While Laura and Diarmuid lay the foundation Emmett cements it all together finalising the magic. He has been playing music from a very young age and has been a drummer in numerous bands which has brought him across the country to exciting places. A combination of charismatic and creative, Emmett is that special kind of drummer who makes your heart pound to the beat of the drum bringing you to life with the song.
