Live Review – Five Reasons Echosmith Represent The Best In Rock N’ Roll !

Cleveland , Ohio – The indie based rock band Echosmith are currently on a spring tour  in support of ” Inside a Dream ” and stopped by Cleveland this week . In celebration of a great performance at Cleveland’s’ House of Blues  we decided to list the five reasons Echosmith represent the best in rock n’ roll .

1- Positive Role Models

The band has been around since 2009 and features three siblings working together to create music and accomplish their dreams. In a day and age of the modern generation claiming entitlement without hard work this band shows you that hard work , determination and drive  along with  talent will get you to the top.

2- Fan Friendly

I have watched Echosmith grow from a small kid  band with just a few people watching them , to a mature musical group with a large following .Along the way they have developed a   loyal following to which they are thankful for . I have seen the band stop on the red carpet at the Alternative Press Music Awards to sign autographs  and pose for selfies with the fans . Not to mention when they were on Warped Tour appearing at their  merch tent mingling with the fans, this band   understands how to make each person feel special and  be part of the magic and that moments like that  last a lifetime.

3- Family Affair

The team behind Echosmith features the parents in active roles in touring and in creating  the band that is  Echosmith .The positive influence of family is an important factor as one looks to to their own life and surroundings when creating music and that shows true in Echosmith.

4-The Music

The release of ” Inside A Dream EP ” along with the single ” Over My Head ” added a musical arsenal to an already full back catalog of great songs. Some of my favorites included ” Get Into My Car ” , ” Future Me” and ” Come Together “. all of which were played live . The mega hit ” Cool Kids ” rounded out the set along with some select covers .

5- The Live Show

Here is where the drive and talent payoff . This band performs like a band that had been headlining for the last twenty years instead of  singer  Sydney Sierota turning 21 this weekend .The stage show , musical ability and audience connection during the show , makes this band true rockstars in every sense of the word. The band is multi  talented with almost every member playing multiple instruments , not just pretty faces without substance.  If you want two hours of pure fun along with gourmet food for the ears check out Echosmith live in a city near you .

Echosmith  is

  • Sydney Grace Ann Sierota[38] – lead and backing vocals, piano, keyboards (2009–present)
  • Graham Jeffrey David Sierota[39][40] – drums, percussion (2009–present)
  • Noah Jeffrey David Sierota[41] – bass, backing vocals (2009–present)

The support slots were also very talented in their own right so I expect to see great things from both Jena Rose and The Score

I had the the chance to check out this band on  Warped Tour and to say I was impressed was an understatement .This is a band to watch out for because one day you will be able to say I remember before they  became famous . You might want to start to make plans because it just might happen sooner then later . Their energized performance and meticulous attention to music  performance makes one think of bands years in advance of them. In school terms them blew out the bell curve. The songs , soulful delivery and rocking attitude of the really kicks things up in high gear and I look forward to seeing a full performance

CKY DEBUT “REPLACEABLE” MUSIC VIDEO EXCLUSIVELY VIA LOUDWIRE

CKY (Chad I Ginsburg, Jess Margera and Matt Deis) have debuted a brand new music video today titled “Replaceable” exclusively via LOUDWIRE. Directed by Produced/Directed by JOFFco, this is the second music video we’ve seen from their all new LP The Phoenix.

“The video for ‘Replaceable’ captures just how ridiculous the whole process of making a music video is,” says the band. “And how bands have so many bad ideas pitched to them so we figured we put a bunch of them into one video. It’s a comical look about our hunt to find an average director to shoot a decent music video and the struggle that ensued. Enjoy!”

The band initially released the “Replaceable” single last month exclusively via SIRIUSXM’s OCTANE channel, “Head For A Breakdown” via CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND and “Days Of Self Destruction” (Feat. Brent Hinds) before that. Both can be streamed below.

CKY released The Phoenix on June 16, 2017 via eOne Music. The all new LP is the first release since the band put out Carver City in 2009. The album was engineered and mixed at Rancho De La Luna, the highly regarded recording studio in Joshua Tree, CA.

The cover art for The Phoenix was completed by chandelier maker and artist Adam Wallacavage. The band commissioned Wallacavage to create a one of a kind piece for the cover.

The band is currently on 2017 Vans Warped Tour. This is the band’s first time returning to the Warped Tour since 2000. Before that, CKY finished a highly successful thirteen show run of the UK, most of which were sold out.

Chad I Ginsburg, the band’s guitarist and singer, steps into the frontman role with charisma, charm, and bravado, confidently delivering a diverse performance as he claims a position that was clearly rightfully his to own.

He’s joined in enduring partnership and musical and personal chemistry by fellow CKY cofounder, Jess Margera, the drummer whose extracurricular work in projects like The Company Band (with guys from Clutch and Fireball Ministry) expanded CKY’s horizons as much as Ginsburg’s solo work has as well. The duo returned to their primary project refreshed and reenergized, with bassist Matt Deis (ex-All That Remains), who first joined CKY in 2005.

Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, and Deftones have all personally invited CKY on tour, cementing a legacy as a hard-charging live act. CKY built a worldwide fanbase of dedicated acolytes, friends, and supporters, lovingly dubbed the CKY Alliance, with a broader group of musicians, athletes, and other creative types in the CKY family, both literally and figuratively.

“We’re grown adults now with an eagle-eye perspective on who we are, what we do, and how to do it right,” Ginsburg declares, with matter-of-fact certainty. “None of us are out there in the clouds. We’re pretty well-grounded people that have an honest perspective on where we’re at.”
