John McGown, an Arizona musician, started playing guitar when he was 12.
He bought a bass that same year for 30 dollars and hasn't stopped playing since. After teaching himself how to play, he tried branching off between different genres he decided that he liked rock music the most. After playing the bass in shows for more than 500 people per show with his previous bands, most notably “Jasper Drive” he decided it was time to start singing. John started the band Echo 4our with Kyle Sanders in January of 2013.
Matt Gross has been an avid guitar player for the last 6 years, playing as much as he possibly can.
Started at the age of 12 Matt took lessons in his home town of Chandler, Arizona. After learning the intricacies of the guitar, Matt sought a tougher challenge and went on to learn to play the piano and bass guitar. Experimenting with a variety of genres and bands Matt never felt like he had found his perfect fit until Echo 4our.
Eric Ellis is the official drummer of Echo 4our!
He is 19 years old and currently enrolled in the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. He started playing live music in second grade, playing in various orchestras and bluegrass competitions on the violin. However, the violin did not feed his ever growing hunger to rock. That is when he decided to learn to wail. All through high school, he played in various local bands such as Silence the Hypocrisy and TSO. After years of playing locally across the Arizona valley, he is excited to branch out and continue his quest for world domination with Echo 4our!
