Music Monday: Escalator Hill every Saturday in July at Casey’s Irish Pub

May 7th, 2012 — 3:39pm

The heart and lungs of Escalator Hill belong to singer-songwriter Antony Benedetti, whose subtle twang and frenzied strums make Escalator Hill an American anachronism. The band could be from anywhere, or any time; they would be at home playing beside Waylon Jennings or Willie Nelson, Neutral Milk Hotel or the Arcade Fire. This timeless sound springs from Benedetti’s soul-on-his-sleeve spirit that pushes Escalator Hill past the superficiality of faux folk nostalgia acts.

Escalator Hill, best described as Orchestral Country-tinged Roots Rock, has made appearances at music festivals like the Hollywood Fringe Festival, played in acclaimed establishments like Fillmore Poster Room in San Francisco and The Echo in Los Angeles, and has actively toured California, Arizona, and Nevada. They are ranked #8 out of 300 LA artists in the folk rock web buzz genre on the Deli Magazine and their debut album, ‘Poplar Avenue’ was listed on Radio Free Silverlake’s Top 10 albums of 2011. Completing a October month-long residency at the Social Aid and Pleasure Club in Santa Monica, CA, they were also featured artists on web series highlighting independent songwriters and bands. Escalator Hill has a partnership with Itunes, Spotify, and Band Camp-offering a multitude of ways to listen.

Every Saturday in July at Casey’s
