Established in 2016 by Savannah musician, Sarah Poole; Ember City is a three-piece rock band steeped in ‘90s grunge flavor and modern alt-rock sensibilities. The band consists of vocalist/bassist Sarah Poole, guitarist Ryan Taito, and drummer David Richard.
Their debut album, Invisible Ruler, was released in March of 2017 and included their first single, Blackout. With a penchant for fuzzed-out guitar riffs, chuggy bass, and sweeping drums, the band’s sound contrasts the sultry to screaming vocals.
