Echo Pearl Varsity (EPV) is cutting a new slice into the Portland, OR music scene with a burgeoning genre known as Post-Fusion. EPV draws influence from the likes of BADBADNOTGOOD, Battles, Hiatus Kaiyote, The Internet, and GoGo Penguin.
In the Spring of 2015, the three-piece pizza-shop colleagues -- lead songwriter Sam Luna, drummer Ian Taylor, and bassist Nolan Henderson -- were joined by saxophonist Levi Downey to form EPV.
EPV's album, 'Fires' will be available to stream and download on November 1, 2016; followed by a supporting tour to LA and SF. Their homecoming show in Portland will be Nov. 15th at The Liquor Store.
