Echo & Drake (Jon Ericson, Rich DeVito, Ryan Holmes, Carl Puglisi) is an acclaimed indie/alternative rock band from Connecticut that has garnered awards, worked with major industry figures, and won the hearts of fans around the world despite remaining truly independent throughout their career. The band formed following a chance meeting between Rich DeVito (Guitars) and Jon Ericson (Vocals, Guitars, Keys/Synths), eventually adding Carl Puglisi (Drums, Percussion) and Ryan Holmes (Bass). The band’s evocative moniker refers to the imitative and exploratory nature of songwriting as represented by Echo of Greek myth, and English explorer, Sir Francis Drake.
