Artist Biography
Echo Hill is a four-piece rock band birthed from the friendship of current guitar player Alex Laudani and current bass player Dylan Coates. The pair clicked instantly through their taste in music and when they decided to combine their musical talents their writing chemistry became undeniable. Laudani and Coates wrote and recorded demos non-stop through out high school. Eventually after years of basement dwelling they could no longer surpress the urge to showcase their creations with the world. In the process of doing so, the pair came across current drummer: Keith Miller in 2010. After about a week or two of jamming as a trio, a band was born.

The boys quickly developed a unique sound inspired from their favorite bands (Incubus, Rage Against The Machine, Linkin Park) which left them with the final task of finding a singer. In 2011 Laudani, Coates, and Miller found their lead singer, Rob Altenbuger and named the project Echo Hill. The name spawned from an original song stemming from the idea that anything you put out into the universe remains. In late 2011 Echo Hill embarked on a long 6 month recording process. The final product, the Echo Hill EP, was released in May 2012. Although receiving great reception from friends and family the boys decided to part ways with Rob and seek something new.
On the quest to find a new male front-man, Echo Hill stumbled across Monique Teichert. Although hesitant to let a girl be the face of their project, they gave her a chance and were surprised at the life she brought to their work and live performances. The four naturally became a family and were so confident with their new lineup that they decided to hit the studio again with producer Brad Franklin in February 2013. After 3 months of recording, Echo Hill finished and released their second and current EP- Namaste. Namaste received great recognition for its catchy guitar driven rock style and energetic live show. The band continues to grow and has plans to begin an LP in the future.
