Empire Escorts has been a powerhouse on the Jersey Shore forefront for over 3 years now. They formed in late 2009, playing shows and formulating a unique sound that maintained the integrity of meaningful, real rock music. Empire Escorts is a combination of hard-hitting grooves and captivating song writing/musicianship, accompanied by powerful vocals and aspirations to create the NEW. Through powerful high-energy live performances, the band built a large expanding fan base that now stretches through several neighboring states. Empire Escorts is composed of four members: Joe Mccaig, Tim Spaulding, Cameron Lockwood and Tucker Williams.

In just a short time, Empire Escorts has toured regionally and obtained spotlights in several magazines including: Performer Magazine, Aquarian Magazine, Rock on Request magazine and others. They’ve opened up for big acts like Seether, received airplay on New Jersey’s most prestigious rock station The Wrat and currently hold regular rotation on countless college radio stations. The band recorded their first self-titled EP in 2011 at Lakehouse Music with producer Jon Leidersdorff. Since then, they’ve released powerful new singles like “The Weather” and “Escape the Fire”, which capture the raw sense of confidence behind good song writing and musical knowledge in the face of a saturated market. The release of their new single “The Weather” was accompanied by a brilliantly polished music video directed by Dave Allen which depicts the inner workings of singer Joe Mccaig’s lyrical context while displaying popular New Jersey sites, some of which were washed away after the destructive wake of hurricane Sandy.

Empire Escorts have received recognition by Harrison Promotions and Management and Ogden Clothing and were recently scouted by the co-founder of Starland Ballroom and currently the owner of Concerts East, Tony Pallagrosi. The band was awarded several nominations in The Asbury Music Awards for four separate categories including: Best Hard Rock Band, Best Live Performance, Best Drummer and Best Guitarist. In order to keep up with their growing fan base, they have remained attentive to constant song writing and on-the-road performances.
