Where the Embers Fall is an Industrial/Gothic/Darkwave musical project founded by Kevin J. and Jennifer Lynn in early 2004.
Kevin J and Jennifer Lynn met in the industrial/gothic clubs of Detroit, most notably the two clubs located inside The Leland Hotel. The club in the basement, known as The Labyrinth, is where Kevin J. worked as a DJ in 2003. The two of them both frequented the dance club on the upper level, The Leland City Club. This is where they met and began to realize that they shared many of the same ideas when it came to making music.
In early 2004 the duo began to work on composing new music. The process proved to be a long a tedious one as they faced many obstacles along the way. October 2006 saw an untimely death in the family. Then in late 2007, Kevin J was diagnosed with a severe autoimmune disease that would prove to slow the duos progress significantly. The disease began to attack his organs; and in late 2009 he received a liver transplant.
As 2010 approached, Kevin J's health appeared to be improving and things seemed to begin to settle down for the duo. They vigorously went to work to complete their album. However, the good times were not long lasting as Kevin J. was told that his autoimmune disease had once again returned. This proved to be major motivating factor for them to finish their debut album. And so in December 2011 Where the Embers Fall released their debut album True Fate.
With the release of the album, Where the Embers Fall began to play live shows. They played most of their shows in Detroit, Lansing, and Chicago. Just as they were ready to take their shows to a wider audience, Kevin J's health began to decline significantly once again. The duo put songwriting and performing on hold once again to attend to Kevin J's health concerns.
The difficulty continued in September and October 2015 with two more tragic, untimely, and unexpected deaths. This continued to put the songwriting process on hold. This was followed by a rapid decline in Kevin J's health which saw him receive a second liver transplant as well as a kidney transplant in March 2016.
As of August 2016, the band has stated that they are back in the studio working on and finishing up their second album, which they hope to have ready for release either late 2016 or early 2017.
True Fate Album 2011
True Fate, the debut album for Where the Embers Fall, was released 13 December 2011. The album was met with much fanfare and praise from critics all around the globe, including the US, UK, and Japan. In the January 2012 issue of Dominion Magazine, Sean Palfrey wrote "This duo could soon be a household name." According to bloodline242 said the album gives one the "opportunity to indulge in deep emotion."
An interview with the Battle Creek Enquirer gave people an in depth look into what True Fate was actually all about. Here is where the named such influence as Nitzer Ebb and Depeche Mode. Kevin J told the newspaper that the music was trying to inspire people to live their life to the fullest because you never know when it may come to an end. Here is where they mention that most of the lyrics came from the difficult experiences from 2006–2010.
