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 Americana, rock and roll, country, and bluegrass, Escape On A Horse has established themselves as unique musical-storytellers in northern New Mexico. The band began in 2016 with 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 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.
Their second album Homeland was released on September 17, 2021. The album features contributions from local musical favorites Dave Devlin (banjo, dobro, steel guitar), Lance Highers (keyboards, harmonica), and Stephanie Lenchard-Warren (vocals). Jack The Joker featured on Homeland was awarded Best Western song at the 2022 New Mexico Music Awards. The band also welcomed Kevin Boyko on bass guitar in 2021.
