Feeling a bit camera shy


One fateful day in mid-March of 2005, Steve Solof (Disciples of Groove, Blarf, Pearl Jam cover band, Papa Cherry, Losing Ground, Matt Landis) met up with Rusty Langley (Landis, Innercore, Cutie and the Catfish) at a local show and asked if he would be interested in playing bass in a new project. Rusty accepted the invitation, and they began work immediately. Steve then called his friend and fellow guitarist Mike Donato (Infect), and within 2 weeks, the three of them had 3 songs written. Now all they needed were drums and vocals.

For drums, Steve called Shaun Bailey (the Fresh Jawn) and the 3 fellows decided he was the guy they were looking for. Shaun then contacted his close friend, the beautiful and talented Laura Hakun (Lain) about singing for the yet-to-be-named band. She auditioned, and was accepted. Over the next few months, the five members worked out a set list of original material (and one Coheed and Cambria cover) and things took off from there.

In early July though, tragedy struck the fledgling band. Fellow local rock band Days Like These lost their bass player and, needing someone to fill in immediately for their upcoming studio recording and tour, they asked Rusty. He accepted and Laura, Shaun, Steve, and Mike wished him the best of luck.

Late this August, a new addition was added to the band. Mike had contacted his close friend Ryan Goodnight to fill in on bass while the search for a permanent bassist continued. Ryan happily obliged, and jumped right into the band's extensive list of original material.

Echo to Base is presently still searching for a permanent bass player. If you or someone you know plays bass and would like to be a part of an innovative and original rock band, contact Steve Solof at

And the rest remains to be seen...
