Adam Holmes and the Embers debut album, 'Heirs and Graces' was released to much acclaim in early 2014 and immediately achieved a Scottish Album of the Year nomination. Produced by John Wood (John Martyn, Nick Drake, Richard Thompson, Sandy Denny, Pink Floyd, Kate and Anna McGarrigle, Fairport Convention) it followed a stint working on building sites by day, playing in folk clubs at night before a string of award nominations from the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year competition to Best Newcomer at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and then Best Up and Coming Artist at The Scottish Traditional Music Awards, all recognising a rising star on the UK folk scene. Live sessions for BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 3 and BBC Scotland soon followed.

Two years on, the new album, 'Brighter Still' is eagerly anticipated by folk fans and critics alike, but its combination of haunting melodies, honest lyrics and Adam's captivating voice will undoubtedly resonate with a wider audience.
