MP3 Host Echo - Be Water
If Radiohead opened up a bar, hired Beck as their senior bartender and had a 2-for-1 hip hop night where Incubus hooked up with Portishead, the lovechild would be called Host Echo.

With the high quality ingredients of a classically trained guitarist, a jazz vocalist, a hip hop DJ, a versatile bass player and a smoked-out percussion section, Host Echo is truly a musical evolution. Starting with solid guitar compositions, the band focuses heavily on melody and powerful lyrics. With the inclusion of a chill beat and a layering of percussive earcandy, the groove is definitely set. Putting their minds, hearts and souls together, Host Echo tastefully blends rock, soul and jazz.
Their involvement in the music community is also very admirable. Most notably is the Woodbox Theater Events, where the band organized and helped to raised hundreds of dollars for the Niagara Arts & Cultural Center, a non-profit community coalition. Other events have included a fundraiser for a new People Inc. respite house and most recently, a New Orleans Benefit, which raised thousands of dollars for the American Red Cross.
Playing at venues throughout Western NY, Host Echo has enjoyed an excellent response from venue owners and concert goers alike. With the release of their new LP "Be Water" and the recognition as the Niagara Area Molson Music Awards "Best Original Band", Host Echo is now ready to expand their presence.
