Northern New Mexico is a place that inspires many tales. Tales of ramblers, ghosts, and outlaws. In its high mountains, hot deserts, and diverse towns, the Land of Enchantment is where musical tales are told, drawing out the legends of the past to mix with characters of the present.
It is the place where Escape on a Horse calls their home.
Drawing from the musical styles of rock and roll, country, bluegrass, and alternative, Escape on a Horse has established themselves as unique musical-storytellers in northern New Mexico. The band began in 2016 as a collaboration of Daniel Jaramillo, David Fellenz, Allisyn Stanfield, Andrew Stocker, and Ryan Little. The band got to work on self-producing and releasing their debut album in 2018 and it was nominated in 2019 for Best Country album by the New Mexico Music Awards. Following this nomination, David "Dog-House" Holtkamp joined the band on the mandolin and Seth Greenfield joined on bass guitar. Escape on a Horse has gained a strong following in 2019 reaching broad audiences across New Mexico and into the greater American Southwest. They have shared the stage with a variety of musicians including Grant Farm, Inaiah Lujan, Liver Down the River, and national country superstar James Carothers.
Like so many people in 2020, Escape On a Horse has seen dramatic changes. Despite the challenges of COVID-19, cancellations of concerts, growing awareness of and involvement in social justice issues, and personal struggle, the band continues to establish themselves as part of the musical family in New Mexico. The band has established their own online virtual concert streaming to continue playing live shows for fans to enjoy from home. They have also began recording their long-awaited second full album release amidst the COVID-19 epidemic with help from many musical companions including Lance Highers, Ryan Little, David Devlin, and Stephanie Lenchard-Warren.
While so many things have come to a stand-still, Escape On a Horse feels like they are just getting started and are emerging as a truly unique musical force in the Land of Enchantment.
