TheEscapePlan is a pop/rock band from morgantown West Virginia, With Sounds Associated With bands like The Fray, The Script, One Republic, and Switchfoot, but with a unique rhythmic feel of their very own. Their music varries from standard Pop/rock tunes like "All for You", to More funk based piano tracks like, "Mr. Scientist". Frontman Isaac Sharp said, "We just want people to be able to sing along and dance to any of our songs."
TheEscapePlan was formed in early 2011, consisting of founding members: Isaac Sharp, Nate Friend, Jared Dennis and Benjamin Dickey. Ben and Sharp both were attending Fairmont State University at the time, while Nate and Jared were finishing their Sr. year at Trinity Christian school. When the school year ended, Jared left for college at Olivet Nazarene University. Jared was replaced by current guitarist Corey Rexroad.
Now all band members are in college, Sharp is still at FSU. Friend is at West Virginia Wesleyan College. Rexroad attends WVU, and Ben is working through Fullsail online university.
The Band has developed a strong resume for as young as it is, having played on stages with artists such as the Taylor Shea Band, Kaleo, and Aaron Gillespie. They are currently working on finishing up their debut recording "Hope on the Horizon" at Treelady studios in Pittsburgh, PA. (Artists associated with Treelady are: whiz Kalifa, The Hide and Seek Effect, Fall out Boy, and Flyleaf)
The Band are also all strong Christians, They are all worship leaders at their various churches, and Isaac even works as a youth leader in Grafton, WV.
Isaac Said, "The goal of this band isn't to preach to people, or to get away from 'Christian music', we have realized that there are people who wont listen to christian music, and we want to provide them with good moral songs, and a loving relationship to show that even in a mainstream environment, we can still display the love and character of Christ for all to see. I think, if that can be our witness, that we can be a group of guys who arent arrogant and display love then we can really have an impact on what people think about Jesus, and Christians."
The band hit the scene early spring 2011, and hasn't stopped running since. Look for their high energy shows in a venue near you.
