Run Boy Run‛s first album has been out for exactly a week, and we could not be more thrilled. Twelve tracks of original and traditional songs plus one cover have been the focus of the group‛s attention over the past several months.
We are eternally grateful to those who helped make this project reality. Jim Brady from Jim Brady Recording Studios is just one name of many that is well worth mentioning. Huge thank you also to Amy Martell, Aubreigh Brunschwig, and Alex Parisi for their artistic contributions to the album art work. And also to you, dear fan/friend, if you contributed to the kickstarter campaign or have otherwise supported Run Boy Run.
The band spent the past weekend performing a short tour across Arizona. Those who turned out blew us away with their enthusiasm and generosity. We were thankful to play with the Silver Thread Trio at Plush and the Crescent ballroom, and with Nowhere Man and Whisky Girl at Plush. I was personally excited to see so many friends at all our shows, most especially at Plush in Tucson which is where I went to college and of course is the birthplace of Run Boy Run. The Crescent Ballroom was an equally special show on Friday night as the room was much more crowded than anticipated, and some friends from the stellar band, The Cosmic Goat helped us tremendously by handling the merch table. If you have not heard their stuff, check it out!
To conclude the release tour, Flagstaff Friends of Traditional Music hosted Run Boy Run at the Museum of Northern Arizona for a sold out show! I so enjoyed getting to mingle and talk with all of you wonderful Flagstaff folk, and reliving the memories of that very first performance at Pickin in the Pines festival in 2009.
This coming month of April will be a busy one for us, beginning with a benefit show on the sixth for the American Cancer Society at Phoenix Ale brewery, April seventh at Club Congress in Tucson and Country Thunder on April 11th!! Details about our shows can be found at runboyrunband.com
We are looking forward to playing and writing songs in the next few weeks, and we hope to continue seeing your faces out there.
Take care, and enjoy the album :)
