Hailed as “The most dynamic Americana group out of Detroit, Michigan” Escaping Pavement masterfully blends and blurs the lines of Bluegrass, Folk, and Americana. Their unique joint frontperson arrangement, with Emily and Aaron sharing equally in singing, songwriting, and guitar playing allows for harmony-driven, musical interplay that has earned them slots on bills with the likes of The Dead South, Tim O’Brien Band, Justin Townes Earle and Joan Osborne. With a 2017 Detroit Music Award win for Outstanding Americana Record, over 1000 shows under their belt, a musical project that is inspired by and champions the National Parks, and a non-stop touring schedule, this duo is spreading their roots-based message, far and wide. Find out why John Sinkevics of west Michigan-based blog/publication/radio show, Local Spins, said of EP’s latest release, “ “Road Warrior embodies everything that makes Escaping Pavement tick as an extraordinary acoustic duo: stirring harmonies, splendid hooks, bluegrass-worthy instrumental charm and a passion for Michigan’s, “White Pines” and the treasures found in traveling America’s highways…..” Escaping Pavement will be debuting new music as well as some re-imagined holiday music. Join us for a cozy evening with the EP trio!
