Bassist/vocalist Ott Jõgiaa from Estonian outfit Emerald has issued the following announcement about parting ways with the band:
"I am very sad to announce that my way in playing Emerald has ended and I’ve decided to move on with my life for an unknown time to another country.
"The past with Emerald has been just unbelievable for me, from the beginning to this day. At our first live performance my hand was shaking like a barmen shaking a cockail at the pub. So many emotions and obviously very nervous. All the people I’ve met and friends I’ve got for just doing what I love are incredible. I would like to thank each and every one of you who have supported and loved our music. And of course our families who have been just breathtaking for supporting us at our concerts and helping us in every way possible. Can’t thank you enough!
"And last but not less important, my bandmates... You are and you will be my family, I love you like brothers and all these years what we have been through are unforgettable.
"This journey was time well spent and it has been a difficult choice for me, but I really hope that the best time for band is yet to come! So good luck, heads up and keep on moshing! Thank you all!" More...
