The Emerald Dawn are a multi-instrumentalist, symphonic progressive rock quartet, who combine elements from classical music, jazz and rock to produce their own original, distinctive and exciting sound—a sound that is cinematic, epic, experimental and powerful. Usually haunting, often beautifully melodic and always highly atmospheric, the music of The Emerald Dawn paints images or tells stories that stimulate the imagination and takes the listener on unforgettable musical journeys.

"As epic and as beautiful as it is possible to get..." ('Visions')

Scream Magazine


“Very, very atmospheric…all their tracks are a terrific soundscape…they manage to paint terrific aural pictures.” ('Searching for the Lost Key')

Jim Lawson, Progzilla Radio

“'Nocturne' displays musical prowess that will leave your heart in your throat."

The Prog Mind

"5 Stars for The Child Within and Moonlight alone... I bought all their albums after hearing Musique Noire off the Visions album. God what this band could do with a full orchestra would be amazing to hear and the guitar work is absolutely stunning, emotion and feeling seldom heard anymore. I’ve always considered Andy Powell’s solo at the end of Ashes are Burning by Renaissance to be one of the most spine chilling solos I’ve ever heard, it makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up every time I hear it but I have to say the guitar work on The Child Within is at that level in my book. I’ve always thought female vocalists were way under used throughout the history of the genre and also very well used here. Definitely thumbs up from this lifelong prog aficionado."
