About Me

The Embers have become one of Tasmania’s most sort after live bands attracting a diverse crowd at festivals and venues alike.
Their sound embeds elements of reggae, blues and funk. This combination along with a high energy live show has seen them selected to play many a festival stage, including playing Falls Festival Tasmania 4 times during it 10-year history.
The bands’ wide appeal has also opened doors for The Embers to support some amazing international and national acts such as The Violent Femmes, Ash Grunwald, Bomba, The Red Eyes, Lior, Faker, True Live, The Whitlams and The Custom kings.
Early 2014 The Embers recorded a full-length album 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 debut album Bright was released nationally in March 2015 and followed up with a national tour taking in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
