Story behind your band/artist name: Nelly’s Echo is neither a band nor a solo musician, but a concept of the musical experience associated with its creator, Nelson. They have self-released four successful albums in addition to having their version of the Bill Withers Classic, “Ain’t No Sunshine” reach #7 on the iTunes R&B charts while also having their original song, "Voices of the People" named a World Cup 2014 Super Song Top 20 semi-finalist. Since 2009, Nelly’s Echo has performed at over 500 colleges across the United States as a solo/duo act. When not on college tours, the full band regularly performs in the Mid-Atlantic region at tradition clubs and casinos as well as for personal/private events for clients such as Andretti Autosports, The Democratic National Convention after-party, The Baltimore Grand Prix, Boordy Vineyards, and Maryhill Winery, to name a few. Nelly's Echo has had the privilege of not only entertaining soldiers stationed in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba but also participated in Season 3 of The Voice as a member of Team Christina. Nelly’s Echo has taken great pride in sharing the stage with the likes of Trombone Shorty, Travis McCoy, Sean Kingston, Misterwives, Butch Walker & Boyz II Men. Relying on lessons learned from his childhood in Africa and his everyday experiences, Nelly’s Echo storytelling style has led to some comparing their musicality & storytelling to that of Jason Mraz and John Mayer. In the end, the goal of Nelly's Echo is to use music to reach the four corners of the earth, while sharing the message of positivity, life, hope, and love to everyone that it comes in contact.
