Artist feature 2012:
  • Gram Rabbit (USA)
    • Gram Rabbit formed in 2004. They have been getting rave reviews, drawing in legions of fans including celebrities like Scarlet Johansson and John Cusack (who lauded the band on his iTunes Celebrity Playlist) as well as playing major festivals since their debut release Music To Start A Cult To that same year. The Los Angeles Times, Daily Variety, Time Out London, Dazed and Confused, The Independent (London) and many others quickly took to the band’s driving beats and spacey sound. The LA Weekly named them Best New Band in 2005. Additional albums include: Cultivation (2006), RadioAngel and the RobotBeat (2007), Rare Bits EP (2008) Miracles and Metaphors (2010) and Welcome to the Country (2012). To date Gram Rabbit’s records have produced more than 30 (from 20 different tracks) licenses in television series, national commercial campaigns, and film. NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, CW, FX, BRAVO, STARZ, and MTV have all used the bands music in hit shows such as CSI, Life, the Real World, Sons of Anarchy, Crash, and Ten Things I Hate About You, just to name a few. International brands Kyocera and Fruit of the Loom have used their music to promote their products in national television campaigns. Motion pictures such as Crazy, Stupid, Love starring Steve Carell and Emma Stone, War Inc. with John Cusack and Interview with Steve Buscemi, have included the cinematic sounds of Gram Rabbit in their films. Gram Rabbit founders Jesika von Rabbit and Todd Rutherford burst on to the Los Angeles music scene with their first album Music to Start a Cult To. Produced by Ethan Allen, who officially joined the band following the release of that record, the band’s current line-up includes new drummer Jason Gilbert. Armed with two new releases for 2012 and with tour plans in the works, Gram Rabbit’s stock will surely rise. A destiny once measured in ambition is now one measured in accomplishment.
