Meet the Band: Fierce Bad Rabbit

As we draw nearer to our SpokesBUZZ Fort Collins SXSW Showcase, we’ll be spotlighting our Class of 2011 bands, so you can get to know them a little better. Enjoy!

Fierce Bad Rabbit

Genre: Indie Pop/Rock

Named after the beloved Beatrix Potter children’s book, Fierce Bad Rabbit has combined the musical talents of four veteran Fort Collins musicians to create an indie rock quartet.  Brining fans and inspiration from their past bands, the quartet has made waves in the Fort Collins music scene.

Band Members
Chris Anderson-vocals, guitar, piano
Alana Rolfe-viola, vocals
Dayton Hicks-bass
Adam Pitner-drums, percussion

Background
When Fierce Bad Rabbit formed in 2009, regional media called them a “supergroup.” The standout talent of each member of the band was already well established in Northern Colorado.  The members of Fierce Bad Rabbit were magnetically drawn together to create indie pop music with a hook and a heart.  Fierce Bad Rabbit found regional success nearly immediately after coming together. Songwriting came natural, and the band soon released a self-titled EP that had airplay before it hit the streets. They were voted “Best Indie Rock” by peers in the Fort Collins Musicians Association, andWestword nominated the band for “Best Indie Pop.” They performed at the 2010 South by Southwest in Austin, received featured airplay on stations throughout the region, and were selected for the inaugural class of SpokesBUZZ.  The band just wrapped up a tour of the southwest and west coast following the release of their second album, Spools of Thread, in October 2010.
