The Escapist Music is a Pop/Rock/Alternative Canadian artist from Montreal. He is a songwriter, singer, musician and producer. Arnaud Dagenais was born just by the end of the eighties, in 1989. The youth of the artist included all genres of music, from classical to rock. The artist wanted to create music and started to play guitar and sing in 2003. Getting more inspired and creative throughout the years, he shaped his sound to start following his dreams of reaching people with music. Fully dedicated to succeed, the way of his life led him to better understand the language of music, and the world around him. In 2010, the artist played his very first concert and continued to perform until today. Arnaud kept working on new songs and has performed shows in Montreal, Quebec City, Ottawa, Toronto and New York City, while constantly working on his art. The Escapist Music released two official singles and were both independently released. « Love Like Gravity » and « All I Need » were acclaimed by his music fans.
Arnaud is also socially involved in his Montreal community since 2007. He volunteered into youth organizations while also participating in festival organizations and has represented marginalized youth by working as a community worker and by joining the creation of seminars and events. The music work of the artist is also directly reflected into his social work. Throughout the community work career, the musician is helping young people connect with their creativity and is also producing and helping young artists into their own careers.
