The Rescues are an American rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 2008. Their music can be classified as Indie Pop/Rock, and is notable for its use of four-part vocal harmonies (all four members are singers as well as multi-instrumentalists).[1]

History[edit]

"The Rescues" were formed in 2008 by singer/songwriters and multi instrumentalists Kyler England, Rob Giles, Adrianne Gonzalez and Gabriel Mann, who met while performing on the singer-songwriter circuit in L.A.. While all members had experienced individual success prior to forming the group,[2] the group has proved to be greater than the sum of its parts, sometimes described as an "Indie Supergroup".[3][2] The Rescues' music has been placed in multiple high-profile TV shows, such as One Tree Hill, Private Practice, Pretty Little Liars and Grey’s Anatomy (the latter featuring five Rescues songs, among them the song “Break Me Out".).[4] In addition to TV placements, many of their songs have won, and achieved honorable mentions in prestigious songwriting contests such as the USA Songwriting Competition, John Lennon Songwriting Contest and the International Songwriting Competition.[5]

Adrianne Gonzalez won Overall Grand Prize at the 1999 USA Songwriting Competition. Gabriel Mann won Overall Grand Prize in the 2002 USA Songwriting Competition. Kyler England won First Prize in the Country Category at the 2010 USA Songwriting Competition. The band released their first record - a four song, self-titled EP - in March 2010. In June of that year they released the LP "Let Loose The Horses", which has garnered notability and acclaim among various online blogs and music review websites,[1][2][6] and was featured on Best Buy's "Find Them First" list in July 2010.[7]
