Prison Escapee – New Single Release

Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Prison Escapee released two new tracks “Locket” and “Au Revoir” that follow up his 2016 LP “Disappearing Mountaintop.” Check out the songs below:

The two electro-inspired piano ballads are themed around unrequited and lost love.  The songs continue the Prison Escapee trend of making lo-fi style recordings that could easily work as part of a film soundtrack. His songs have an intimate feeling probably from having both his debut and sophomore albums were written, recorded, produced, and mixed in his living room.

Erik David Hidde created the moniker Prison Escapee in 2015, and is putting all his effort into original melancholic music and electronic rock songs after running the independent Housewarming Records in New York. He was raised in Fort Hunter in upstate New York by a Christian family, which is represented in his music. He was brought up singing in his church and all-county chorus in grade school. His lyrics often includes reflecting back on his childhood and personal sentiments of loss, which is centered around his close friend’s prison cell suicide.
