Running Red Lights

Running Red Lights was established in 2006. Migrating from small towns all across Eastern Canada to the swelling city of Toronto. Kevin, David, Jeff and Scarlett 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 two worlds, eventually weathering the collapse of the old guard and struggling to adapt to the new age of DIY and the ever changing music industry.

Despite what at times felt like creative and career pandemonium, RRL went on to release a number of EP’s between 2009 and 2012. The band continued to be apart of Canada’s growing live music scene and in 2010 rivalled some of Canada’s top indie bands to become the winners of the Youdiscover Live Music Concert Series. RRL's debut album 'There's a Bluebird in My Heart' released in 2014 to a sweep of praise from music journalist 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. Running Red Lights has toured all over Canada into America, across the sea to Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales.

Most recently the band won the 2018 Canadian Songwriting Contest in the pop category and is currently in the final top 5 in the Slight Music/Hidden Pony Records 'It's Your Shot' Contest (results pending).

On May 25th 2018 Running Red Lights will release the first single, Songs of Blue their sophomore album, I Am You.
