The Temple Lounge is hosting a Karaoke/Rock Band contest over the next couple of months. Echo attended Wednesday night, not intending to enter the contest. She sang "Cowboy's Sweetheart" and was named one of the three finalists that night, despite not entering. Apparently, the KJ entered everyone who sang that night into the contest. Semi-finals are the last two Wednesdays of June, and the finals are the first Wednesday of July. Stop by and show your support!

This new single from Sonar features her good friend, Aaron Parees, who helped to finish writing the song. Included with the song is an acoustic version of Let You Go that has been unreleased until now. Check it out.
At the request of her friends, Echo helped to write a song as a gift for Mother's Day. Aaron and Josh Parees, close friends of Echo, came up with the idea and Echo brought it to life. The song features three very special verses: one from Aaron, one from Josh, and one from Echo. Above All Else is a landmark as the three co-writers wrote their verses seperately, not hearing each other's work (aside from the music track Echo laid down) until it was time to put the whole song together. They recorded the song as a single, but it was not released to the public at the request of Echo's co-writers. "It's a private gift to our mothers," says Echo. If you're a nightowlmusic.net member, you can listen to the instrumental track and a clip of the verse Echo wrote in the voice section.
The brand new album from Echo! It's here! Firelight includes 8 of Echo's original songs. Also featured on the album are Echo's friends: Mary Sherwood, Rachel Meyers, Tina Boerem, Matt Ward, and Josh Froom.
