The Echoing Green is an electronica/synthpop band. It began as a duo between Joey Belville and Aaron Bowman in 1992, and has since released eleven major albums.
While founder Belville is a devout Christian, it is difficult to apply the same label to the band itself. While the lyrics are at times clearly infused with a strong element of faith, they are not strictly praise. Christian artists also make occasional appearances. For instance, Riki Michele provided vocals on "Defend Your Joy", though she was uncredited for the part.
On February 21, 2011, the band announced their completion of mastering on a new album, In Scarlet and Vile, which later went to release on March 11, 2011. Digital and physical versions have been released through iTunes and A Different Drum, respectively.
