About Us

Dying Embers is a Dublin based music collaboration where talented musicians who all have other projects and professions come together for short structured bursts of creativity to put together one off large scale shows and record high quality albums. The project is lead and administered by Dara Ryder who pens the basic melody and lyrics of songs which become the foundations of something for the collaborators to build on and take in their own different directions. In March 2013, they self-released their debut album ‘At War with the Eskimos’ to great critical acclaim.

There is no fixed line-up, its more of a collective of the talented, willing and available but regular contributors are Christian Volkmann (harmonica), Jethro Pickett (lap steel), Pete Smyth (bass), Mark Scully (drums) and Michael Sheils (guitar).
