The prolific and versatile Jesika von Rabbit, former frontwoman and main songwriter of Joshua Tree trailblazers Gram Rabbit has released two solo albums along with a number of singles and videos since the group’s hiatus. Her music is a unique mix of electro, new-wave, pop, rock, and funk. Her live shows deliver a spectrum of swirling melodies, a dose of psychedelia, along with plenty of Wonka-esque eye candy.

Von Rabbit has toured with the Eagles of Death Metal, and has performed at the Desert Daze, Camper van Beethoven’s Campout Festival, Joshua Tree Music Festival, Stoned and Dusted festival, Tiki Oasis, as well as San Francisco, Portland, and Palm Springs Pride. She has shared stages with acts as diverse as Wanda Jackson, Cat Power, and The Crystal Method. Dubbed “The Queen of the Hi-Desert,” Jesika is the torchbearer of the ever-vibrant Hi-Desert music scene.

Jesika von Rabbit’s original compositions have been licensed to CSI, Life, The Real World, Sons of Anarchy, Crash, Hit & Miss, Crazy Stupid, Love and War Inc., Grace and Frankie, and a commercial spot for Fruit of the Loom which aired during the 2012 Summer Olympics.

Jesika Von Rabbit is one of Los Angeles’ great musical one-offs. She’s simultaneously pop and art, accessible and avant-garde. She’s a mass of contradictions in the most glorious way and her influences, which touch on everything from ’80s MTV pop to ’70s tie-dye psychedelia, betray that very thing. In the live environment, she excels. She’s part Berlin chanteuse, with dabs of Nico, and part performance artist. She’s also a force of nature, and a local gem. – Brett Callwood – The L.A. Weekly

She is drop-dead gorgeous and has an absolutely incredible voice. But von Rabbit is more than a pretty chick singer. She is an innovative creator and expressionist as well as one hell of an entertainer… Her show is brilliantly nonsensical; a sonic and visual spectacle that is unlike any other and you cannot take your eyes away. She is an artist that you just have to keep coming back to see because you evolve every time you do. – Coachella Valley Weekly

Danceable, commercial, and first-to last-catchy, this album’s assortment of deliciously sweet and pretty poisons indicates von Rabbit rapidly Wonkafying, cybernizing, and de-rusticating. She may well have more reinventions in her than David Bowie. — Ron Garmon – L.A. Record
