Let’s take a ride to time gone by and pay a mind to Echo Sparks with their new killer release “Ghost Town Girl”….Wow. This is one of the best collections I’ve had the good fortune to enjoy in a long time.
“Ghost Town Girl” is like taking a ride down the sunny California strip with the top rolled down, sun in your face, hair blowing in the breeze. Old school times in the days of life gone by. Times of dirt roads, traveling medicine show’s, and gold mines. The songs on this album are transcending.
Love the application double bass and guitars and the sound of “Rolling 60’s” as they talk about the year flying by and being on the way out. Those days are not gone…just take a listen here…close your eyes…and your there.
With a little twist of folk and rockabilly this Southern California band will draw you in to a time gone by that is still rich in our minds and dreams. Those memories never fade.
Echo Sparks was formed by three exceptionally talented artists. DA Valdez was looking for an outlet for his original music. As a member of the national touring group The Pontiac Brothers, he needed that something special to express his own style. He joined up with CC Kinnick and the two began performing at various venues through out Orange County CA. Then they added the vibrant Cindy Ballreich, a phenomenal bass player in her own right. This trio had been ignited.
Their sound is old school, blues, jazz and a old Mexico rockabilly. Engineered by Walter Clevenger and Produced by Echo Sparks, this album is a hot topic and one to ad to the watch list for hit makers in 2015.

“Broken Arrow” expresses how sometimes we try to change the one’s we love and how yet we know we have to let go even if we don’t want to. It’s like a broken arrow through the heart. Really loved this one. Easy listening….has that country rock feel.
Loved the intro to “Mexican Moon”…I could picture myself in an old Mexican village, sitting at the cantina with a tequila drinking my tears away.
The mix of sounds, textures, lyrics and melodies is expertly placed in each song on this album. I really enjoyed “Shallow Water”..it has an old folk gospel rhythm to it. Loved the harmonies and the tambourine gave it the perfect touch.
Take a listen and share with your friends. Echo Sparks are amazing and exceptionally fun. Bring back you inner flower child with “Ghost Town Girl”……
