Echosmith have announced that guitarist Jamie Sierota is leaving the band to focus on his family.
In a statement, they explained that "It’s been so incredible to see our brother Jamie shine in his new role as DAD! He is such a dedicated father and husband. In fact, after taking a lot of time to think about what is best for his family, he has decided that he’s not going to be in the band any longer."
"We know this was a very hard decision for him, and we are so supportive of his choice. We love him and will miss him so much! We are still as passionate as ever to continue making music and sharing our new album with you soon. Thank you for your continual patience and support. We love you all and will see you soon!"
