Paralympic Performance for Weston College band

City Embers, a student band from Weston College played for athletes at the London Olympics on August 7th and are set to perform again at the Paralympics on August 31st

The Music Performance students’ four-piece alternative rock band won an Internet competition to play in front of thousands of international spectators in the Olympic Village.

Lead vocalist and guitarist Harrisen Larner-Main, 19, from Worle, said: “It was incredible to win the competition and be chosen to play because it was such a privilege to be part of these amazing Olympics.

“We had a great reaction to our own songs; people recorded videos and took photos and a US TV network even filmed us!”

City Embers also includes, Henry Lowe, 19, of Yatton, on keyboards and backing vocals, Jake Redman, 17, of Clevedon, on bass guitar and Josh Armitage, 17, of Wick St Lawrence, on drums.

City Embers formed earlier this year and alongside weekly live performances, the band has put together their first album in the College’s modern recording studios.
