Biography

Runner Runner is an American pop rock band founded in Huntington Beach, California in 2008. They were the first band signed to a joint venture between Capitol Records, Merovingian Music and C.E. Music, a subsidiary of David Letterman’s Worldwide Pants, Inc. Runner Runner was founded in Huntington Beach, California by its current members, Ryan Ogren, Peter Munters, Jon Berry, Nick Bailey, and James Ulrich. The five friends came together after their previous projects, Over It, Rufio and Don’t Look Down had dissolved. Their name originated from Ryan Ogren and Jon Berry’s love of poker. The term ‘runner runner’ is poker slang, used when a player makes a hand with both the turn and river cards.

They began touring with Secondhand Serenade, The White Tie Affair in June 2010. In August they began their first headlining tour, and would close out the year touring briefly with 2AM Club, and later, Forever The Sickest Kids. Their national television performance was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on July 20, 2010. They were also featured on the Late Show with David Letterman on September 27, 2010.

Runner Runner’s debut single, “So Obvious”, has received moderate radio airplay, and appeared as a bonus “What’s Next New Music Preview” on Now That’s What I Call Music! 34.
