Ecotone Refugees is and are a four piece rock/psych band out of Brooklyn, New York. They have influences that range from the stoner rock of Sabbath, psych of Floyd and the innovation of QOTSA, also with the harder edge of modern rock. "One thing that must be said about Ecotone Refugees is that they are a band unlike any others... I tried to think of the best way to describe the band, but all I came up with was original. The guitar parts range from influences as metal, punk, and even some psychedelic parts. The vocals are the standout of this band. They are pure electric. The vocals are old-school and gets a strong response from the soul..", says Metal Mark McPheeters - Target Audience Magazine He also said 'The different elements of this band may sound like chaos to some people, but it's smartly crafted once you break it down." Johnny says" "The one conscious choice we make is to stay away from traditional chord changes." This band is the fusion of all the rock we like. Johnny came of tour with Kreisor, (Teepee Records), opening for UFO to start this band with Dave. He has been licensing music for years. Dave sang and co-wrote Mirror, which is currently available on the soundtrack from The Wrestler, available on Koch Records. This collection was recorded using guitar, bass and drums and keyboards played with no electronic tricks whether recording or playing live. All the tracks were recorded at Johnny's Horizon Sound studio in Brooklyn using performance and traditional mixing techniques. The band is Johnny Young and David Weise both singing lead and background vocals, (when the other sings lead) Johnny plays, guitar, Moog, and keys. He has played piano since childhood and guitar for 10 years. David Weise plays bass most of the time. Dave has been writing and singing in local bands and recently picked up the bass. His approach on bass is to play traditional patterns to support the improv of the band. David is a bar stool poet. Sean Egan, often known as Eganz, plays guitar, Moog, and bass. Sean, both a guitar shredder and a unique bass player sometimes likes to slow it down to create dynamics and concentrate on exploration. He shows off his great bass skills on the track Losing Your Faith and plays the Moog in the live show, a true multi-instrumentalist. The Ecotone refugees are excited to play and record and are eager to make new fans. You can buy this at CDbaby.com or Amazon or itunes or Rhapsody, etc.
