Hello. I am the artist known as EMBERHONEY... a poetic wordsmith with a philosophical bent. I often set my experiences and observations to cinematic soundscapes. As a musician, I am part tunesmith and part alchemist, labouring to distill my emotions into a pure, crystalline sonic elixir. Emberhoney is my response to a life which has been over-shadowed by dark narratives. It is my humble attempt to "give beauty for ashes".
If you're still reading this, welcome to my world. It gets a little lonely without you and I'm delighted to know you exist... another of my kind. If you love lyrics and crave the experience of music as a portal connecting you to something of the 'other', stay tuned...
If you'd like to know more about my background as an artist, I've written a narrative with pictures here.
New Music Video Release
'In the same way Nick Drake was able to project bittersweet angst, this track is also a remorseful affair in the introspective vain of Anthony and the Johnsons or Nick Cave. Some Kind of Alchemy is an existential juxtaposition of glittering Gloom and pop.'
The music video for ‘Some Kind of Alchemy’, a single from my current ‘Smoke’ EP, was recently released. The process of making the video was a demanding (and darkly comical…) labour of love; lighted and filmed by J Barön Kent and directed and edited by myself.
Neither of us had any background in film-making but, armed with a strong aesthetic vision, one 2nd-hand point-and-shoot camera and one end of a room, we’ve created something inspired by 1940's Film Noir and my favourite directors David Lynch and Tim Burton. Watch it here:
New EP Release 2019
Currently, I'm arranging material for a new EP called 'The Ghost in the Machine', scheduled for release in 2018. EMBERHONEY’s guitartist and producer, J Barön Kent is in the studio with me, crafting some classic EMBERHONEY desert-dust guitarscapes as well as some fascinating new sounds. We will be touring the release in the UK. You can help fund the 'The Ghost in the Machine' by donating to its recording and release fund on the music page here.
