Embracer
Embracer is a four-piece outfit based out of Charleston, West Virginia. the band consists of Jordan Bradley, Dylan Costinteen, Karl Shaver, and Zakk Garcia. While Embracer officially formed in the Spring of 2011, the band has went through much metamorphosis since then. Bringing together a collective of dark, brooding, and ambient works. the group also strongly enforces substance and feeling in their music. Leaving a lasting impression on the listener.

In early 2013 the band began the writing process with a new lease on the bands overall direction. To completely free themselves of boundaries, and expectations set by typecasting music. "We write what we feel." said Jordan Bradley. The band is known for creating emotional, and somber pieces meant to evoke feeling. "We want you to feel our music, rather than just listen to it." commented Jordan. the collection of songs over the course of a year brought the band to it's next milestone, that would set the pace for Embracer's continued growth.

In November of 2014, Embracer released their debut EP entitled "My Father's Will". A five track record mixed, and mastered by Matt Malpass in Atlanta, Georgia. the EP is an emotionally moving, and personal work from start to finish. It is a brief, but raw look into Embracer and what is to come.

We are a 6-piece band from Tulsa, Oklahoma. The band originally formed as an experiment. Six kids from an art school that teaches band performance wanted to see what they could do on their own. When a high school battle of the bands came about, Tim, a senior at the time, really only wanted to get a group together, and play a few songs for the sake of the experience. We never intended to go any further than that.
The project started with two guitars, electronic drums, bass and piano. Tim called me when another guitarist never showed up, and asked if I had the time to play in another band. Being in a hardcore band that was slowing down, I couldn't say no to playing a show with some friends. We all got together and played a few things Tim had written, and all we knew is we needed a drummer. I called Tollie, the drummer of my old band, and told him to come down and play with us. Since then, the band format hasn't changed.
We played our first two songs for months in Tim’s bedroom. When Battle of the Bands came along, we really had nothing to worry about. We opened the show, played our two songs (and a brand new cover to fill in our extra time). We raised $400 for the food bank, and won people’s choice.
With our influences ranging everywhere from emo to pop, writing came really naturally to us. As different as we were from each other in the beginning, we all new what we wanted. We have never scrapped an idea, and have written more than 15 songs since we started.
After that show, we just kept practicing together. Since then we've just been playing everywhere we can, from clubs to homeless shelters, and writing and recording whenever we get the chance.

Members: Tim Clark, Drew Richardson, Tollie Pugh, Shaan Seera, Bailey Helterbrand, and Grace Clark
