Stages Presents: Nelly’s Echo

Nelly’s Echo’s mission is to make music that is “the soundtrack to your life”. Read on to learn more about this unique artist ahead of his performance here at Stages on April 6th.

Nelson Emokpae, known on stage as Nelly’s Echo, is a Baltimore-based artist that defies genres. He refers to music as a “two-way street” and “a give and a take”, explaining that “‘Nelly’ refers to me, the musician, creating the ambience and ‘Echo’ refers to the audience’s appreciation of that ambience,”.

He has shared the stage with artists including Sean Kingston, Boyz II Men, Travis McCoy, and Trombone Shorty.
