About
Acoustic Echoes offers a solo singer-guitarist act as well as a flute and guitar duo.

For my solo singer-guitarist act, I sing and play acoustic guitar through a discrete but high-quality sound system, playing a crowd-pleasing mix of classic pop and soft rock songs and instrumentals, weaving a rich, mellow acoustic sound, careful to tailor my volume for the comfort of the guests. On suitable songs, I incorporate loop and octave pedals, enabling me to capture chord sequences live and then add lead and bass parts to the arrangements.

I always dress business-casual, suitable for weddings and corporate events, and my setup includes color-changing ambient lighting which adds visually to the performance.

For a classy instrumental sound, I can also offer the Acoustic Echoes Flute and Guitar Duo, which features classically trained flutist Stephanie Pack, and offers a set list rich with pop, jazz, classical, and even progressive rock influences. The duo is especially ideal for wedding ceremonies, when you want that special piece of music for the processional, candle lighting, or recessional. While we often play through our quality sound system, the natural balance between flute and acoustic guitar means we can also offer a beautiful unamplified sound for small venues or intimate dining situations.

Ours was a private party and we were very pleased with Colin's professionalism, his talent,his quick response to emails and his ability to entertain without being intrusive so our guests could still visit with one another. He followed up with us both before and after the event. We received numerous compliments from our guests on his performance. Well done!

I was pleasantly surprised to be able to book Acoustic Echoes on such short notice. Even more pleasantly surprised by how much my party guests enjoyed the music! Since the rain kept the 40 of us indoors, it was really nice to have the music. I hope Acoustic Echoes will want to play NEXT year at this annual party!

I would hire again and recommend Colin to anyone for their event. He was incredibly accommodating to song requests and some last minute changes and it was nice to work with someone so laid back when other parts of the event (wedding) were getting a little crazy. He played great sets and his music choices were exactly what we wanted. Also, he wasn't so loud that we couldn't talk during the reception - that was very appreciated. Thank you Colin!
