hitting the big time and Black Diamond FM are with them all the way.

I first encountered the band while doing my HNC in Radio last year and i was sent a link to the band from a friend John McAuley i instantly took to the band and their sound.

i have since become great friends with bassist Keith Geraghty who appeared as a live guest on the Friday Rock Show to speak about the band and i am very proud to have been the only radio presenter to have played their debut album "State of Mind" (which is due for release later this year) in it's entirety.

Their debut single "Coming Apart" was recently Black Diamond FM's Single of the Week and is on the Upfront List, the song and video is based on a story about a man called Kevin Hines who decided to jump from the Golden Gate Bridge as he felt he could not go on with life any longer, luckily he survived and it is an amazing story, below is the video for Coming Apart i urge you to watch the video, listen to the song and then go and learn about Kevin Hines and his story it is truly remarkable.
