From Platinum hit "Cool Kids" to their follow-up smash "Bright," these siblings never planned on becoming a band. Music, family and a mission to spread hope are at the core of this breakout act’s stories and sound.
With roots in a tight-knit neighborhood in Chino, California, the Sierota siblings grew up believing that people mattered and looked for ways to make their mark. A performance at a cancer fundraiser almost a decade ago planted the seed for Echosmith. Meet the people who’ve inspired them to dream big.
"There’s not a lot of unity in the world right now and I think music is one of those things that can unite people in a really cool way." – Noah Sierota
Los Angeles-based, alt-pop band Echosmith first emerged onto the scene in 2014, with the success of their debut album "Talking Dreams" and Platinum hit "Cool Kids" propelling them into the spotlight. They quickly earned rave reviews from the likes of ELLE, Rolling Stone, Teen Vogue, and Grantland for their distinctive melody-minded, New Wave-influenced sound. They’ve performed everywhere from "Ellen" and "Late Night with Seth Meyers" to the "American Idol" finale. Jimmy Fallon called them "one of the biggest breakout acts of 2015," thanks to Gold smash "Bright" and new single "Let’s Love."
The Sierotas — Sydney (vocals/keyboard), Jamie (vocals/guitar), Noah (vocals/bass), and Graham (drums) — have played to large festival crowds and sold-out shows in the U.S. and Europe, and even joined Taylor Swift in Philadelphia as special guests on her "1989 Tour."
Echosmith plans to hit the studio soon to record a new album, but in the meantime, go to any of their shows and you’ll hear the audience singing right along. "I remember the first time it happened on Warped, it seemed so weird to me," says Sydney. "I’d get the chills every time — even though it was 110 degrees. It’s just so cool to see other people as passionate about the band as we are."
