Escaper is a New York City band known for their sci fi dance parties that mingle with progressive psych-rock. Defined as “one who breaks free from confinement,” Escaper’s lush and complex music knows no bounds. The quartet builds intricate tracks using layer upon layer of harmonious soundscapes, transporting the listeners on an auditory journey. Their live performances are equally stunning, as they deliver dazzling improvisation alongside moving lyrics.

Escaper is known for the synergy between Will Hanza (guitar, vocals) and Phil Kadet (keys). After a brief hiatus during the initial months of the pandemic, they were joined by drummer Sam Crespo (Space Bacon) and bassist Luke Bemand (lespecial).

The band has shared stages with the likes of Jon Fishman (Phish), Karl Denson, JEDI (ft. Aron Magner and Marc Brownstein of the Disco Biscuits), Spafford and many more.
