Who is Echo Drop?
ECHO: voice | DROP: drums (as in “drop a beat”)
Our dynamic husband-and-wife duo met many moons ago while on tour. It was love at first sight. (We won’t bore you with the details, just know they’re sappy … like Ross and Rachel sappy.)
Some have called them the”Ultimate Couple Friends” — it has a nice ring to it, don’t ya think? But truly, they’re regular folk with an appreciation for both the simpler things (snuggles, the sound of birds, a hot cup of coffee) and the finer things (travel, wine, foodie-food). And then, of course, there’s their shared, life-altering love of music.
When you’re a singer and a drummer and want to start a duo, you’ve got to get creative. The twosome has done just so, forming Echo Drop in 2014, with piano and bass sequencer to round out their sound. It’s cool stuff! Think classy R&B-rock vibe; Alanis Morissette meets Mariah Carey with a touch of Zeppelin. But don’t just take our word for it; check it out: Listen, Watch
Meet Jill & Sean (aka Mr. & Mrs. Mitchell)
Echo Drop’s better half, Jillian Mitchell, is an avid book worm, certified Starbucks Coffee Master and eternal music lover. Singing professionally for over 15 years, Jill is the owner/founder of Voxsana vocal coaching and is currently authoring her first book. The self-professed lifelong learner has studied with celebrity vocal coaches Owen “Fiidla” Brown (Mary J. Blige), Giovanna Gattuso, John Deaver (Sara Bareilles) and most currently, Juno nominee Emm Gryner. Fun fact: Jill can recite all the dialogue in Disney’s The Little Mermaid.
Sean Mitchell is a bon vivant and coffee-snob-in-training (with a strong affinity for Starbucks’ Italian Roast). To quote the legendary Ron Burgundy, Sean is “kind of a big deal” in the drumming world, as the publisher of the globally read online drum magazine The Black Page. Playing professionally for over 18 years, Sean has studied under many drumming giants including Dom Famularo (international drum clinician), Mitch Dorge (Crash Test Dummies) and Zoro (Lenny Kravitz). Fun fact: As a youngster, Sean used to play Kiss on top the toy box; he was Gene Simmons.
