Jesika Von Rabbit is the hotly anticipatEd Solo project of the LA Weekly’s band of the year Gram Rabbit’s lead singer. Jesika, a native of Green Bay, Wisconsin is stepping away from a ten year history with her wildly popular Joshua Tree, California based band, Gram Rabbit which was co-founded in 2003 with partner Todd Rutherford and later joined by esteemed producer Ethan Allen. Gram Rabbit garnered over 30 licenses for Film and Television projects as well a released six studio albums and a spawned a rabidly loyal fan base and international cult of followers known as the Royal Order of Rabbits.
Jesika von Rabbit is on a new musical voyage with her solo project and is charting her course with a flood of fresh melodies that is a rising storm of edgy electro-pop rythyms and fiercely emotional lyrics. (JVR) is a pansexual experiment in synth driven Blonde ambition. JVR’s crossover dance anthems will force you to question your sexuality and compel you to dance your ass off while thinking about it..
One of the new tracks on Jesika’s roster (a group of songs she’s referring to as Journey Mitchell) entitled “Gaydar” have the audience bobbing their heads to the lyric’s “are you a little girl or a little boy? I’m a little gay be my little toy.”
Song “Psychic Spice” is a cross between Bob Dylan’s “Subterranean Homesick Blues” and a little B’52’s.
She performs a ballad version of Cyndi Lauper’s “She Bop” which makes the crowd chuckle when they realize what the cover is…
With a Winter tour of live performances supporting her new material in the books and armed to the teeth with several infectious new songs, Jesika’s new material draws from themes of sexuality, strength and being able to poke fun at herself when the need arises. JVR’s live shows are filled with a crew of colorful characters,specifically a pair of nympth-like blonde dancing twins who call themselves,The Grundles.
“Being able to make people laugh is an important craft for me as an artist. When I am on stage I like to put on an entertaining show, not just play through my songs.”
JVR is currently working on a video for her song “Glamorous Misery”, which sounds like Madonna meets Daft Punk and a dark-electro version of Garth Brook’s “Friends in Low Places,” which should amuse her audience in a tongue-in-cheek way but make them shake their ass at the same time.. JVR is currently booking Southern California shows with plans to tour out further in the near future…
