Born and raised in ed Stuy, Brooklyn, identical twin brothers Amiri and Rahiem Taylor do not make the type of music that their borough of origin is usually associated with. Growing up in the mecca of hip hop culture, the Taylor brothers had more exposure in their house to pop, funk and soul music from the 60's, 70's and 80's. In high school they taught themselves how to play guitar and write songs based off of the Beatles. After high school they formed Blac Rabbit, bringing in former metal and church drummer Patrick Jones, followed by resident shredder Josh Lugo on bass (and sometimes guitar) to play their original psychedelic rock tunes. Tired of working boring grocery store jobs, Amiri and Rah started performing Beatles covers on the NYC subway, earning some pocket change, slowly building a reputation around the city while also performing their original material in New York's best venues for up and coming acts.
