ECHOSMITH effortlessly balance mainstream appeal (see over 20 million YouTube views of their videos for their breakthrough single 'Cool Kids') with a sense of energy that allowed them to become one of the hottest names on this summer's Warped Tour.
Their subsequently continued to prosper with high profile TV appearances on Conan O'Brien and The Today Show while the continuing popularity of 'Cool Kids' saw the track reach Gold status in the States with over 500,000 sales as it soared to #1 on the iTunes Alternative Chart. ECHOSMITH also recently toured withGrouplove, Portugal, The Man and Neon Trees.
Produced by Mike Elizondo (Tegan and Sara, Rilo Kiley), the 'Talking Dreams' album has drawn comparisons to artists as diverse as Paramore, Blondie and TheSundays for ECHOSMITH's highly accessible contemporary reboot of 80s new wave pop, with tracks such as 'Come With Me' and 'The Safest Place' capturing the magic that made 'Cool Kids' such a huge breakthrough.
Frontwoman Sydney Sierota provides a compelling vocal as well as a stylish focal point for the band, and is supported by the strength of the musicianship of her brothers Noah (bass/vocals), Jamie (guitar/vocals) and Graham (drums).
