The Ember Days are about to record a new worship album with producer Kevin Bruchert (The Glorious Unseen). We just need a little help to get there.
What is your response to love? How does hope take shape? How are victories celebrated and pain catalyzed?
For The Ember Days the answer is worship. From the early days spent crafting the voice of their unique sound, the band’s evolution has always been compelled by their mission to connect listeners to their maker.
Formed in 2006 and spearheaded by Jason and Janell Belcher, The Ember Days began as an attempt to explore worship music in its fullest sense – passion and devotion, spoken through their widespread musical influences to a new generation of worshipers. Their debut album “Your Eyes Light Up” was captivating in it’s emotional movements, seamlessly weaving the heavy with the ambient, the driving and the melodic, their eyes and hearts directed upwards throughout.
For The Ember Days, the mission is simple; “We are five people that passionately love God, we love people, we want to speak the truth and see the body of Christ united. We play songs that reflect that and we try to bring the presence of God to anyone who listens” – a sentiment that has echoed with many, garnering them a large following of like-minded worshipers and seeing the band play at festivals such as NZ’s Parachute Festival, Cornerstone Festival (U.S) and Spirit West Coast ‘08 (U.S). In New Zealand, the band has toured extensively with fellow patriots Mumsdollar, Arms Reach and All Left Out. Last year the band toured the U.S extensively with Tooth & Nail’s Showbread and The Glorious Unseen. On the back of their rigorous touring “Your Eyes Light Up” earned a New Zealand Music Award nomination for best Christian album.
The proverb says; make your plans, and God will direct your steps. For a band who’s vision has been so firmly fixed, the direction has been well steered. As a result of their first U.S tour, the Ember Days have joined forces with Come&Live (www.comeandlive.com), a pioneering collective of musicians who have chosen to treat their art like their mission, giving their music away and donating profits to the needy. For a band like The Ember Days, the decision to go with the U.S-based ‘anti-label’ was a simple move to keep God, people and ultimately faith at the core of their vocation.
With a new line-up, The Ember Days self-titled E.P was released this year; a stunning collective channelling the emotive dynamics of Sigur Ros with the heartfelt drive of Thrice – an atmosphere in which worship can explore it’s true meaning; the connection with God, the heart’s ache, the soaring of hope. All this delivered by 5 worshippers, ardently disappearing in the music in order to let the maker speak what He will.
The Ember Days are about to embark on the there most exciting record and you can have a part in it. We are wanting to record a new full length album and we have at least 20 songs to choose from so far. We are really excited about this new record and the possibility of sharing it with people. We have had some very special moments with the Lord in these songs and very excited at what the Lord is going to do through this.
The album is going to be produced by Kevin Bruchert and Jason Belcher. Kevin is a well versed producer but the thing that sets Kevin apart is he is also a passionate worshipper. His most recent release was The Glorious Unseens "The Hope that Lies in You" which is an amazing record, you can get it on itunes. Kevins focus is not the money, not all the trivial stuff. His heart is for worship first and foremost. So with that in mind I think this record has some really good potential and I am so grateful that the Lord has brought this all together.
Our sound has developed and also focused I think, we still have a broad range of soundscapes but there is a really unique sound coming through which I am really excited about. The two things that stir me in my soul is that I really want to give glory to Jesus and to develop intimacy with him on this record and everything to do with it. So thanks for reading, please help us get the message of Jesus and his goodnesss out to the world.
