  About Us

West Ember are an El Paso based indie-pop group founded in the Fall of 2014 by Alex Bird on vocals and Amadeus on guitar. On April of 2016, Alex and Amadeus debuted their first single “Bella” which gave them local attention within the El Paso music scene. During the Fall of 2016, the duo participated in the annual El Paso Songwriting Contest where they presented their ballad “Luna.” Alex and Amadeus were fortunate enough to win 1st place for “Best Song” and were rewarded $400 dollars and 5 hours worth of studio time at Star City Studios. Immediately after, a 5-song contract was created between their producer, Chris Bayland, for which they fundraised to come up with the additional funds needed. During the Spring of 2017, Amadeus met drummer Jake Piñedo during an economics class in college and instantly connected with the founding members in a practice session. On February 1st, 2019, West Ember released their EP “Birds & Lions” and are available for “Contact” to book press tours, Interviews, shows and recruitment for the late summer of this year.
