After extreme success in his solo career and as the creator, songwriter and lead singer of Abuss, Adolfo Busillo has joined forces with the musical talent of Bethany Kazimir, Jasper Paciotti, Pete DeSalvo, Stephen Kazimir, Scott Zimmerman and Bill Miller to form the new band New Moon Rising.

New Moon Rising is a 7-piece  Rock Pop Country band with  a modern edge infusing beat box to create their one of a kind sound.


Adolfo Busillo, Chief songwriter and lead vocalist is no stranger to national spotlight having previously been signed to Atlantic Records. Adolfo has been writing and producing music for as long as he can remember. With his band Abuss, he wrote and performed the hit “Poor Days” (Daybreak) which was a smash hit single of 2015, closing in the Top15 at the AC40 format and did record breaking chart activity from New Music Weekly to the Independent Music Network. Adolfo found spirituality in his recent quest for the perfect band to create a new sound, and therefore his newest project NMR was created. The decision to call the band NMR for the beginning of a moons cycle is a representation of his cosmic journey with his new band. New Moon Rising.
