Back in 2014 Danny Wyer (Guitar, Banjo & Vocals) met Kate Marsden (Guitar, Ukulele & Vocals) at a local open mic night in Derbyshire. The two soon started to perform together at various venues across the Midlands, and quickly discovered that they could achieve something very special as duo. Together Danny and Kate wowed audiences with their powerful vocals and spell binding harmonies. After Danny won the singer songwriter competition at Stainsby Folk Festival in 2016, the pair decided to start a band and The Rogue Embers were born. Styling themselves as Alt Country with attitude, their foot stompin’, hand clappin’ sound has quickly established the group as a must see. The driving vocals delivered by Danny Wyer and Kate Marsden are backed by Mr Jables on Drums and Dan Robinson on Bass. Russian violinist Marina Slonova finishes the line-up with her gypsy style violin. The group boasts a diverse musical background ranging from rock, metal and punk to bluegrass, folk and country. They have drawn upon this broad spectrum of genres in creating their unique sound and original material. Influenced by artists such as Richard Thompson, The Lumineers and The Civil Wars, The Rogue Embers never fail to deliver a show stopping performance. Their passion is fuelled by their enjoyment of playing together which is infectious to all audiences from local venues to national festivals. The Rogue Embers carefully crafted songs, fast paced rhythms and resonant harmonies belie their recent formation and have received wide acclaim from local radio and festival audiences.
Their highly anticipated debut EP ‘Comin' Through’ is out now on Spotify and Apple Music.
