Vancouver BC-based indie folk singer-songwriter Joshua Hyslop has just released his newest album entitled Echos which features eleven full-length tracks. This is Joshua’s debut album and is influenced by his day to day experiences.
The album begins with “Say It Again” which is an acoustic song mixed with piano and Joshua’s smooth vocals. This song is a good start for the album as it teases the listener with just a taste of Joshua’s talent.
“Lighter Than A Stone” was the first track that caught my attention. It’s the sixth song on the album and tells a story about continuing to live life and carrying on when times get tough and lonely. This song is very slow paced compared to some other others on the album but also very beautifully written.
The tenth song on the album is, “The Fall”, which is also Joshua’s newly released single. This song was a perfect choice for a single. It tells a story of hanging on to what you have when life gets you down and always having that one special person to help you through. The lyrics “If you fall, I will never let you go” makes for a very smooth transition in the song and will make any listener fall in love with Joshua’s voice.
Echos showcases Joshua Hyslop’s love and dedication to his music. I suggest you give this talented singer-songwriter a listen.

When I’m not drowning in assignments or deadlines I love going to concerts or small intimate shows. My pass time is usually spent listening to music, with friends or my furbabies. I love pop/rock music but slowly getting into the country scene. I could honestly list then all but it’d be a long list.
