Run River North

Biography

Based in California's San Fernando Valley, Run River North is a six-member indie pop ensemble that originally formed in 2011 under the name Monsters Calling Home. Boasting a lush, folk-influenced sound built around singers Alex Hwang (vocals/guitar) and Sally Kang (vocals/keys), the band also features guitarist/violinist Daniel Chae, bassist Joseph Chun, drummer John Chong, and violinist Jennifer Rim. After filming a unique video for their song "Fight to Keep" in the back seats of their small Honda cars, they caught the attention of the marketing department at Honda, which used the song in a commercial. This led to them making a surprise appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, further expanding their audience. Following a sold-out show at Hollywood's famed Troubadour venue, the band signed with Nettwerk Music Group and officially changed its name to Run River North. Working with producer Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, the Shins, Band of Horses), they recorded their self-titled debut album, which was released in February 2014.
