Sydney, Noah and Graham Sierota, siblings from Southern California, make up the musical group Echosmith. The talent within this family is unbelievable, and the connection they have made with their fans is even more so.

Echosmith spent Friday evening at the Cleveland House of Blues, a stop on their tour promoting the Inside a DreamEP released last fall.

Opening the show for Echosmith were two very different acts: Jena Rose, a 17-year-old from Texas with style for days and beautifully rich vocals, and The Score, a male rock duo from Los Angeles who resemble top rock bands like Fall Out boy and Imagine Dragons. Both had the crowd singing along and set the tone for the rest of the night.

The vocals on Echosmith frontwoman Sydney resemble the early days of Taylor Swift—which were arguably Swift’s best days—and her band of brothers back her up with a self-described “dreamy pop” sound. The synths were heavenly, their performance was so simple, and the retro pink and green lighting was beautiful. It was an incredible show and a much different vibe than the other shows coming through Cleveland as of late.

It was as if they wanted the crowd to feel as if they were in a dream as well. Sydney tossed beautiful flowers into the audience and showered them with love the whole night. It was a magical experience to be a part of.

Fans were clad in just about every form of Echosmith merchandise and were clearly excited for the chance to hear some new music. The band of siblings has not released an album since 2013, so this tour was long waited for by many fans.

Not wanting to wait until a full album was released to go on tour, the band filled the setlist with new and older tracks and even a few covers. The music this time around perfectly represented the years of growth the now twenty-something threesome has gone through since their first album which they released as teens. 

The emotional and thoughtful performance by the three young musicians was something fans will remember for a long time.  I encourage everyone to check out their latest EP and catch them next time they stop in Cleveland.

Writing and Music are my two favorite things, so getting to combine them both by being an NEO Music Scene content creator is a great opportunity. I am from the Westside of Cleveland, but I have recently moved downtown. My favorite music genres are alt, rock, and indie, but I am hoping to broaden my music taste as much as possible through this experience. I look forward to connecting with Cleveland's biggest music fans and learning a lot from my fellow content creators and editors.
