Classic string band instrumentation with percussion, electronics, ukulele, and more!
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. Backyard folk seasoned by the edge, polish, and fervor of big-city inclinations is at the root of the band's high-energy sound and stage presence. The quartet revamps classic string band instrumentation with heavy percussion and the unique integration of electronic melodies, six-string ukulele, and cello from fourth member Jillian Walker. With their widely varying influences, four 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 2016 full length album "The Heartland," Rabbit Wilde delivers on the promise made by their stellar fall 2015 EP, "Southern Winters,: melding the choicest bits of indie rock, pop, blues, soul, and orchestral arrangement in with their trademark brand of front-porch-shaking Americana. The Timbre of Cedar opens.
