The Escapes music is a blend of jazz, soul, funk, and pop, taking inspiration from bands such as Hiatus Kaiyote, Dirty Loops, John Mayer, Vulfpeck, Paramore, Raelee Nikole and Stevie Wonder. Merged through a happy accident, the Escapes were connected in September 2015 and haven’t stopped writing and performing since. The five members of the band, Max and Rhett Cunningham, Isobel Ralph, Keely Ramage-Scott, and Jack Wells all make the Escapes something exciting and intriguing.
In January 2018, the band was signed to a development contract with 604 Records of Vancouver and have worked closely with the likes of Louise Burns and Dave Genn of 54-40. They are in for a very busy summer full of performing and recording.
