Starting first and foremost with their sound, ECHOREV establishes themselves as a truly diverse trio, describing their music as “both a form of accessible pop-music and an eclectic, not-so-traditional mix derived from all of our individual influences.”
The band consists of Johnny Nicholson from California, Jörn Bielfeldt from Germany, and Ann Driscoll of Ohio. Their experiences in various corners of the globe have given them an incite into breeding a new blend of indie rock music, crafted with instruments like the guitar, synthesizer, button-accordion, and processed drums.
Johnny and Jörn got their start together in Boston 2009 where they began to collaborate and define their sound. Ann was later introduced to the group as the essential third ingredient that would use her singing, songwriting, and multi-instrumentalism to complete the trio.
In 2010 the group spread themselves out across the map once again, with Johnny in Baja California, Mexico, Ann in New York City, and Jörn remaining in Boston. However, the trio ultimately discovered a way to break down geographic boundaries in order to meet in Los Angeles and masterfully create their debut album, Find North. With influences ranging from Neil Young, to Andrew Bird, and even Nirvana, ECHOREV has been able to harness a wide variety of inspiration to create their own unique sound.
This Fall ECHOREV will kick off their Find North tour on the U.S.’s east coast and ultimately make their over way to Europe as they continue to stay true to their nomadic lifestyle. With their new album dropping on September 6th, and upcoming tour dates, ECHOREV promises to share music that marries “classic emotional storytelling with texture and abstraction.”
