Jon Berry of Runner Runner

runnerrunner Jon Berry of Runner Runner

When Alternative Press tells us to watch a band, we usually listen, however, we may have dropped the ball on this one!   Crowned one of AP’s “Bands to Watch in 2009” it wasn’t until we heard their insanely catchy single “So Obvious” that Runner Runner first hit our radar.  While we tried to wash the song out of our heads for days they did the unthinkable and unleashed an even more addictive stop-action video for the song to create some buzz

Runner Runner (Ryan Ogren on vocals, Nick Bailey on guitar, Peter Munters on guitar, Jon Berry on bass and James Ulrich on drums) came together first as friends and then slowly morphed into the band they are today.  Hailing from bands like Rufio and Over it, the sound that Runner Runner has evolved into is a bit more pop rock than their past projects but they seem to have found their calling.  Writing songs in their backyard and putting together quirky videos is just the beginning of getting to know these guys.  Their self-titled debut release (produced by Dave Darling) comes out later this summer and the band is currently finishing up a tour with Amber Pacific and Cartel before they head out with Secondhand Serenade and The White Tie Affair.  We didn’t want to wait any longer to talk to these guys so we hit up bassist Jon Berry  for all the scoop.
