Echo Helstrom, the "orchestral rock band." It's the violin and upright bass added to the usual rock array that makes them so. That, plus adventuresome arrangements and songs that run the gamut from chamber music to punk rock with much else in between. Echo Helstrom is "a combination of raw emotional power with sophisticated melodic beauty (Joseph Gallivan)," it's "Kurt Cobain meets Leonard Bernstein (The Oregonian)". Echo Helstrom, not quite straight-ahead rock nor top 40 pop. It's unique, original, and word is spreading fast about the "dreamy yet observational songwriting [with] surprising flashes of rock aggression (The Oregonian)." Echo was recently featured in the Feb. issue of Mother Jones Magazine. Echo Helstrom is in the middle of an extensive commercial Radio campaign and has been playlisted in N.Y., Washington, Florida, Colorado, Mich., S. Carolina, Alabama, Montana, Tenn., Vermont, and Penn. US Tour Summer 2007.
