ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
8 long years with a crowded narrative of misguidance, inflated industry promises and no meaningful body of work to stand upon, perhaps Toronto Indie Pop/Folk band Running Red Lights should have simply bent to the supposed will of the world and ceased to continue. However, in the twilight of 2012 RRL found the courage and the fight to try again. Widowed from any industry influence 'There's a Bluebird in My Heart' is the sound of a band surviving and winning. The multiplicity of the album demonstrates a practiced discipline of songwriting and seasoned musicality and yet every song shares a glaring
cohesiveness that proves the band has found a definable sound. Produced by Running Red Lights in collaboration with Josh Van Tassel (Royal Wood, Classified, Meghan Bonnell) and Mike Mckyes (Jennifer Kee, Clayton Healey, When Systems Collide) the album’s charm lies in the hard-won exuberance behind its creation.

The leading single 'Mulberry Love' has drawn comparisons as far-ranging as 'Americana' Fleetwood Mac, Jeff Buckley and Chrissy Hynde, while the proposed second single 'Under the Wire' parallels the roots rock sounds of 'The Band' and 'Alabama Shakes'. An overall presence of ethereal softness is showcased in the climatic, Grizzly Bear-esque 'By Your Side', while 'Love Letter Airplanes', 'In Parenthesis,' and 'A Damn Good Way to Go' demonstrate the band’s affection for big pop melody. On the contrary, the undressed and raw 'Parlour Cafe' is perhaps the most stirring gem on the album, candidly recorded in one take, live off the floor to the warmth of analog tape, the song is a powerful ballad illustrating the band’s propensity for the melancholy.

Apart from the harmonious pairing of the blues/folk influenced voice of Scarlett Flynn with the R&B/Jeff Buckley persuaded voice of Kevin Howley, perhaps the most definable element of the album’s sound is in the euphonious backbone of the guitar. RRL's guitarist David Puzak has a melodic quality to his playing that has the combined characteristics of The Edge, James Honeymoon Scott and John Mayer. His unique voice stands alone with the real potential to sway a new generation of guitar players. Lastly and moreover, bass player Jeff Carter and drummer Kevin Howley shape a groove-driven rhythmic foundation that combines the varied stylings of Southern Rock, Country, Pop and R&B.

The band is expected to debut the album via an online live stream Podcast on January 14, 2014 followed by a tour of
Southern Ontario & Quebec, ending with a CD launch party at Theatre Passe Muraille in Toronto on January 31st. For a complete band bio and further information on the release go to www.runningredlights.com.
