SYLVAN ESSO, a band of two made up of vocalist Amelia Meath and DJ Nicholas Sanborn, was created in 2013. They were founded on the production of Play it Right. Meath asked Sanborn to remix her song, and the product was something quite remarkable. This convinced both to band together and become Sylvan Esso. This band creates an emotional and energetic vibe from the incorporation of bass, crisscrossing harmonies, and electropop sounds. Neither dj nor vocalist take away qualities from the music which often can happen, but both combine to create a sensual, addictive sound. Below is the song that brought the two together.
I come from a small beach town in Southern California where I grew up with my parents and six siblings. Currently, I am a sophomore studying philosophy at Hillsdale College, Michigan. Along with the tough academics, I enjoy sports and am on the Women’s basketball team. I have always loved music-but my interest really took off when I went to the Lightning in a Bottle festival in CA. I love music and am constantly thankful for all the inspiration I receive when I listen to music.
