Run River North Take a Southern Detour


With thoughtful songwriting and appealing melodies, Run River North is a bright spot on the Los Angeles music scene. Just before embarking on a spring tour with the Goo Goo Dolls, the six-piece collective came to Nashville to perform a few songs in the CMT loading dock.

While they clearly take pride in their families’ Korean heritage, their original music is rooted in contemporary American sounds. The arrangements can lean toward the pop side, yet the violins and acoustic guitars give it a folk feel. And with their tight harmonies and undeniable energy, it seems like they’d be a natural fit for the festival scene.

The band will return to headwaters with three California shows in June, followed by a run up the West Coast. Then they’ll chart a course through the U.S. and Canada in July and August.
