Fueled by a volatile blend of emotion, experience, imagination and intuition, Nico Rivers has been haunting stages across the USA since his youth. His unique, one-man band performances are filled with a raw passion that captivates audiences of all sorts.


Jakals released their debut album in May 2017. On Keep Mother Sane, Jakals question what it means to be sane in a society that doesn’t seem to be sane itself. They lay bare a reality of hollow communication, strained interactions, profound loneliness, and an intense desire to be understood.

After bouncing between Washington DC, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, Echo Bloom’s founder, 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.
