About The Echoes

Cadiz, KY

THE ECHOES were formed in New York City in early 2000 by native Kentuckians Mark Alexander and Teresa Starr. Starr, a poet attending graduate school at Sarah Lawrence College, became the perfect voice for Alexander's insightful lyrics and plaintive melodies. Alexander, a veteran to performance since his elementary school days, had recorded and worked with a multitude of acts and artists over the years; but admitted finding a greater sense of freedom as a member of THE ECHOES.

The group would begin playing in New York and its surrounding areas--eventually continuing their range along the East Coast to their homestate of Kentucky--with common venues including the Baggot Inn and CBGB in Greenwich Village, the C-Note in Alphabet City, Downtime in lower Manhattan, the Orange Bear in Tribecca, and the Turning Point in Piermont, New York. Performing numerous holiday shows, festivals, and benefits in homestate towns such as Aurora and Paducah, THE ECHOES would receive airtime and radio play in both their original hometown of Louisville and adopted hometown of Cadiz; as well as in larger cities such as Lexington and Murray, Kentucky.

Their first release, a limited edition EP titled "THE ECHOES SOUND OFF," was released in 2001 and was followed by a series of CD singles throughout 2003 and 2004; culminating in their first full-length CD "LISTEN UP... IT'S THE ECHOES" released in 2005. It was ultimately the wide distribution of this CD that would earn the group a rave review from journalist Joe Viglione at / the All Media Guide and allow their music to reach an even greater audience through various broadcasts and podcasts. The year 2007 would see the release of "NOW HEAR THIS" and show the band expanding not only their repertoire, but skills as performers and recording artists.
