Profile
Echolyn (often styled echolyn) is an American progressive rock band based in eastern Pennsylvania, formed in 1989 and active off and on until the present. The original members were Brett Kull (guitar), Paul Ramsey (drums), Chris Buzby (keyboards), Ray Weston (vocals), and Jesse Reyes (bass). Reyes was replaced by Tom Hyatt during the recording of their debut album, and this lineup has more or less persisted, though the band went through several years of inactivity after the release of As the World in 1995. During this period, Kull and Ramsey formed Still (also known as Always Almost) and Buzby formed Finneus Gauge.
