Rachel James & the Kings win Ford's Gimme the Gig honors and record track with Don Was

Looks like props are due Rachel James & the Kings (due at this weekend's Westword Music Showcase), who have been named as the winner of Ford's second annual Gimme the Gig competition. The outfit, which recently added Tickle Me Pink vets Joey Barba and Stefan Runstrom to the fold, and whose profile has already been steadily on the rise in the past year, is set to gain even more momentum. The Gimme the Gig honors, which the band earned by besting 700 bands, come with some nice, well, gimmes, including a track produced by Grammy-award winning knob twister Don Was and a high-end video.
