Asheville, NC’s Abby Bryant and Bailey Faulkner from DownTown Abby & The Echoes have secured a fast-growing foothold in the Southeast music scene. The two formed the band out of distinctly different musical upbringings.
Listeners will find it hard not to hear similarities to some of the artists that inspire them including Tedeschi Trucks Band, Grace Potter, and Sister Sparrow and The Dirty Birds. At the same time, one cannot deny that even with the duo from DownTown Abby & The Echoes’ youthfulness, the band connects to the roots of the music in the members’ hearts. Looking to artists like Etta James, Sam and Dave, and the integral Muscle Shoals sound to light the way, DownTown Abby & The Echoes carries its own soul-shining torch into today.
DownTown Abby & The Echoes reached new heights as winner of the FloydFest 19 On-the-Rise Competition, securing the band five performances at FloydFest 2021 ~ Odyssey. Building off that success, DownTown Abby & The Echoes kicked off 2020 with authority as it completed its first Colorado tour opening for Leeds, UK-based funk heavyweight The New Mastersounds.
