Bunny Gun Bio

Bunny Gun grew out of a pre existing collaboration between Val Macias (vocals, keys) and Rick Brandt (guitar, cello, vocals) when they were introduced to Brian Hobart (keys, synth, xylophone, percussion, vocals) through a mutual friend.
Brandt and Macias performed under the moniker Vox Sonus, a project influenced by hard edged rock, propelled by crunchy guitars and soaring melodies. Vox Sonus toured the southwest, with appearances on Texas TV and radio stations, including San Antonio’s popular morning show “Good Day S.A” and on 90.1 KSYM.
Around 2007, Macias began developing her individual style of writing outside of Brandt’s contributions, creating songs on a second hand key board, found abandoned at a Los Angeles garage sale. She found that gentler sounds, lyrics exploring themes of lost love and nostalgia seemed to fit more naturally with the dynamic Brandt and she had developed. The duo found softer landing ground with Hobart’s Berkley educated jazz piano style, solidifying their new direction.
Since Bunny Gun officially formed in January of 2009, they have performed several live shows through out Los Angeles, including at The Rainbow Bar and Grill on the Sunset Strip, The Mint, and as a head lining band for several MTV Film Fundraisers. Recently, Bunny Gun garnered a residency at 7 Bar, a Los Angeles night club, enabling the financial support for the release of their self-titled debut album, due January 2010.
Sonically, the aspiration of the record is to convey elements of light heartedness, utilizing simple guitar picking, sub- currents of synth pads, occasional disco drums, with the intentional juxtaposition of tonally opposing lyrics. As Macias says “…When Rick and I collaborate, I draw my inspiration from parade imagery because of the celebratory nature…folks clapping and dancing and singing in unison… and then from relationships gone awry. We hope to somehow squish those contradictory ideas into our record cohesively, and still keep it in these fuzzy, modern, indie folk parameters…”
The band is currently booking a two week tour through the southwest, scheduled for April of 2010.
