There was plenty of promise in store for Smithtown’s Echo Hill as the calander turned to 2014, but yesterday the band took to the Internet on Thursday to announce their need for a vocalist: Monique Teichert, has left the band.
Despite all the recent successes our band parted ways with our vocalist Monique this week. This band is a huge commitment and she didn’t share our vision. Moving forward we are seeking someone who shares the same passion as we do and who is dedicated to pursuing music.
The band cited the many publications, including our own, in which the band has appeared over the past year since Teichert joined the band. Indeed, the band’s popularity had appeared to be taking off after spearheading a local music festival last summer, and started branching out into gigs in New York City. When we spoke with the band, they expressed plans to perform upstate in the near future.
Laudani described the news as being “pretty devastating” as he responded by text message this afternoon. But, he said, the band is confident they will find a good replacement.
