Second Echo Trio with Hunter & Girton, also Kristen Bennett
April 28, 2017 @ 11:30 pm - 2:00 am$5
Second Echo’s, “EvElution” album was recorded entirely by frontman, Casey Stickley. And while he does have a backing band to help him perform live shows, he wanted to find more opportunities to play live, and to be able to reach a wider audience with a softer, more laid back style of music.
“I’ve always been more of a, “band” type of guy. I’ve always wanted a group of people behind me helping me create this wall of sound, but over the past few years I’ve found myself really loving just being up on stage by myself with a guitar. I’ve been influenced by so many different musical styles, and I’ve never liked the idea of being “pigeon holed” into one genre of music, and this album has helped me explorer my, “Dave Mathews”, and my, “Jason Mraz”, side. Hopefully this will give people a taste of what the acoustic shows will be like” ~~~~ Casey Stickley
Hunter & Girton is a singer/songwriter duo from central Indiana, made up of Jonathan Hunter and Dakota Girton. A newer group, this pair formed in late 2015 and saw immediate success in their first full year together. The next year brought their debut album, an independent release entitled “Something From Heaven.” This caught the attention of multiple record labels and producers out of Nashville, TN, and the duo received multiple offers, including one from two-time Grammy nominee Dave Moody. Their songwriting has been praised by multiple music industry producers, which brought a publishing offer and the opportunity to record a radio single at Dark Horse Recording Studios (Taylor Swift, Tim Mcgraw, Matchbox 20, Reliant K, Keith Urban, Neil Diamond, ect). Although the duo has remained independent, continuing to develop their sound and balance their work lives, they’re continuing to write and record new music, with a new project on the horizon in 2017.
Kristen Bennett-Fresh from the indie scene of Nashville, Tennessee, pop/rock singer-songwriter Kristen Bennett offers a new outlook on honest, satisfying music. With a smooth, relaxed vocal similar to the likes of Colbie Callait, Adele, and Nina Simone, Bennett turns to her roots in jazz music to exemplify genres of pop, rock, and folk.
