'Born into a space between the notes of Fleetwood Mac and the words of Sylvia Plath'.
Running Red Lights was established in 2006. Migrating from small towns all across Eastern Canada to the swelling city of Toronto, Kevin Howley, David Puzak, Jeff Carter and Scarlett Flynn assembled together as a pop oriented, female fronted group under the control and direction of well-established traditionalists with crumbling ideas. The band found themselves caught between 2 worlds, eventually weathering the collapse of the old guard and struggling to navigate and adapt to the new age of social media, DIY and the ever changing economics of the music industry.
Despite what at times felt like creative and career pandemonium, the band has numerous accolades to their credit including the 2009 independent release of their first self-titled EP in collaboration with Juno winning producer Gavin Brown (Billy Talent/Metric/Midway State). On New Years Eve 2010 as winners of the YouDiscover Concert Series RRL made their national television performance debut on ET Canada to a viewership of 2 million in the company of Canadian Icons Barenaked Ladies, Great Big Sea and Kardinal Official. In 2011 in collaboration with Orange Lounge Records RRL released their second EP 'Life Below the Red' and in June of the same year entered and won the Kensington Sound Annual Songwriting contest. Running Red Lights has performed in concert with Canadian rockers The Trews and Grammy winners The Counting Crows and have been featured in top clubs and Festivals in Canada including Canadian Music Festival, North by North East, Juno Festival and Sarnia Bay Fest. Running Red Lights debut album 'There's a Bluebird in My Heart' released January 2014 to a sweep of praise from music journalist and bloggers from all over the world. The album was added and featured on CBC and BBC Radio. The leading single 'Mulberry Love' was named #1 Song of 2014 via NY Blog Given and Taken in Ink and the popularity of the song allowed the band an appearance on the nationally televised Canada Am. As career artists they have toured all over Canada into America, across the sea to Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales.
In the spring of 2017 the band committed to the ’Chasing La Luna West Coast Canadian Tour’ and has most recently wrapped a month long residency at the iconic Cameron House in Toronto. In 2018 the band will release their sophomore album titled ‘I.M.U’ in collaboration with Juno Winning artist/producer Byram Joseph, producer Devon Henderson and producer/songwriter Robyn Dell Unto.
