Formed in 2009, Echosmith is a Los Angeles based band of siblings known for its emo and ‘80s dance-rock sound. After signing with Warner Bros in 2012, the band opened for Owl City in 2013 before having their big breakout year in 2014 - when they were named an MTV “Artist to Watch” and VH1 “You Oughta Know” Artist.
Echosmith has earned three US hits to date: “Cool Kids,” which peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2014; “Bright,” which reached No. 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2015; and “Let’s Love,” which charted at No. 25 on the Billboard Adult Top 40 in 2015.
The band has been featured in Rolling Stone, USA Today, Billboard, TeenVogue and other publications. ELLE dubbed “Cool Kids” as “an ageless anthem.” The band has performed on Ellen, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Live! With Kelly and Michael, Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Today Show and many other national TV broadcasts.
JSU is honored to host Echosmith as their star continues to rise and shine “Bright.” The concert is presented by the Student Government Association.
