Echo Bloom

Brooklyn-based orchestral folk artist Echo Bloom premieres latest single, 'Leaving Charleston'

Echo Bloom aka Brooklyn-based orchestral folk musician Kyle Evans takes a desperate yet ultimately sweet journey on his keys-sprinkled new single, "Leaving Charleston" (streaming below). With the warm vocal drawl of a country song and the drum-racing jubilance of a Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band track, "Leaving Charleston" engagingly sets a somewhat ominous tale of uncertain travelling lovers against sunny instrumentation, the hope of a bright future carrying the characters forward. The South-hailing Evans, whose Echo Bloom moniker derives from a term used to describe the offspring of baby boomers, doesn't just intriguingly use counterpoint with "Leaving Charleston" but crafts a simply pleasant, warm cut. While he doesn't seem to have any New York shows coming up, Kyle Evans will play at Philadelphia's Xfinity Live this Saturday (10.10) and then go on an extensive tour of Germany from late October through all of November. - Zach Weg 



JP's CMJ 2014 Day 1: Vomitface, PC Worship, Broken Water, GHXST, Calvin Love, The Mystery Lights, O.J. Pimpson, Dream Police, Echo Bloom

This is my first time covering CMJ. I’d attended in the past, but never with an actual agenda. It’s overwhelming from the get-go. Having an under-established or unclear schedule is like being in a life raft with no oars, in the middle of the ocean. Alone. I made an all too familiar mistake from step one, getting in the artists’ line to pick up my press badge. It was a bit of a wait, but I met a cool dude from a band called Echo Bloom, who calmed my nerves (his band's music excels at that too, see track below), as I was afraid of missing the first showcase I wanted to see, only to find out at the end of said line, that I didn’t have to wait at all. The press booth line was just about non-existent, and the performer booth was kind of spilling over, giving the illusion of two separate lines. What the hell. This kind of set the tone for the day. - Keep reading JP Basileo's CMJ Music Marathon 2014 Day 1 report.
