Embrace are Yorkshire soft rockers, who have built up a large following since their debut album, 'The Good Will Out', topped the UK album charts in 1998.

After their next couple of albums failed to make such a big impact, Embrace were dropped by their label, Hut Records. The band could feel a certain amount of smugness, however, when in 2004 they topped the album charts again, with 'Out Of Nothing', which was released by Independiente.

The Embrace line-up consists of brothers Danny and Richard McNamara, Steve Firth (bass), Mike Heaton (drums), and Mickey Dale (keyboards).
