Neil Garrard- A Tone EP(2009)



Vonnegutt is your girlfriend's favorite new band.

Here's an unlikely recipe: Take classic emcee skills and dope lyrics, add pop sensibility and rock energy. Stir. Sprinkle a dash of inspiration from a literary icon. What do you get?

Formed in early '07, the band has quickly built a tremendous buzz, placing in the top ranks of several unsigned band lists, drawing an ever-growing fan base, and catching the eye of several record labels (including Big Boi of Outkast’s Purple Ribbon Records). In summer '08, their local popularity earned them a spot at the Vans Warped Tour in Atlanta.

Though the band's success may seem to have come quickly, Vonnegutt's two founding members had been paying their dues for years before crossing paths. Frontman/emcee Kyle Lucas was earning a name for himself in the underground hip-hop and mixtape scene. Guitarist/singer Neil Garrard was busy doing session work for some of the south's biggest names in Rap/R&B(Dungeon Family, Pastor Troy, and Kelly Rowland).

Looking to create something that fit his eclectic musical tastes, Lucas decided to form an alternative hip-hop band. Garrard soon responded to his flyer at a local music shop, and after meeting they recognized their shared vision and musical chemistry.

Within months, with the help of friend and producer Michael Woodruff, the duo had created their first record, a promising marriage of rock, hip-hop, funk, and electronica. The Vice Nine EP lit up the internet with thousands of plays on Myspace and a big response from college radio with their single “Bright Eyes”. Their style has been described as "refreshing" and “a unique blend of hip-hop & rock.” They went on to play many shows in and around the Atlanta area earning a sizeable following.

On the heels of the spark that was the Vice Nine EP, the band has solidified its lineup with the addition of Taylor White on drums and Patrick Postlewait on bass.

At the end of '08, Big Boi officially signed Vonnegutt to Purple Ribbon Records.

Currently, the band is finishing up work on their debut release with producers Simon Illa and Billy Hume. The planned first single, "Here We Go Again", will feature Big Boi of Outkast. Now tour ready, the guys are also playing local/regional shows while making plans for touring the U.S.
