Joe Echo - new single on iTunes

Killing Bono songwriter Joe Echo has a new single 'Wonderful Way' available now on iTunes.

The Hot Press Newsdesk, 12 Apr 2010

Echo has written, recorded and co-produced the songs for Killing Bono, the movie based on former Hot Press writer Neil McCormick’s memoirs of his school years with U2. Described as an “Irish music-based comedy” it’s written by Ian Le Frenais and Dick Clement, who also wrote The Commitments. Filming began in Belfast in January and the film’s international release, along with Sony’s soundtrack album, is scheduled for later this year.

Following writing stints in 2009 with various established artists, from Paul Oakenfold to Groove Armada, the year ended with a Grammy nomination for Madonna’s worldwide hit ‘Celebration’ which he wrote with Madonna and Oakenfold. Meanwhile, Joe has almost completed his first solo album and is looking forward to live shows running through the Summer. His live work to date has included appearances with The Script, Paolo Nutini, James Morrison, Powderfinger and Eskimo Joe among others. Last October he toured Australia for the first time, playing a major festival in Perth, plus shows with Nutini and several headline club dates.
