Biography

The Dallas Morning News says: “They’re smokin’”

Em·ber [/’mbr] - burning fragment: a small piece of glowing or smoldering material....

That small piece of smoldering material is starting to ignite, and will soon reach a venue near you. Ember is one of the hottest names in modern rock. Since their inception, Ember has performed at venues across Texas, the Midwest, and Califonia. In the latter part of 2004 Ember recorded their first EP "Take Everything" with the Pipes brothers(Drowning Pool), and were immediatly requested in twelve regions across multiple states. Following the release of the album, the band was offered a recording contract with a small independant label, but declined the offer heeding the words of a fellow friend and professional colleague, Justin Furstenfeld(BLUE OCTOBER). They have since recorded a follow-up E.P, titled "Under Pressure" under the direction of Grammy award winning producer Sylvia Massy Shivy (Tool, Deftones, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Powerman 5000) at Radiostar Studios in Weed California. "Under Pressure" boosted EMBER into the modern rock market as one of the hottest up-and-coming bands. The band now calls Austin, TX it's home and is currently working on their third EP. They have a wide road of opportunity ahead of them paved by the masses of fans and that have brought them this far.

"Great band, great show,......you can expect alot from these guys." -Justin Furstenfeld(Blue October)

"I don't know why these guys aren't signed and on every radio station across the county"-Marshel Dutton(Faktion)

"I've been in radio since the 50's and was recently inducted into the radio hall of fame, so I think I know good music when I hear it. Ember is a sure thing..."-Jack Auldridge(Founder of Regency Broadcasting)

"I was truely blown away by the power these guys have on stage with the crowd."-Brian Howe(Bad Company)

“If you haven’t heard Ember…. You will.” -Andrew Calhoun KSAN TV

“They are exactly what hard work and determination has made them to be and enjoy nothing more than sharing their music and leaving the audience wanting more. It is quite an experience.” –Paul Stafford (Steel Penny Pub)

Lyrics

Give a little

Written By: Ember

I’ve been waiting for the day to come
When I’ll understand your ways
Cause I’m living in these four ways
And I’m scared of what you’ll say
You’ve been taking, taking
Taking all my life from me
Take my life away
But until that day

Just give a little
Meet me half way in the middle
Just give a little meet me half way
If you give a little
Meet me half way in the middle
Just give a little
Meet me half way

I’ve been praying that you’ll realize
That you’re doing something wrong
With your nails in my back
I still try, but you lack
Is this how we’ll get along
You’ve been taking, taking
Taking all my life from me
Take my life away
But until that day

Just give a little
Meet me half way in the middle
Just give a little meet me half way
If you give a little
Meet me half way in the middle
Just give a little
Meet me half way

You’ve been taking, taking
Taking all my life from me
Take my life from me
I can guarantee

Just give a little
Meet me half way in the middle
Just give a little meet me half way
If you give a little
Meet me half way in the middle
Just give a little
Meet me half way

Blind

Written By: Ember

He sits in a corner
Afraid of his father
Won’t talk to his mother at all
There’s no superstition
He’s made his decision
The writing’s on the wall
But he lives with so much pain
And he’s not the one to blaim
For all the fear he feels inside
He can’t possibly hide

Can you see that he’s running away
Though his shadow follows
So he looks to the sky and he prays
For the moment his eyes will go blind
Can you see that he’s running away
Though his shadow follows
The choice is his life
It’s made him go blind
Never going home

To that place he feels alone
Where everyone’s watching him
So he locks himself
In his crowded room again
And he knows he feels this pain
But he’s not the one to blame
For all the fear he feels inside
He can’t possibly hide

Can you see that he’s running away
Though his shadow follows
So he looks to the sky and he prays
For the moment his eyes will go blind
Can you see that he’s running away
Though his shadow follows
The choice is his life
It’s made him go blind
Never going home

Can you see that he’s running away
Though his shadow follows
So he looks to the sky and he prays
For the moment his eyes will go blind

Can you see that he’s running away
Though his shadow follows
So he looks to the sky and he prays
For the moment his eyes will go blind
Can you see that he’s running away
Though his shadow follows
The choice is his life
It’s made him go blind
Never going home

Fathers Anthem

Written By: Ember

He heard the sound
Of a little girl crying out loud
While the boys were all standing around
As she tried to pick herself of the ground
He cried for help
But he found he was the only one left
And he can’t take them all by himself
So he ran away
And he never will
Forget that day

He’s still haunted by the face
Of a life he couldn’t save

Is there anyone out there listening
I can’t do this by myself
Say that you can save me
I’m down on my knees
And I can’t go on
Cause I’m not that strong

She tries to smile
As she tells them all this lie
But the bruises hurt sometimes
Who’d believe this little child
She’ll never say
What the boys did to her that day
And she’s hiding all this pain
But she’ll never forget his face
Of the boy how ran away

She’s still haunted by the face
Of a life she couldn’t save

Is there anyone out there listening
I can’t do this by myself
Say that you can save me
I’m down in my knees
And I can’t go on
Cause I’m not that strong

Say it with me
Say it with me
One, two, three, four times you hit me
Say it with me
Say it with me
One, two, three, four times you hit me

I’m down on my knees

Is there anyone out there listening
I can’t do this by myself
Say that you can save me
I’m down in my knees
And I can’t go on
Cause I’m not that strong

Say it with me
Say it with me
One, two, three, four times you hit me
Say it with me
Say it with me
You’ll hit me again
