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. Run River North is Alex Hwang (lead vocals, guitars), Daniel Chae (vocals, strings), Jennifer Rim (strings), Joe Chun (bass, vocals) and Sally Kang (vocals, keyboards).
Capital Arms started as a couple kids with some guitars, a garage, a lot of talent and a touch of wide-eyed ambition. Now a well-known band in Atlanta, Scott Patton (Musical Director of Sugarland/Jennifer Nettles) describes the band as "a diverse collection of six musical perspectives that come together to make one incredibly tight sound. Capital Arms, a true band."
Capital Arms has supported such acts as Somekindawonderful, Tides of Man, played at the Hopscotch music festival in North Carolina along with touring the East Coast with Slowriter (ex-member of The Chariot) and Bear Girl. They have a robust following of listeners in their hometown of Atlanta and are currently bringing their loud and energetic live show to every corner of the Southeast.
The band currently works with Grammy-nominated producer and engineer Bruce Bennett, who has worked with Cool Breeze, Scott Weiland, Kool Moe Dee, The Aquarium Rescue Unit, Jimmy Herring, Francine Reed, Sonny Emory and Vance Taylor from Earth Wind and Fire, and Chuck Leavell.
Their new EP "Firestarter" is available on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play and their website. Bennett describes the record as, "Explosive, smart and exactly what people want."
