In the first of an occasional series of interviews with new bands, we talk to Dave Fawbert from new band EKKOES about producing their first album Elekktricity and touring with none other than The Human League…

We get so many requests from bands asking us to interview them at MusicTech that we’ve decided to relent and let some of the new talent shine through! So, without further ado, here’s a brand-new feature in MusicTech, called First Cut, where we open our studio doors to new bands and get them to reveal all. For this first outing, we have the UK-based act EKKOES, a trio comprising singers Jon Beck and Rosalee O’Connell, and Dave Fawbert on keyboards, guitar and programming, and whose debut album Elekktricity is out now…

MusicTech: So tell us about EKKOES… Where did you come from and where are you going to?

Dave Fawbert: I’ve been making music ever since I was about five – with the piano first, then bass, then guitar. I was lucky to learn the piano, as it gives you such a great overview of the whole musical range of things; you can visualise your top, mid and low range of notes quite easily. My most ‘natural’ instrument is definitely the bass, though, and this– again – helps on the production side of things. You’re used to being the bedrock of the sound and watching how others build on top of it, and it’s rare that you’re the focus of things, so you’re more concerned about the whole thing balancing (unless you’re playing funk, then all bets are off).
