Run Deer Run
Run Deer Run is the indie-pop duo of Laura Halvorsen & Adam Warner. Formed in early 2014 and releasing their debut album the following spring, 2016 marks their 3rd year as a band.
Rich with thoughtful texture and stirring rhythms, RDR’s music has always had duality at its core; blending the subtle and the complex, the calculated and the wild, the light and the dark. At times restrained, and at others emphatic, the rhythms and melodies weave together to form compelling songs featuring incredibly personal and honest lyrics. Their live performances are sincere, impassioned and captivating, and together the pair have an undeniable on-stage chemistry.
Here’s the thing about Alex, he knows how to play.
Make no mistake, he knows how to work too -no one teaches themselves to play the fiddle that well without work- but it’s what he does with the spoils of the effort that sets him apart: he plays. With every leap and holler the word conjures, he throws himself into his instruments and leaves nothing out. And in the spaces between that joyful riot Alex cuts in, clear and strong, with the words of his heart.
Alex grew up halfway in Montreal, the rest in Calgary, and has spent most of the musical years of his life playing with his band Rotary Park; touring everywhere from Cape Breton to Vancouver Island. His songs share the melodies of those places and tell of the lessons he’s learned there. With his first EP he continues to cast out into the world with a deep curiosity and, as always, a sense of play.
