EMBERHONEY is the music project centred around the artistry of singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Taylor Madison Damion. Her arresting, lyric-driven songs are replete with cinematic tension, evocative soundscapes and haunting piano melodies. With a voice like 'smoke and chocolate', EMBERHONEY's live performances on both piano and guitar draw comparisons to Nick Cave, Agnes Obel and Anna Calvi.
EMBERHONEY is currently recording songs for her new release in 2020 'The Ghost in the Machine' followed by live shows around the UK.
'A harrowing voice, lyrics that make you feel like you’re in an old underground Hollywood bar with the smell of Chanel No.5 and cigarettes in the air, EMBERHONEY is a performer who can stop an audience and have them hang on her every word'.
Megan Thompson - Vault 52
'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.'
'A dark slice of baroque pop underpinned by death-inspired lyrics. If it wasn't for the honey coated vocals of Taylor Madison Damion, you'd be forgiven for thinking it was an outtake from Nick Cave's Murder Ballads' - 4 Stars.
Damien Girling - Songwriting Magazine
‘Some Kind Of Alchemy is a pensive affair, combining cinematic strings with melancholic vocals and lyrics of existential angst.'
'... hints of Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave and Anna Calvi...she'd be right at home playing in some divey bar in Twin Peaks.'
Tom Robinson - BBC6 Music
'Set to be huge.....like something from a David Lynch or Quentin Tarantino film. Effortlessly draws you in with every song and you won't want to let go.'
Alex Flynn - Brighton Noise
‘.....dark and brooding sound. The music is not short on drama; bells chime, organs murmur and guitars swirl beneath the vocals of singer Taylor Madison Damion, who’s every inflection and phrase seems designed to almost fling the next lyrical barb at the listener.'
James Robbins - Fresh On The Net
'... a uniquely dark and contemplative sound juxtaposed with sweet, dreamy melodies.... the meaningful and poetic lyrical content of the songs is one of the most admirable and distinguishable elements of Emberhoney’s music’
