The Embers

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 to experience a contemporary roots sound. The 5 piece blends a heady mix of reggae, funk and dance all wrapped up in a kicking live show.

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, Swagger Festival and MS Fest. 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, Faker, True Live, The Whitlams and The Custom kings.

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 introducing themselves to new friends and audiences in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney. The guys are currently working on a 6 track EP due for release Nov 2018.
