UK South West based band Echo Town consists of free spirited brothers Ric and Rob Harrison. Recognised for their vibrant and energetic performances, contemporary freedom songs and use of multi instruments such as lap-slide guitar, djembe, didgeridoo and harmonica. The audience are often surprised to find such a full sound emanates from only two musicians.
Originally playing music of the heavy rock genre in their earlier years, the Leeds born duo moved on to develop a more harmonious and spiritual approach to music in the past five years as they creatively matured and grew into the upbeat band Echo Town we know them as today. They relocated to Cornwall in early 2015 after completing a mini tour late summer 2014. After they received an overwhelmingly positive response from the South West music scene they opted for the vibrant and contrasting lifestyle change of the South. Quickly gaining much attention from booking agents and radio shows. This summer has seen the duo perform at festivals in the South West of England, the North of England and Wales. In November 2015 Echo Town made it at number three in a Plymouth City article called ‘11 Bands Crushing It In The South-West of England Right Now’.
Echo Town have been performing to a live audience up and down the country for over three years, performing at festivals and various music venues. To date they have opened for Xavier Rudd & The United Nations, Bite the Buffalo, Land of the Giants, Wille & The Bandits and Sound of the Sirens. In 2015 they toured the South West and the North of England releasing their album ‘Be Strong Troop On’. Winter 2016 will see them heading to France and Germany through The Mojo Hobo Agency.
Echo Town released their second album ‘Come on Over’ in June 2011, inspired by family relationships, the great outdoors and surfing on the East English coast. ‘Come on Over’ was accompanied by music video for their single ‘Feeling Alright’. In summer 2014 they recorded their third album entitled ‘Be Strong Troop On’ released summer 2015.
In August 2013 they filmed a set of promotional videos with Falmouth based ‘Harbourside Sessions’ for sponsors Anderwood Guitars. They have also filmed with Balcony TV Exeter and been featured on Alan Raw’s BBC Introducing West Yorkshire, David White BBC Introducing Cornwall, St Austell Radio Station and other various independent radio stations.
