What Founding Members Are Saying!

Working with Carl has been a great experience and a huge help to me. In fact, I wish I had him there from the beginning, it would have saved me so much time, money and headache trying to figure all this stuff out.


I’d highly recommend becoming a member of the Escape Ark Membership, whether you’re just starting out or further along in your journey. Carl can help you at any step.


RnB Singer & Producer, Toronto - Canada

What Carl shared with me is knowledge. He’s not going to do it for you, rather he will show you how to do it yourself, and be there every step of the way to guide and support you. I’ve never met someone that works as hard as him, and it’s inspired me to work even harder.

If you want to get your music out to the world, build an audience, and create a business for life that supports your art, I highly recommend joining the Escape Ark Membership.

Phil Leavitt

Singer & Drummer from 7Horse, Los Angeles - USA

I think that Carl’s body, mind and spirit approach to art and music is directly applicable and doable from an artist’s perspective, especially in the new, innovative and pioneering times that we are living in. 


Once I joined the Mastermind, I felt a sense of relief and I am able to see the foundations of this coming together more and more, where there is a sense of integrity, like mindedness, community and service for others. 


I’m excited to see how everything unfolds over the next few years because I am committed to this just as I am committed to music and art and change.

Amie Penwell

Singer-Songwriter,  San Francisco - USA

If you are an artist looking to scale your band up to the next level, I definitely recommend checking out what Escape Ark has to offer. 


I was doing the whole touring musician thing for 10/11 years - major labels, independent labels, touring all around the world and what talking to Carl and the team really showed me was just how outdated, how broken and unfair this model really is towards the artist. 


It’s not all doom and gloom though, Escape Ark has these fantastic lessons to show you how simple things can really be, even going from entry level, all the way up to full touring. 


While I was stuck in the mud trying to do the whole traditional music industry model, Carl was out ahead blazing his own path and doing great things. 


You’ve got nothing to lose! 


It's fantastic to be on board now and really exciting to be a part of this huge change in the music industry. 


So what are you waiting for? Come in and let’s make some change happen.

Marcus Godda

Singer & multi-instrumentalist in Little Victories, London - UK

My experience of being a part of the Escape Ark Membership has been life-changing. 


It wasn’t just Carl’s story that captivated my attention, it was also his perspective on the music industry. He pointed out so many things that didn’t make sense and that we as musicians don’t even stop to question... 


...needless to say, Carl had shifted my view of the music industry in a dramatic way... I had taken the red pill and was never going back. I was willing to follow this guy and be a part of anything he was involved in, thus, when the opportunity became available to get involved with this Mastermind, I pounced on it. 


Since then, I’ve been able to follow Carl’s simple methods and put a plan into action that I know works. 


I know that it works because I’ve looked at the graphs and the data and I’ve seen how Crystal Cities’ listeners, followers and streams continue to produce high highs. 


But it isn’t just about the numbers. Carl Is literally ‘creating a brand new music industry, a whole new ecosystem for independent creators, where artists don’t just survive they thrive’. I mean, let the gravity of that claim just sink in for a bit...


When I first signed up to the Escape Ark Incubation and Acceleration Mastermind, there was a promise of receiving insane value due to being one of the founding members. Carl is a man of his word and has delivered on that promise. 


We are moving into a new world now where independent artists are thriving. Carl Hitchborn and Escape Ark are going to be at the forefront of this revolution and I know I want myself and my band to be there with him. 


The question is, how much do you want it too? Are you prepared to learn new things? Adapt to new technology and work harder than you’ve probably done in the past? If yes, then I really encourage you to join!

Bassist in Crystal Cities, Melbourne - Australia
