Native Run makes a dash for Show Dog

Monday, September 23, 2013 – Virginia duo Native Run signed with Show Dog-Universal Music, making them the first duo for the Nashville-based label.

Produced by CMA Nominated Producer and BMI Songwriter of the Year, Luke Laird, the duo is currently working on their debut album.

"It is rare to find two people thinking as one musically and stylistically," said label head Mark Wright. "When we heard and saw Native Run, we knew they were that rare find. It's a great feeling to sign a new artist who is ready for the big stage the day you sign them."

"The Show Dog-Universal Music team's enthusiasm and vision for our music sealed the deal for us," said Native Run's Rachel Beauregard and Bryan Dawley in a statement. "They're the kind of quality people you want around you and fighting for you. We're beyond stoked."

"Bryan and Rachel captured my attention the first time I saw them perform live," said producer/songwriter Luke Laird. "Their stage presence combined with their songwriting ability and musicianship are inspiring and I feel honored to work with them."

And that was the beauty of day one of the festival in enabling attendees to sample a wide range of music and genres, albeit little of it folk as we once knew it.... »»»
Concert Review: Hensley, Ickes have a good thing going – Chances are strong that Dobro master extraordinaire Rob Ickes has used the line a time or two when he explained his instrument of choice as "a guitar played incorrectly." The line got the requisite laughter from the small crowd of about 25 in the intimate club. His sidekick, Trey Hensley, didn't offer any such comment.... »»»
