Gavin Gold (guitar and vocals) from Cape Town, South Africa met Jake Adams (bass and backing vocals) from Boston, USA at a Brooklyn music venue. Both musicians recently moved to New York City to broaden their horizons and to explore the vibrant music scene. They decided to meet up for a jam and things just fell into place. They performed their first gig less than a week later which went down like a storm. Hence “The Rebel Nerds” was born.

Josh Breslauer (Drums) from Brooklyn NYC then joined the band and with the  combination of strong vocals and harmonies, quirky tunes, and a rocking beat, the sky is the limit!!  

What industry professions are saying: 

Go Deeper with Bruce Rave -  Laguna Radio KXFM 104.7: "I wanted to let you know that I've got the song on my consideration playlists and it's holding up well with all these tunes that have big national campaigns behind them. I hope to spin it in the next week or so and will let you know! My show is dominated by tunes with national alt/indie campaigns by familiar artists and your song holds up very well among them! So often when I get music from friends I have to politely decline but this one has worked well for me. All the best to you guys".
