Andy here. Like most people who spend their day unsupervised in front of a computer, I spend way too much time on Reddit. A couple of months ago I came across a post in the /r/indie subreddit from this new boutique guitar shop, Rusty Frets. The owner was seeking bands to feature on his site. I thought this was pretty neat. Gear’s obviously important to musicians and shapes a band’s sound. For I shot him a message, telling him about Echo Nebraska (at this point we had only launched the band a week earlier). We planned to do the interview closer to the release of Send the Ships, and kept in touch.
This week the interview came out. We talk about what new bands can do to get of the ground, and of course get into what kind of gear our band is using.
You can read it here.
I just want to thank Bryan from Rusty Frets for featuring us on his site. We hope to eventually make it down to Oregon and stop by the shop!
There is one bum note this story, however. The morning I came across this post, I purchased a Keeley 4 Knob Compressor from Amazon. I was super stoked about it, until I saw this on Rusty Fret’s website….
How cool is that? As much I love the Keeley, that finish would have been so much sweeter.
