BLUE SHIFT consists of songs recorded live in front of a live audience at St. Mary's Episcopal Church in Harlem, NY, May 14, 2013. BLUE SHIFT is the first album
adding the "live momentum" to the studio album trilogy of BLUE, RED and GREEN.
RED the second album in Echo Bloom's Colors trilogy, finds the band wrapping their songs around a core of country and rock, combining feedback-drenched guitars
and thundering drums with orchestral strings and banjo into a unique mixture that's equal parts Tom Petty and My Bloody Valentine. Echo Bloom, led by Kyle Evans, has become a road-hardened group after the release of their 2015 record Blue, which No Depression magazine described as "a
masterpiece (Lee Zimmerman)„. The band embarked on several extensive tours that brought them across Europe and the US, getting the band into a tight recording unit. After bouncing between Washington DC, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, Kyle Evans eventually caught the muse he was searching for in Berlin. Completely submerged
in the German culture, Evans found inspiration in dusty libraries along the Spree and long, quiet bike rides through the city. He holed up in an apartment and woodshedded for months, the seclusion allowing
him the perfect environment to completely focus on his work. After a few months, he left Germany with material for three records. Because each album seemed to fit into slightly different
genres, Evans began thinking about them as different seasons, different countries and finally, different colors. 'Blue' would be the more folk-oriented of the group, 'Red' would be more
country rock, and 'Green' would be more classic pop.
Today the quartet adds Aviva Jaye on alto vocals and piano, Alex Minier on bass, and Cody Rahn on percussions.
