Picture this scenario, you are an artist, making your art and doing your thing, struggling a bit for attention. You are invited to a party by friend and fate comes knocking at your door, no you do not meet a soul mate or lover, you meet your future. For LA's The Rescues that is just how it happened. A collection of solo artists from the West Coast who in their own right were doing fine but knew deep down inside they could be doing better, after meeting at a party by a mutual friend they started jamming and the rest is history. Mixing folk, alt-country and southern rock, The Rescues were LA's best kept secret until now. Selling out venues across the West Coast, the band just embarked on their first tour and things have been going steady for the band. They are set to release their debut, Let Loose the Horses on Universal and will be appearing at this summer's Lilith Fair festival. I had the opportunity to speak with the whole band as they were on the road (no worries, they pulled over to talk and did not violate any calling while driving laws) and we chatted about the bands story, start and how things are working out. An interesting band with such a great disposition, The Rescues are not a band to sleep on and this interview will prove why.
