“Things have been looking up for Eastern Conference Champions, and they keep getting better. After parting ways with their major label, ECC embraced their new-found independence and got back to work. The trio, consisting of Joshua Ostrander, Greg Lyons and Melissa Dougherty, recently made waves when they were tapped to contribute an exclusive song for the third installment of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. The unsigned act was chosen from more than 400 bands competing for the coveted soundtrack slot, and the resulting song, “A Million Miles An Hour,” is receiving rave reviews. ECC is busy working on their full-length record SPEAK-AHH, slated for release in Spring 2011.
ECC has broadened its scope and embellished its arrangements, arriving at a tough-to-pigeonhole sound that spans barbed-wire folk, funk-flavored rebukes and wall-of-guitar anthems. – BuzzBandsLA
To hold you over until their full length release next year, ECC has gone back into the studio and produced the beautifully intimate AKUSTIKS EP.
“When we started the project the idea was just to record acoustic versions of some of our songs for the fans to have, but it’s always more fun for us to write and record new stuff, so once we got into the studio we started fleshing out some new material as well. Recording acoustic was something we’d never done before and we wanted the challenge. It really ended up being a lot of fun, and hopefully listening to it will be the same.”
