If you like dancing, forest landscapes, adventures, Colorado, the PNW, harmonious vocals, love stories, early mornings, late nights, local produce, or strong coffee, you will love Rabbit Wilde...This is art and entertainment in a beautiful form. The entire album is just flawless and I want everyone to enjoy it.
-Ear To The Ground Music
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. Voted best band in their home city of Bellingham, WA for the past three years, they have quickly risen to local renown and now tour extensively throughout the U.S. 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.
This show will be the official album release for The Heartland for the Skagit Valley.
Opening the show will be The Battlefield from Los Angeles, http://www.thewarrenghardings.com/, and The Warren G. Hardings, http://www.thewarrenghardings.com/, from Seattle.
