American Echoes is a duo that fuses identical twins Laura and Nina Ganci's influences based largely in Rhythm & Blues and Folk. They create a slight tension by the exploratory twisting of musical styles, enhanced by Laura’s diverse acoustic and electric guitar riffs, and their melodic harmonies that wax and wane from raspy to ethereal as they bounce across in stereo to deliver an emphatic experience. Laura and Nina have recently been joined by drummer Matt Carlson and Matt Smith on bass for a bigger, badder sound.
American Echoes has a loyal following in New York, Connecticut, and their home, Boston, playing some of the most respected venues in each location. They are just about to release their second EP titled "Hungry". You can hear their first, self-titled EP on Spotify. The dynamic juxtaposition of the sisters in voice and in aura is captivating, as is their live show backed by the cleverly mixed in bottom line of both Matts'. You can't help but be enraptured, they are bound to leave an echoing impression.
The band performed alongside several other Jamaica Plain based musicians at last years JP Music Festival. They will be performing an hour long duo set at Tres Gatos on Monday, June 5th.
