The Embers have become one of Tasmania’s most sought after live bands attracting a diverse crowd not often seen in the same room together. The 5 piece blends a heady mix of reggae, funk and dance all wrapped up in a kicking high tempo live show. It doesn’t matter who you are or what floats your boat, if you catch the group’s live show then you’re going to find something to connect to.
The success of The Embers has seen them selected to play many a festival stage, including
Falls Festival, Party in The Paddock, The Basin Concert, Cygnet Folk Festival, Jackeys Marsh
Forest Festival, Junction Arts Festival and Swagger Festival. The bands’ appeal has
also opened doors for The Embers to support some amazing international and national acts
such as The Violent Femmes, Ash Grunwald, The Beautiful Girls, Bomba, The Red Eyes, Lior and Faker.
In 2015 the group realised a long-term dream and recorded a full-length album “Bright “with Nicky Bomba as producer (Bomba, John Butler Trio, Bustamento & Melbourne Ska Orchestra) and sound engineer Robin Mai (John Butler Trio, Augie March & The Cruel Sea).
The Embers released and toured their debut album Bright nationally in 2015 & 2016 introducing themselves to new friends and audiences around the country. The long-time friends continue to play shows across Tasmania while working on the new album for 2020.
“An equal mix of dark and light stories, this is a powerful, dynamic debut that showcases the
impressive versatility of the band. 4/5 Stars” BMA Magazine July 2015
