Escort, “Brooklyn’s finest disco orchestra,” was founded by producers Eugene Cho and Dan Balis, and is fronted by lead singer Adeline Michele. Initially known for a series of critically-acclaimed 12″ singles, Escort is now just as well known for its live performances featuring a 17-piece line-up. The New York Post and Time Out NYC both described Escort as the “city’s best live band,” Pitchfork described their single “All Through the Night” as “one of the best New York disco tracks since West End Records’ early 1980s heyday.”, and Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears proclaims “It’s the best disco music you’ve ever heard.” Also recognized for their remixes of artists including Tracey Thorn, Antena, and Feist, their highly anticipated debut album is set for release in 2011.
