Snow in the desert, passion in the air. Hello little kits, this is a little thing that I’d like to share:
FROM THE DESK OF THE WARREN QUEEN | Joshua Tree, CA
California based independent artist and musician Ms. Jesika von Rabbit today launched a secret/not-secret FUND A BUNNY crowd funding campaign to help bring her new album through to production.
In her social media message to followers, friends and fans Ms. von Rabbit reached out with a heartfelt message about the project. With donation rewards ranging from t-shirts and bow-ties to joining Jesika onstage during a live performance, fans will find a number of options available to them as they show support.
2016 marked the launch of a new journey for Ms. von Rabbit, a singer and talent called by influential DJ Jason Bentley as the “Madonna of the Desert” with the furthering of her solo and media projects. Her 2016 premier “Journey Mitchell” offered but a taste of the intergalactic groove phonic glam music epics that await her fans new and old. With this new year, getting into the studio early becomes paramount.
Working from her Joshua Tree based warren, this project comes as Jesika is not yet attached to a major label and as such carries the full costs of production and promotion of her music.
Called “California’s ultimate postmodern, intergalactic pop provocateur “ by the LA Weekly, Jesika von Rabbit formed the group Gram Rabbit with partner Todd Rutherford sparking a creative force unlike any other at the time.
Their debut album “Music to Start a Cult To” was released to rave reviews and the LA Weekly hailed them as LA’s Best New Artist. Momentum grew quickly landing Gram Rabbit a slot on the main stage of the Coachella Music and Art Festival while Gram Rabbit’s fan base grew steadily as they honed their live chops playing or touring with the likes of Le Tigre, Maximo Park, the Raveonettes, Satellite Party, Kinky, Ima Robot, West Indian Girl, Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros, The Handsome Family, The Lovemakers, Electrolane, The 88, John Doe, The English Beat, and many more.
The group produced six albums and and have licensed music to a number of film and television projects. NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, CW, FX, BRAVO, STARZ, and MTV have all used the band’s music in shows and movies such as CSI, Life, the Real World, Sons of Anarchy, Crash, Hit & Miss, Crazy Stupid Love and War Inc., just to name a few. Gram Rabbit also landed a commercial spot for Fruit of the Loom that aired during the 2012 Summer Olympics. Their unique hybrid of psychedelic rock and electro-pop redefined and modernized the old-school labels of retro and synth-pop.
As the front woman of Gram Rabbit, and as a solo artist, Jesika von Rabbit dominates. With a combination of her self-penned songs, her voice, her musical and programming talents, and compelling stage presence, von Rabbit literally owns the audience during her shows.
This new album is the sure to be a historical followup to her solo debut album, Journey Mitchell. Where Journey Mitchell, is loaded with new wave influenced synths, keyboard melodics and infectious dance beats, this new album promises to infuse depth and dimension with mystical melodies and mind expanding phonic rhythm. Jesika is sharing a secret with her fans.
