Tears to Embers / Bio

Tears to Embers is a band based in and around Knoxville, TN with all the core members residing in a small southern town in Scott County. Let this band take you by surprise as they stand and face the "small town band" stereotypes with fate's reflection in their eyes. With a strong and emotionally driven original set, they're sure to grab the audience from start to finish and take them on a journey inward as they explore the complexities of human nature. Deep seeded lyrics and rock solid emotional melody give the band it's original sound and style guiding them to new heights of creational prowess. With a newly found strong sense of self, frontman Brandon Hicks brings new life to a well defined and original vocal sound and writing style. "I feel stronger vocally than I have in years", says Brandon. Guitarist, Mike Strunk, brings such power and passion to the stage as if to uplift the very soul of everyone who hears him. The culmination of years of experience and pent up emotion seem to bleed through every note and string. Matt Hicks, Brandon's younger brother and bassist/vocalist, brings an incredible amount of fluidity to the group through seemingly endless talent and depthless creativity spanning over several instruments. His talents were called upon when the group recorded it's demo. Matt recorded all the bass tracks as well as the drum tracks and also brought ideas to the table for harmony on the vocal tracks. Frank West may be new to the group, but he certainly doesn't feel like it. With each new rehearsal the group grows tighter and tighter with Frank's thundering presence on the drums. A beautiful fusion of technique and power, he is becoming exactly what the band has sought for so long...a fourth pillar on which to support their emmersive sound and the powerful connection they all seem to feel to it. The ultimate goal remains the same and the promise set in stone. Where ever this new road takes them, they will only get there through the support of their fans and by giving those fans an experience they'll never forget...
