Houston favorites Runaway Sun effortlessly weld elements of blues, pop, country and rock into a cohesive, arresting sound. In five years the band has cut three studio releases and established a steady Gulf Coast touring schedule. Their first full-length album, The Bridge, was recorded in a blistering eight hours at Houston’s legendary SugarHill Studios. Its success led to opening slots for Heartless Bastards, UK blues-rock powerhouse Back Door Slam, and an appearance at the “Live at Best Buy” Union Square concert series in Manhattan. The band was nominated for “Best Blues Group” in the 2009 and 2010 Houston Press Music Awards; and in 2011, lead singer and songwriter Andrew Karnavas opened for Trombone Shorty and MyNameIsJohnMichael at the PBS and Friends SXSW showcase. With 2013 appearances in Memphis and Chicago, Runaway Sun continues to shine on new territory.
