Warped Tour 1: Echosmith & Sea Swallowed Us Whole

This Saturday at Vans Warped Tour, Richie T and his team of expert producers recorded 5 straight hours of interviews - that's around 25 artists FYI. Over the next few weeks, we'll be releasing videos of these interviews on the daily: bands like Less Than Jake, Real Friends, We Are The In Crowd, The Ready Set and tons more! 

Our first installment includes Echosmith - the family band behind the summer hit "Cool Kids", and local Warped Tour competition winners Sea Swallowed Us Whole. Clips of the interviews are below. 

Head over to MeetTheBands.com to see the full interviews!

Echosmith

— This ain’t your typical family road trip —

Jamie: I think people get in their mind the idea of a family road trip, like what we’re doing is an endless family road trip. The big difference for us is that we’re all working and we’re not just being forced to be in a car together. We’re all doing it by choice and working towards a common goal, so it’s a different aspect than being on a 2-year road trip. We’re all actually working. When we’re all working, we’re all working together. When we all want to relax, we’re all relaxing together.

Sea Swallowed Us Whole

— Inspiration from the Provo Music Scene —

Chris: We recorded our last EP – the one that’s coming out on August 16 – we recorded it with our producer, Stetson Whitworth, and he’s actually pretty good friends with Quinn [from The Used]…So I have actually gotten a few chances where Quinn’s been in the studio – cuz they’re friends – and he’s sat down with me a few times and honestly has inspired me, in terms of being a musician. Especially coming from Utah, he helped realize that Utah bands can make it. You just have to be The Used or better.
