Run River North

The Los Angeles-based, indie outfit Run River North release sophomore album Drinking From A Salt Pond led by lead single “Run Or Hide.” The album lands at #6 on the Billboard Heatseekers’ chart and #3 on the Alternative New Artist Albums’ chart.  Working with producer Lars Stalfors (Cold War Kids, Deap Vally, HEALTH, Matt and Kim), the band leaves behind its familiar folksy roots to craft an ambitious rock album.  The band performed the single for NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers, MTV’s Wonderland and lands Top 30 on the Alternative Radio chart.  The band’s self-titled debut album landed at #3 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. Produced Phil Ek (Built To Spill, The Shins, Father John Misty), NPR writes, “Run River North stays the course – and finds success,” and Esquire hails, “Because modern folk this richly layered has a high degree of difficulty. And [Run River North] nail the landing.” The band has also performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, VH-1 “Big Morning Buzz,” CMT “Concrete Country,” Last Call With Carson Daly, and Emmy-winning PBS series Artbound. All this follows features with The Wall Street Journal, NPR ‘Weekend Edition,’ NPR ‘All Things Considered’ NPR ‘Here & Now,’ Entertainment Weekly, American Songwriter, Daytrotter, American Way, KPCC 89.3 Southern CA Public Radio and TeamCoco, the official website of Conan.
