“Rabbit Wilde captures the wind, the streams and the mountain air in their songs. Their beautiful vocal harmonies take you down a well-beaten path in the wilderness accompanied by rhythm and melodies from the classic Americana folk instrument family…This quartet of incredible musicians have lassoed the Northwest spirit and infused it into their own brand of storytelling lyrics and deep and passionate hearts for the land they grew up in.”
Though all four members of Rabbit Wilde grew up running around wooded areas of the same small town in the farthest Northwest corner of Washington state, brothers Zach and Nathan didn’t meet Miranda, the third founding member, until they had all ended up in New York City. This kind of backyard folk seasoned by the edge, polish and fervor of big-city inclinations is at the root of their high-energy sound and stage presence. The group revamps classic string band instrumentation with homespun percussion and the unique integration of six-string ukulele and Jillian Walker on cello. With their widely varying influences, three distinct vocal styles and copious amounts of foot-stomping, they demonstrate a sound and presence that’s at once original and familiar, appealing to audiences of all generations and genres. On their forthcoming full length The Heartland, Rabbit Wilde deliver on the promise made by their stellar fall 2015 EP Southern Winters; mining the best of the American songbook, melding the choicest bits of indie rock, pop, blues, soul, and orchestral arrangement in with their trademark brand of front-porch-shaking folk. The Southern Winters EP was recorded at the famed Bear Creek Studio (Fleet Foxes, Vance Joy, The Lumineers) and is available on iTunes, Spotify and at www.rabbitwilde.com.
