Gretchen and the Pickpockets / Bio

Hailing from Durham, New Hampshire, Gretchen & the Pickpockets is an up-and-coming band whose unique blend of rock, jazz, and soul — coupled with an insatiable appetite for playing shows in New England and elsewhere — has gotten them a great deal of attention in a short amount of time.
In 2013, the band placed first in the New England round of the Hard Rock Cafe's worldwide battle of the bands, and was nominated for Best Song and Favorite New Act in the Spotlight Awards, held annually in Portsmouth, NH. They recently released their debut LP (self-titled), which they immediately promoted with a semi-national tour, playing well-received shows in Chicago, Milwaukee, Portsmouth, and New York.

G&P is currently featured in an award-winning web series called Staying in Boston. The song "Free Sailin'" has been nominated for Best Theme Song by the L.A. Web Fest.
