DownTown Abby & The Echoes captures the spirit of old soul while emphasizing its youthful energy and fresh songwriting.
DTA takes influence from the work of Bonnie Raitt, Sam and Dave, Tedeschi Trucks Band and Grace Potter & The Nocturnals among many other titans of soul, blues, and southern rock. The Asheville, NC-based band is heavily touring the Southeast to bring its fresh take on soul to a fast-growing fan base. Named winner of the FloydFest 19 On-the-Rise Competition, DownTown Abby & The Echoes is more focused than ever on its mission to bring funky, dance-inducing original tunes to the Southeast’s most popular festivals and music venues.
The band recently released “Roll with Me,” the first single from DTA’s upcoming debut album set for release in Spring 2020.
