Biography

One of Chicago’s most exciting bands, On The Run, has steadily developed a loyal fan base that can best be described as rabid. Packing venues up and down the east coast and of course in their hometown, the band seamlessly blends genres and touches audiences of all age groups and walks of life. A combination of skilled songwriting and a stage show that you will not soon forget, has earned On the Run invitations to play at some of the nations most esteemed venues including Chicago’s “The Metro” and NYC’s “Webster Hall” among many others.

Their sound can best be described as a unique blend of soulful vocals, thoughtful, attention grabbing guitar riffs complimented with a tight, pocket oriented rhythm section - all accented by the group’s saxophonist. This volatile combination, combined with On the Run’s attention to detail and dynamics makes for danceable, yet all the while emotional music. On The Run has been recognized for unabashedly tackling difficult subjects and feel good music alike to reflect the whole range of human emotion.

Rock, Roots, Reggae, Blues; the band does them all a service without overplaying any one genre. They are in some respects a jam band, but know how to employ song structure and refuse to let lyrical content fall by the wayside. Ultimately, it seems that On the Run has taken the stylistics and musicality that have worked for many of the greats in the past; and have made it their own. The result is a sound that is new and refreshing, yet nostalgic at the same time.
