Biography

"face of sand" video premiere on No Fear of Pop: http://nofearofpop.net/2012/04/video-premiere-some-ember-face-of-sand/

"Some Ember is the new solo project of Man/Miracle’s Dylan Travis. “Era of Wind” is only the second song he’s released, it is icy and desolate. It’s a little bit Lovecraft (From fingertip to dilated eye/ it closes grip on vibrated flesh, Travis sings) and a little bit Fever Ray, propelled by haunted, droning bass. I keep thinking about this lonely guy in a lake, like a 19th century convict rowing through fog, making his great escape from an island prison and sinking halfway to shore. What happens to that guy? What if he had a Moog to play on the way down? " -- The Fader

" This new tape from California weirdos, Some Ember, just came out on Crash Symbols and I’ve been listening to it non-stop for the past 24 hours... It’s a weird album, but one that gets better with subsequent listens… and each time through I find myself more and more infatuated with the vocals especially. " -Foxy Digitalis

"Pulling on dramatic 80's heartstrings, the latest release from DIY record label, Crash Symbols, is one of their best yet. Carried with a classy backbone, Hotel of Lost Light, appropriately gathers familiar timbres (Bowie, Reznor) and unites them with a unique, personal touch. It’s this personal connection, lasting throughout the eight tracks, that makes this release pinnacle in the labels catalog." -Dingus on Music

"I genuinely can't imagine a more stunning solo recording than Hotel of Lost Light from Some Ember on Crash Symbols. It's an album length visceral bleed out of emotion directly to chrome. The closet Darkwave nut in me hasn't been this happy since Wire Migraine from "^" hit my Nakamichi 600." - guide me little tape
