Br’er Rabbit

Though they all 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 of Br’er Rabbit, 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 the style they call folk-stomp Americana. The four-piece revamps classic string band instrumentation with homespun percussion and the unique integration of ukulele and 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 in 2013, they have quickly risen to local notoriety and recently recorded their first full-length album, The Wild North, at the famed Bear Creek Studio, to be released independently on March 14th, 2014.
