Things have been looking up for Eastern Conference Champions, and they keep on getting better. After parting ways with their major label, ECC embraced their new found independence and got back to work. The trio, consisting of Joshua Ostrander, Greg Lyons and Melissa Dougherty, self-released the "Santa Fe EP" in the Fall of 2009 which was widely received as their best offering to date. They soon realized the joys of being in full control of their music and career. "Every decision comes down to the three of us, just how it should be", says Ostrander.
The band was originally formed in Bucks County, PA when longtime friends and collaborators Ostrander and Lyons parted ways with their old group, “Laguardia”. They immediately started ECC and began writing material that would become The Southampton Collection-EP. After signing with Suretone under the Universal Music Group umbrella, they released their debut record, “Ameritown”. The album was produced by Owen Morris (Oasis, The View) and was a critical success, garnering rave reviews as the band toured the U.S. relentlessly and made an appearance on “Last Call with Carson Daly”. Always ready for the road, ECC criss-crossed the country in their van playing countless shows by themselves and supporting such acts as Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and indie rock legend Black Francis.
While earning well-deserved accolades at home in the States, ECC also turned heads abroad when “Ameritown” was released in the United Kingdom on Island/Fallout. ECC built up a loyal UK fan base and caught the attention of publications such as NME by playing anywhere and everywhere across the pond and even made their name known in Europe by supporting American indie rockers Rogue Wave.
