Band Of The Week: Escondido


Nashville locals, Jessica Maros and Tyler James struck gold when they casually decided to go from friends to band mates. The duo formed two years ago in October after meeting at a mutual friend’s home. Jess, a former clothing designer whose handmade gowns have been worn to events such as the Oscars and CMA’s was hanging out while James was recording in their friends studio. The story goes, “Jess was quietly strumming this song Rodeo Queen on the couch while everyone else was making drinks in the kitchen. I pushed record and added a little groove before folks got back in the room. Later that night, we listened to it and both said, ‘You wanna make a record?” This could quite possibly be the best encounter Jessica and Tyler ever had. The two months following, resulted in the creation of, The Ghost of Escondido, a ridiculously modern and soulful indie-desert-country album.

Heavily influenced by western and 70's music, these two bring new light to hopeless romantics with soft ballads mixed with some twang. Maros' voice immediately reminds you of Hope Sandoval's vocals from Mazzy Star, and anyone who knows Mazzy Star knows that we mean that as a compliment. The instrumentation can range from more pop influenced sounds such as Tom Petty, to straight up country ballads, all the way to alt country sound a-la Wilco or Ryan Adams.” We recommend, “Black Roses” for your first listen to feel this bands vibe.
