G&P is your "Best Band in New Hampshire" ~ New England Music Awards
G&P is currently featured in an award-winning web series called Staying in Boston. The song "Free Sailin'" has won Best Theme Song by the L.A. Web Fest.
Since banding together at the University of New Hampshire over a mutual love of jazz, soul and rock and roll, Gretchen & The Pickpockets have performed all over the United States. Named after a hometown road with a history for larceny, the group quickly gained attention with their uniquely polished blend of genres and energetic live shows. After becoming a global finalist in the Hard Rock Rising competition and garnering nominations for best song and favorite act at the Seacoast Spotlight Awards, the band released their eponymous debut album and toured across the country to promote it. With their album used as a soundtrack for the award winning web series Staying in Boston, G&P won best theme song at LA Webfest 2015. Recently nominated as the best band in NH at the New England Music Awards and showing no signs of slowing down, the group has earned a reputation as "one of the most promising young bands in existence today."
"I left the Middle East satiated. No more was I scrounging for a new band to tickle my eardrumssomething I perpetually find myself doing and usually without success. Nope, I had found all I needed that night in Gretchen & the Pickpockets. I had shown up with one suspecting hand on my wallet while the whole time I should have been safeguarding the key to my heart."
