Event Description

The Roxy Presents Echo Nebraska with special guests Amber Hills, on March 4th at The Roxy.

7:00PM doors, 19+ to enter. $10 tickets, $13 at the door

Bursting on to the Canadian music scene in the fall of 2014 with the release of a music video for their first single, 'Hey, Allison', Vancouver's Echo Nebraska quickly gained a reputation of combining soul strung acoustic songs and subtle shades of Americana. Within a week of launching the band, CBC Music added the video to their list of Best New Music Videos for November 2014.

The band grew out of an organic, creative setting that turned into something bigger than they had intended. Vocalist Devan Christodoulou and bassist Gunn Park were recording an album with a different band, when they met audio engineer and guitarist, Andy Schichter.

"I was writing other songs outside the band that were closer to my roots." says Devan. "My father played guitar and sang and as a child, I was always surrounded by the music of the Beatles, Bob Dylan, and Neil Young. When I met Andy, I showed him some of those songs.”

Andy invited Devan over to his home studio to record demos, which ended up becoming the groundwork for Echo Nebraska. After heading into the studio to record their debut EP, Send the Ships, they recruited drummer Mike Lauder and multi-instrumentalist Kathy Kwon to round out the lineup.

Grayowl Point wrote of Send the Ships that, "Christodoulou’s vocals are filled with richness and complimented by the backing vocals he and Schichter are so fond of." While The Permanent Rain Press wrote that, "Echo Nebraska has crafted a release as bright and aesthetically pleasing as its cover art."

Send the Ships has charted highly on numerous campus stations across Canada, reaching a high of #3 on CJSF.
