Echo Island is a project consisting of Madison musician Brad Hawes. After performing with several Madison bands including The Projection People and The Cemetery Improvement Society, Brad started Echo Island in an effort to push personal boundaries.
"Plenty of people in Madison will recognize Brad Hawes as the focused drummer who pounded The Projection People’s songs to life on the back of the stage. But with his new solo project, Echo Island, he’s pushing his way to the front by supplementing his regular kit with all manner of electronics. Bangers like “Acousticophobia” share some sonic symmetries with Madison beatsmith Man Mantis—whose “I Believe” EI remixed in 2011—but the gorgeous, slow-building “These Buildings Are Islands…” stands apart. The music has real movement and deals in dramatic flourishes, but the real fun is watching him recreate it in a live setting." - Madison A.V. Club
"...and Madison’s Brad Hawes, otherwise known as Echo Island, whose sparkling melodies loop over his delectable beats." - 91.7 WMSE
"At its best, In Circles is shockingly touching and catchy..." -The Isthmus
