One of the hottest new bands on the Vans Warped Tour last summer was Echosmith, a four-piece indie-pop group out of Southern California. The female-fronted band is a family affair – Sydney Sierota is the lead singer, while her brothers Jamie (guitar), Noah (bass) and Graham (drums) round out the quartet. 

Signing to Warner Bros. Records in 2012, the band got their first break when their single "Tonight We're Making History" was featured in a promo for the Summer Olympics on NBC. They spent this summer on the Warped Tour and released their debut album, Talking Dreams, shortly afterward in October. 

The young band – only Jamie is over 20 years old – chimes in now with a playlist of their favorite indie songs, new and old, to accompany tonight's Season 2 premiere of Warped Roadies. The show airs at 11/10C with a special hour-long episode on Fuse! Be sure to tune in and catch music from Echosmith, along with plenty of other bands, as we follow the Roadies throughout the summer-long extravaganza that is the Vans Warped Tour.
