Born and raised in Southern California, THE YOUNG ESCAPE's fresh shot of alternative pop/rock and reputation for incredible live shows have led them to the top of the Billboard charts and sold-out concerts. Comprised of Ryan, McKenna, Kyrsten, and Luke Johns, the band’s debut singles “good life” and “love me like you” are an alchemy of modern pop sheen and sophisticated edge, carried to otherworldly heights by McKenna’s vocal.
The band’s first two radio singles with Capitol Records “good life” and “love me like you” secured #1 spots on the Hot AC Billboard chart, while their single "so alive" made it to the top 5.
With only three singles released in a two and a half year period, THE YOUNG ESCAPE secured four national tours--in addition to over 50 one-off festivals/concerts. Their first two tours covered 46 cities with Crowder, who wanted them on his tour before the band was officially signed.
