Echo Nebraska
On Echo Nebraska's debut EP, Send The Ships, the Vancouver-based band creates a rustic acoustic sound that might've been birthed had REM and Father John Misty spent a night together in a forest. Ranging from the gentle new country of "Nice Philosophy" to the riffier rock of "Out of Time" and lilting harmony-heavy first single, "Hey Allison," the record is cohesive while still being diverse.

The band grew out of an organic, creative setting that turned into something a lot bigger than they had intended. Devan and bassist Gunn Park were recording with producer Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan/The New Pornographers), when they met audio engineer, Andy Schichter.

"The drummer had a hard rock style so I found myself writing songs that fit his intensity," says Devan. "However, I was writing outside the band that were closer to my roots. When I met Andy, I showed him some of those songs."

Andy invited Devan over to his home to record demos. Hearing something special in what they had cut, they went into the studio with Gunn.

With the recruitment of keyboardist Karen Hefford, violinist Kathy Kwon, and drummer Mike Lauder, the band is now looking forward to seeing how the songs evolve on the road.

"When we went into the studio, we had all the parts set in stone. We were pleased with the demos, so it was just a matter of re-recording them in a proper studio setting," says Andy. "It doesn't have to stay that way. We can re-imagine these songs on stage."
Andrew Phelan

Clay Ravens
The Clay Ravens are one of the Vancouver music scene's hottest upcoming bands. Their original style of music blends Americana, Rock, and Folk music into an exciting and emotionally powerful show!
