An energy matched only by audiences, Run With The Heard dictates a consistent party atmosphere which has them rapidly moving up the ranks of a promising Vancouver indie scene. In just a short time the members of The Heard have already played over a hundred shows and shared stages with the likes of: Tegan and Sara, Raekwon of the Wutang Clan, Souls of Mischief, Blackalicious, Josh Martinez, Diana Krall, Wide Mouth Mason, Devin the Dude, Corb Lund, Cunninlinguists, My!Gay!Husband!, and Sweatshop Union, and have shared the stage with Vancouver rap legend Moka Only, and Fake Shark Real Zombie, who’s lead singer Kevin Maher regularly joins the heard during their performance. Along with the extensive list of live appearances, Run With The Heard tends to be the subject of perpetual buzz. A target for photographers, bloggers and the news alike, the band and it’s members are often mentioned in local media. Most recently, The Heard was mentioned in the georgia straight for their performance at the Olio Festival. “…Seriously, watch for these guys, who basically went off like a pipe bomb. Take three revved-up MCs, add a dude playing what appeared to be a Guitar Hero toy axe, and round things out with a drummer who looked like a ’60s-boho version of Tom Waits, and you’ve got a freak show.

But the Heard also had the songs, with all of the Bourbon’s party people screaming along to every jam…” -Mike Usinger, The Georgia Straight. Additionally, the producer of the band, Zach Webb, was featured on ‘CBC News: The National’ for producing a remix on the latest release of Canadian recording artist, “K-OS”. Run With The Heard’s sound ranges all the way from club-ready supercharged dance anthems – synthesizer infused rock ballads, to soulful downtempo listening music, powerful and intelligent hip hop music, electro-acoustic folk and country, and just about anything you can think of. The dynamic contrast and perfect balance of so many genres, old and new, digital and organic, is a must-hear. This 7 piece circus displays an array of diversity when it comes to sound. The audience is shown live instruments, genre-less production and vocals being manipulated by this production with the ‘never-before-seen’ involvement of a Guitar Hero Nintendo wii Controller. The effect is a constantly moving electronic journey that is thoroughly entertaining to look at, hear, and experience. The unique sound and unforgettable performance always seems to inspire movement in any crowd, and “Run With The Heard” has the makings to become one of the most interesting live acts in North America, if not the world.
