Run River North Sells Out 3/3 Album Release Show At The Troubadour; “Live At Amoeba” Set For 3/6

American Songwriter Premieres "Growing Up" Acoustic Video, 
Shot At Hotel Cafe During Their Sold-Out Fall Residency 

LA-based sextet Run River North will celebrate the February 25th release of their self-titled debut album with a sold-out headline show at LA’s iconic Troubadour on Monday, March 3rd. The band will also play “Live At Amoeba” on Thursday, March 6 at 6:00pm. They'll head to Austin for SXSW the following week, before joining the Goo Goo Dolls on their acoustic spring tour.

Recorded with renowned record producer Phil Ek (Band Of Horses, Fleet Foxes, Built To Spill, The Shins), Run River North burgeons with richly layered harmonies, dynamic instrumentation and evocative storytelling. The album deals with themes of hope, struggle and identity – a result of all band members coming from families who moved to Southern California from Asia.

Run River North is Alex Hwang (lead vocals, guitars), Daniel Chae (vocals, strings), Jennifer Rim (strings), Joe Chun (bass, vocals), John Chong (drums, vocals) and Sally Kang (vocals, keyboards). The band was recently featured on Last Call With Carson Daly, NPR Weekend Edition, PBS Artbound 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, Run River North had already garnered a Jimmy Kimmel Live! performance, been shortlisted at Cannes Film Festival, performed at the Grammy Museum for its members and garnered over 1.5 million YouTube views.
