Front man, Aaron Lopez in the summer of 2017, originated BID FOR ESCAPE. The 32 year old brushed off the rust from not playing music in over 8yrs and connected with friend and respected local AZ recording engineer George White (of Saddles & Wild Earth). Lopez wrote the EP "Nothing Left to Lose" and recorded it along side White's producing guidance and the help of Danny Lopez (of Table Top Joe & Cry Night) on Bass. "Nothing Left To Lose" is available on all online music stores such as iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music & Google Play and more...
Once Lopez re-plugged himself in the music scene again he reconnect musically with life long friend and old band mate, of Downcast Fable, Anthony Lee (of Wild Earth). This led to the more recent connection of the very talented guitar player Jacob Ramirez. Since late 2017, Lopez has been playing live shows as Bid For Escape with Lee, Ramirez & D. Lopez. With momentum of the EP still thriving, the band is looking to play more shows locally while currently writing more music and hoping to release the new music by the beginning of the year in 2019.
In the meantime, an acoustic single of "Nothing Left to Lose" is being released on all online music stores 10/8/18. The music for this acoustic single was recorded and composed all by Jacob Ramirez, Vocals by Aaron Lopez, and then Mastered by Anthony Lee. This recording is a glimpse of what to come as the AZ homegrown band utilizes all their talents to keep Bid For Escape music as DYI as possible.
