Echoviolet

Today we have Echoviolet on the show! James Whiteley, Guitar & Vocals, and Rowan Minnis join Shay to discuss their music, and the upcoming album. 

Hailing from West Yorkshire, Echoviolet are a four-piece alternative rock band formed in 2019. The band’s influences range from artists as diverse as Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Foo Fighters and Nick Cave, while carefully weaving their influences together in order to create a sound that is uniquely their own.

In November 2019, Echoviolet reached the finals of the Bingley Weekender Battle of the bands competition, having only played a handful of shows prior to the event. In 2020, the band was accepted onto the prestigious MAS Records Artist Development Programme.  More recently, the band has had a number of their recent singles played extensively on local radio, with “Come Back Home” being selected as BCB Radio’s Track of the Week in March, 2021.

Echoviolet will be releasing their debut EP in early 2021 and look forward to releasing new music to follow.
