Escape Sequence is a new hard rock/metal band founded by brothers Ryan(22) and Scott(17) Williams. The Jacksonville, FL based band combines a commercial hard rock sound with the technical elements found in bands like Avenged Sevenfold and Bullet for My Valentine. “I really think we are bringing a unique sound to this genre, and we’re excited to share it with everyone” says vocalist/guitarist Ryan Williams.
The band’s first single “Takedown,” received attention from labels and publishing companies within 24 hours of its release. The band’s debut self-titled EP was released on 1-05-2015. Upon release of the EP, the band was contacted by Artist Reach, a music company founded by Saturday Night Live Sound Engineer Justyn Brodsky, and told they were placed on NBC/Universal’s Upcoming Artist/Band Roster. Escape Sequence has also partnered with other online music sites like Outbound Music, Pulse Underground Radio, and Skope Entertainment Inc.
“We’ve grown up together writing and playing music, so we decided it was time to get serious” says drummer Scott Williams. No strangers to the industry, both brothers have had their share of professional experiences. Ryan performed the United States National Anthem on guitar to over 11,000 people in a sold-out arena. He has also actively posted YouTube videos of his playing since 2008 racking up over 180,000 views. Scott has connected with many famous drummers such as Matt Halpern of Periphery and Danny Gottlieb of Pat Metheny Group. He endorses Battlefield Drum Co. and has performed and won awards at various jazz festivals. His YouTube channel “ScottWDrums” was featured on a successful BFvsGF video with over 700,000 views.
With the addition of longtime friend of the band, bassist Jason Keller(21), Escape Sequence is ready to make their mark on the rock music scene.
