Run 8 RiderLifestyle — Musician / band
Run 8 Rider is a band that will get your pulse up, playing an eclectic country sound with original material that harkens from Appalachia to Austin to the great American West.
Interested in what happens when Elvis and Bo Diddley meet George Michael? Then listen to the Run 8 Rider version of “Faith”!
You’ll hear a few other covers you’ll recognize, including the great party tune from The Black Eyed Peas, “I Gotta Feeling,” “Wonderwall” (Oasis) and Devo’s “Whip It” along with some fine original songs. You’ve got your requisite truck drivin’ country song, tear-jerker love song, and funky Southern Soul groove song. Since it’s an election year we checked off politics, trains, and cowboys/cowgirls in a single song. We’ve even got a song about squirrels. Squirrels! Can you imagine?!
All vocals and primary instrumentation by Run 8 Rider. Special guest instrumentation from some fine musician-alumna (cello and violin) from the New England Conservatory in Boston and a really nice Mellotron arrangement from another great New England-based musician, David McNally. How does a Mellotron enhance a Country- Pop song? Have a listen!
Tenderfoot is now available for download on iTunes, Amazon, Zune, Google Play, eMusic, Nokia, Simfy, Deezer, Muve Music, and streaming on Spotify and Rhapsody. The album will be hitting other media services soon.
