about R.K.R

"We love music and we love making music." 

RUN KATIE RUN is a roots-rock band based in Atlanta that's a combination of Kate's addiction to Dolly Parton, The Chicks, and Grace Potter with a healthy smattering of Corey's Eric Clapton inspired guitar solos, Adam's Shakey Graves influenced picking, Stephen's love for Vulfpeck-esque bass lines, and Ian's energized, Avett-Brothers-like drumming.

In 2021, they released their first E.P., "RUNNING ON LOVE",- with reviews and previews running in Glide, American Songwriter, and Vents Magazines- they played all over the metro-Atlanta area- including venues like Matilda's and Pigs and Peaches Festival- they were the featured band at Dollywood's Harvest Festival and they're Christmas song, "Fa La La La'ing In Love", was the featured single on Rock by the Sea's annual compilation Christmas album. This year the group has been working on their first full-length album and playing as many festivals and concert series as possible including Atlanta Dogwood Festival, Wire & Wood Songwriters Festival, Dollywood's Harvest Festival, and many more. Although they're a new band, they are seasoned professionals with high aspirations and live shows that keep you excited, engaged, and entertained.

"After you've been a musician for a while, you learn that the most important part of making music is to do it with people you love, respect, and who have the same motivations as you.  I love this band because we're friends first and a band second. We love getting together, we love making music, and we all want to keep getting better; as people and musicians. I think our songs and shows capture the adoration we have for music and for each other."

"...the song finds the band tapping into the unbridled passion of just making music together. With its playful mixture of folk, pop and Americana, the song captures what this group of musicians does best...the song is catchy as hell..."

"With a unique blend of rock sensibilities and folky textures, the sound of Run Katie Run condenses into a singular force of energy and power. Showing this off on “Stolen Time,” the band hits a sweet spot, crafting something that’s reminiscent of the classic, alternative-rock choruses of the ‘90s and the exciting Americana rock scene that’s begun to blossom over the past few years."

"Listen to Run Katie Run for some thoughtful roots rock and electric guitar solos with warbling dynamo vocals and driving band energy"

"This quintet of best friends makes music that is easy to listen to — comfortable, warm, and inviting."
