Eko Collective is a songwriter’s collective made up of Julia Turner, Lauren Bradford and Isolde. As well as coming together to share a stage and support each other’s individual work the three collaborate as a cappella vocal project, The Eko Trio. With a contrast in their individual sounds, ranging from jazz and soul to folk and electronica, each artist brings something fresh to the table and together they find a common ground in vocal harmony. Presenting a modern twist on vintage and traditional a capella singing, the trio incorporate songs about cutlery polishing, grumpy London commuters and Appalachian mountains, where their sound can be experimental, sometimes comical and always beautiful.
October ‘15 sees the Eko Trio launching their debut single ‘Cutlery Shed’, in cutting-edge wooden-spoon format, with a five date UK tour including Oxford, Bath, Bristol, London and Leeds. Eko will also be hosting a series of introductory singing workshops alongside selected concert dates, exploring a cappella singing, improvisation, and creative sound making.
