Echosmith’s Rise to Fame
The band was managed by their father, who is a producer as well as a songwriter, and helped develop each band member and also co-wrote several of the band’s songs. In 2013, Echosmith started to gain attention and was named as one of the 100 Bands You Need To Know by the Alternative Press. They released a single through YouTube entitled “Come Together” which was accompanied by a music video which was filmed in Los Angeles, California. Further promoting their music, they launched a free download promo on their website which contained songs such as “Cool Kids”, and “Talking Dreams”.
A month later, they performed a free concert in Burbank, California at Warner Bros. Records which streamed simultaneously through their YouTube channel. They eventually got a feature through ESPN performing various songs. They also participated in the 2013 Vans Warped Tour and then became an opening act for Owl City during their tour of the United States.
