If you ever feel like getting on the back of a horse with none of your belongings and riding alongside a mountain for miles and miles, away from everything you’ve ever known and towards the promise of a better future, but feel like you can’t because there are too many obligations and too little time, Rabbit Wilde’s latest EP, Southern Winters, is the album for you.

The entire album is just flawless and I want everyone to enjoy it."
-Ear To The Ground Music, Album Review by Kate Bee
Though all four members of Rabbit Wilde (formerly Br'er Rabbit) 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. 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 group revamps classic string band instrumentation with homespun percussion and the unique integration of six-string 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 for the past three years, they have quickly risen to local renown and now tour extensively throughout the U.S. The band's most recent release, an EP titled Southern Winters, was recorded at the famed Bear Creek Studio (Fleet Foxes, Vance Joy, The Lumineers) and is available on iTunes, Spotify and in their online store.
