The literal definition of Escaper is "one who escapes confinement". Founded in 2016, the Brooklyn based Post-Rock/Space-Funk Fusion quintet strive for a sound without limits.
Recently joining the Ropeadope Records roster, Escaper blends soaring melodies provided by Will Hanza (guitars) with funk-laced rhythms laid down by Andrew Nesbitt (drums) and Jay Giacomazzo. Weaving through this sound are the intricate yet lyrical textures of Adam Ahuja (keys) and Johnny Butler (sax). Album was engineered and co-produced by John Davis (Lettuce, Brad Mehldau, Black Keys)
The members are all experienced musicians, working with groups like Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, and even Beyonce. Band members have played everywhere from Bonnaroo, Mountain Jam and Catskill Chill to Brooklyn Bowl and the Blue Note Jazz Club.
Escaper released their debut track "Castles" on December of 2016 and will release a full album in May of this year.
