In Message to Instagram Followers, Sierota Also Encourages Supporters to Register, Participate in Future Elections

Washington, DC - Lead singer Sydney Sierota of multiplatinum recording group Echosmith today marked her 18th birthday by registering to vote on RockTheVote.com – a move that she highlighted to nearly 175,000 of the band’s Instagram followers.  Sierota is the latest artist to encourage voters to register to vote using RocktheVote.com; last fall, supermodel Kendall Jenner released a similar message on National Voter Registration Day.

“It is my 18th birthday in Paris, and I just went on RockTheVote.com to register to vote,” Sierota says in her video. “Make sure that you guys are a voice in this generation too, and make sure to register as well,” she added.

“There isn’t a better way to celebrate your 18th birthday than registering to vote,” said Rock the Vote President Ashley Spillane. “Sydney is setting a great example for young people across the country, and we hope Millennials will follow her lead and commit to voting in future elections.”

About Echosmith
LA-based alt-pop band Echosmith had a truly breakout 2014, with the success of their debut album Talking Dreams and hit single “Cool Kids” propelling them into the spotlight, and now they are gearing up for an even bigger 2015 with their new single “Bright,” already charting at Top 40 and Hot AC and recently performed by the band on Late Night with Seth Meyers and Live! With Kelly and Michael. Both MTV and VH1 took notice of Echosmith in 2014 and named the band an MTV “Artist to Watch” and VH1 “You Oughta Know” Artist for the year, while “Cool Kids” dominated everywhere, charting in the Top 5 at Hot AC, Top 10 at Top 40, and in the Top 10 of the iTunes singles chart, plus Top 15 of Billboard’s “Hot 100”. The Sierota siblings - Sydney (vocals/keyboard), Jamie (vocals/guitar), Noah (vocals/bass), and Graham (drums) – performed the hit on Conan, The Today Show, Ellen, and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and earned rave reviews from the likes of ELLE,Rolling Stone, Teen Vogue, and Grantland, for their distinctive melody-minded, New Wave-influenced sound.
