Echo Mecca is an all-original electronica duo who continues to bend genres and twist digital and organic instruments to forge their own unique sound! With influences ranging from trip hop to punk to psychedelic to dance music, members Stephanie Sayre Filson and Brad Hoffman keep bringing fresh, groovy, high energy goodness to music lovers everywhere!
Definitely not to be mistaken for a down tempo band, genre-fluid Echo Mecca produces and performs all-original electronica that is simultaneously driving, enchanting and groovy … all laced with live, sultry, jazz/soul-infused vocals and thought-provoking lyrics, highly skilled Ableton production (triggered live and designed specifically for big sound), live 6-string bass and live trumpet that get audiences moving and keep them dancing!
Echo Mecca has been shattering preconceived ideas about electronic music since the band’s first live performance in 2012. With a 10-song debut album (‘…And Nothing More’, 2014) under their belts and a second full-length album (‘Collide’, 2017) freshly released on May 30, 2017, Echo Mecca has become the chameleons of the regional jam band, jamtronic and electronic music scenes.
