Spawned by the British invasion and the new wave revolution, Echo Revolution is trying to do something different, and it is exciting to hear (and see). The band is honest, flashy when the alcohol kicks in and the butterflies wear off, but always true to themselves. And almost immediately, unsuspecting audiences will be asking themselves "why haven't I heard of this band?!"
The 5-member band has put out three full-length cd's since 2003, most recently “A Safe Place to Start (2008),” which had play on nearly 150 college stations in the US (charting on CMJ). But if you talk to fans of the band, playing live is what sets them apart. It might be enough to know Echo has performed at some of the best venues in California, been nominated for several southern California music awards, been aired on MTV, and had US and international commercial radio play (Germany, England, Russia). But listen to "Deadstick" or "Knapsack" (they have a music video for it), and you will hear it... music that conveys longing, honesty, hope, and desire at the same time. Singer/co-founder Lee Harding admits "we are always searching for that giddy rush when we write, when you know something is 'universally good.'" So we'll let them keep searching... while we keep listening.
Currently, Echo Revolution is working with grammy-award winning producer/engineer Steve Churchyard (Train, INXS, Pretenders, ...) on a a single, with an EP to follow in late 2009. Following the EPs release, radio promotion and a west-coast tour will follow in early 2010.
