Biography

"The Silent Escape" is no stranger to change. Both the group itself and the members within have gone through constant changes since the bands inception. The adversities they have experienced have ranged from band name and lineup changes, to homelessness and personal tragedy. The very heart of the band, however, is in the friendship of its members, their beliefs, and their loyalty to the cause of pursuing the life they love. "The Silent Escape" is more than a band; its a mission. Their mission is this: to use their talents and passions for the creation of music to sustain them and ensure for them a chance to break away from the lives they hate. To avoid the serious and unwanted outcome of a life of mediocrity is paramount. To break loose from the confinement of poverty and a coldhearted music scene and leave it behind without a single word or care is their reality. To these five individuals, few goals are more worthy of pursuit than this. The Silent Escape is a group of lighthearted individuals who create music because they love it. Their energetic live show exemplifies their positive nature and unwillingness to submit to the self-absorption they witness in their peers. Underneath, however, lays a tangible urgency, and a seriousness of artistic expression. They will not say goodbye to the life they hate, rather they will quietly walk away from their prison, and make a silent escape into a brand new day.

In late 2002, guitarist/vocalist Jeremy Nichols enlisted the help of drummer Matt Hull to fill in for his punk band's recently booted drummer. At the time, Hull was drumming in a hardcore band, a progressive rock band, and a contemporary jazz group, so his introduction into the band changed its sound considerably. During late 2004, the group's lead guitarist left for college. Hull then enlisted the help of his old skating buddy Jeremy Bruder just days before the group was to record their latest demo. Bruder was fresh out of touring with a melodic hardcore band from the area. Bruder's guitar work further improved the group's ever-developing signature sound. In May of 2005, bass player Brian Sorenson left the group to settle down. The group called on close friend Mike Gardella to replace him. Now a different entity altogether, the group assumed the name, "The Silent Escape." Thus began the rigorous process of becoming a professional band. At the end of 2005, the band chose to part ways with their lead singer. Fully aware that the voice and persona of a front man is often the most irreplaceable part of a band, the group initiated a search for a suitable lead singer. No sooner than they had begun the search, singer Brandon Cawood of "Until This Day" drove down from north Georgia to try out. There was an instant connection between him and the other guys of the band. The group was highly impressed with his vocal ability and stage presence. With a complete lineup and a newly acquired focus and sense of determination, the group started playing as many shows as possible. With their do-it-yourself attitude, the group has achieved a huge local fan base and has caught the ears of music listeners all over the world.

The members of TSE strongly believe that nothing of worth is gained without hard work and dedication. They have completed a number of successful do-it-yourself tours, and are currently working to hit the road full-time.
