The Echelon Effect came to life amid the long winter nights of February 2009, born from a burning desire to fall in love with music again. It started with a laptop and an idea: write a track, and make it huge. But one track became four, an EP that needed an audience. The tracks were posted on MySpace. And people began to listen. ‘Leaving It Behind’ was followed by two more EPs and remixes for The Appleseed Cast and City Breathing.
