ECHOREV is an international duo that sings songs, drops beats, and builds spaceships that will take you on a journey from the light into the darkness and back again.
Johnny Nicholson (California) and Jörn Bielfeldt (Germany) craft a new breed of electronic pop. They perform songs propelled by soaring vocals and dynamic instrumental layering, mixing raw and ethereal sounds, with “anthem quality and many a sing-a-long moment.” (The Owl Magazine).
Since the release of their debut album, Find North (September 2011), and their last EP – The Mermaid & The Astronaut (June 2012) the duo has performed over 150 shows across Europe and the U.S.
Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, Johnny Nicholson, and experimental German drummer, Jörn Bielfeldt found each other at Berklee College of Music, in Boston at the end of ’08. There the two began defining the sound that would become ECHOREV. Johnny, a California native, had toured the country as a solo performer, developing an ever-expanding and evolving catalog of not-so-traditional folk pop songs. Anchored in his natural, soulful vocal delivery and intricate finger picking guitar style, Johnny’s songs-as-tone-poems took on a new light in collaboration with Jörn. With roots in electronic music, hip-hop, and free improvisation, Jörn’s unorthodox, driving, and melodic approach to the drums helped ECHOREV develop an “eclectic yet distinct sound” (Crayonbeats). Johnny and Jörn continue to push the boundaries of a duo, with their brand of “melodic, intelligent, and skillfully-made rock music…” (SHZ).
With their moniker inspired by the French word for ‘dream’ – ‘rêve’, the band is sharing their dreams with audiences worldwide.
