The beginning of Embers End. In the summer of 2013, Emily Pate and Bryant Lovette formed a band. Their idea was to craft catchy indie tunes with heavy folk leanings. Their tools were their acoustic guitars, their powerful voices, and their mutual yearning for truth, beauty, and love in music. Together, they invited John Reardon, Sean McWeeny, Ledah Finck, Vincent DeSio, and Matthew Kilby to take part in their adventure.
A duo of natural storytellers, Pate and Lovette weave their voices together with thrilling vibrancy. Reardon compliments the two with a third voice, the voice of his amber-toned instrument, the cello. Another duo battles to be heard as McWeeny and Finck speak together through their fiddles. A jazz-head thrown into a bluegrass setting, DeSio walks a mean bass. As for Kilby, Embers End marches to the beat of his drumming.
Embers End seeks to breathe life into the folk genre while creating a sound which can be described as acoustic indie folk. However, each member’s sonic inspirations widely differ – from classical to hip hop, metal to Mumford & Sons, the creative backgrounds of Embers End allow for a unique blend, a unique folk effort. Despite widely varying backgrounds, ambition drives the group to create a mutual background. Embers End seeks to be the new folk.
Embers End is a group of dreamers desirous of company. Join us and we’ll share a dream together.
