Maryland Rockers, Ashes To Embers Featured On Compilation Series

Maryland Based Rockers, Ashes To Embers will showcase their single "Crazy" on the upcoming Indie Anthems Compilation. The Indie Anthems Compilation is an on-going series that will feature some of the best up and coming unsigned and independent artists worldwide.

Dateline: Los Angeles, California, March 12, 2012 朚aryland Local Rockers, Ashes To Embers will be featured on the upcoming Compilation, "Indie Anthems". They will donate their track, "Crazy" to the Compilation. The compilation, which is produced by the WiFiPR Group to showcase new artists they have recently signed to their client roster, will come out as digital release only and be distributed at upcoming music festivals and industry events including SXSW in Austin, TX in March.

Ashes To Embers includes members: Dan Houtz-Vocals, Adam Nickol-Guitar, Mike Falkler - Guitar, Dave Bowen - Bass and Fred Wood - Drums.

In just three short years of playing together, they've already managed to achieve significant gains in their hometown market. Some of the most coveted achievements a local band can hope to aspire to is to: get airplay on the major radio stations, open for national acts and play the best venues in their area. Ashes to Embers has accomplished all of these things, including being featured on major rock stations in Baltimore (98 Rock-97.9fm and HFS-97.5fm) and headlining the major venues there. They've played Rams Head Live, Recher Theatre, Bourbon Street, Sonar and Looney's Pub North and have shared the stage with national acts including: Taproot, Charm City Devils, 12 Stones and Cinder Road.

The Ashes To Embers sound fuses the riff-heavy stadium rock of the '70s with the grit and anger of '80s post-punk, without ever neglecting hooks and choruses; "Crazy" "Look At Me" and "Southwesterly" all tracks from their 2011 "Ignite" release would fit perfectly onto album rock radio stations looking for new blood. It's no surprise that listeners and music critics alike make immediate comparisons of them to 90憇 rock bands like Pearl Jam and Stone Temple Pilots and modern rockers, Breaking Benjamin. They've been described by music critics as being, "brutally heavily and beautifully melodic."

Their single "Southwesterly" demonstrates the vulnerable, melodic side of them while "Crazy" forges ahead with power and testosterone-fueled riffs. This is the kind of band that could easily woo a rocker chick with its power ballads and simultaneously gain the respect of a beer-guzzlin'Harley dude.

With intelligent lyrics and rock anthems throughout their choruses, it's no surprise this local Maryland band has accomplished what they have in three short years of playing together. To date the band has released a full length album in 2011, an EP in 2012 and another full length release on the way in 2013.

When asked about what has influenced their song-writing, lead singer, Dan Houtz explained, "As a band we write and play music because it feels like something inside of us that we need to get out. Our songwriting is often based on real life experiences like relationships we are involved in, challenges we face (as a band and as individuals), people that inspire us and things we have been through. Whatever it is that we are writing about, we commit as a group to creating something whole that we can all be proud of."

Ashes To Embers plans to continue recording in 2013 to include a new release while touring and promoting their current EP, Charming. Do not miss the opportunity to see Ashes To Embers live.
