Echoville take their name from a late night, post rehearsal bus journey home through dark and abandoned streets, where there was nothing but the stir of echoes... Hence it was a ride to Echoville. Musically, they combine rock (and a lost 70's soundtrack that might include The Chicago Transit Authority and Blood, Sweat and Tears) with perhaps a more loose take on Steely Dan. However, an Echoville song is as likely to remind you of Strange Days era Doors and conjure up images of a Weill/Brechtian theatre-piece performed by The Sensational Alex Harvey Band. Echoville was formed by the songwriters, Jay Zieseniss on lead vocals, and Mark "Monty" Garfield on drums, together with a revolving cast of "cats" from around the world they have taken their sonic journey through out the United Kingdom and further afield to Thailand, France and the United States, supporting names like The Zombies, Arthur Brown, David Amram, Finley Quaye and being personally invited by Pete Townshend, of The Who, to perform at the wrap party of his musical, Quadrophenia. The Echoville sound is at it's most cinematic when accompanied by their blonde bombshell horn section, led by the fiery Kate "Jet" Plane. Intriguingly, legendary Cream lyricist/percussionist Pete Brown is a co-writer and backing vocalist and co-producer, alongside another historic figure, Eddie Kramer, the sound engineer and producer famed for his work with Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin amongst countless others...
