Band Performs Three Songs For CMT: 

Los Angeles-based sextet Run River North announce summer headlining tour, following this year’s SXSW and soldout headline dates in Los Angeles, New York, Boston and more.

The band was recently featured on VH-1 "Big Morning Buzz," CMT's "Country Concrete," in addition to the Wall Street Journal, Last Call With Carson Daly, NPR Here & Now, NPR Weekend Edition, PBS Artbound, Daytrotter, KCET "Studio A" music series and Lexus: Music Uncovered, a CBS pre-Grammy special exploring Los Angeles hot spots and up and coming bands. They also premiered their first official music video for lead single “Fight To Keep” on TeamCoco, the official website of Conan.

Prior to joining Nettwerk and with only a 6-song demo, the band had already garnered a Jimmy Kimmel Live! performance, won the Bronze Lion Award at Cannes Film Festival, and performed a sold out show at the Grammy Museum for its members.

Recorded with record producer Phil Ek (Band Of Horses, Fleet Foxes, Built To Spill, The Shins), Run River North deals with themes of hope, struggle and identity. Debuting on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart at #3, the overlap of Asian and American folk is subtle, reflecting the hyphenated existence of the band members.


“Run River North stays the course – and finds success” – NPR “Weekend Edition”

“Snappy rock and chamber folk frames their tales of their parents' dreams and struggles to find purchase in America." – Wall Street Journal

“Run River North is the next Arcade Fire” – American Way Magazine (American Airlines)

“With thoughtful songwriting and appealing melodies, Run River North is a bright spot...with their tight harmonies and undeniable energy.” - CMT

"this irrepressible effort come across as so exuberant, so effusive, so infused with freewheeling enthusiasm, that any attempt to typecast them inevitably comes up short. Veering from a quiet pluck to resounding refrains, the band catches fire each time out…" --
