Biography

Hailing from Bristol, Rhode Island, the band RUNE initiates a new musical genre. Taking their lead from legendary groups like U2, Dave Mathews Band, and REM; RUNE blends sound like the ancient symbols of their namesake to create the magic of a thoroughly modern style.

From original, soulful ballads to dance ready favorites, RUNE puts an electrifying spin on otherwise timeless, Celtic melodies and rock classics.

This quartet of talented, young musicians is fronted by the singing, songwriting talent of Colby James on lead guitar and is joined by Heather Church, a tour de force on the Viper, a Mark WoodTM electric violin. Louis Mateos provides expert bass and Andy Tarter masters both percussion and drums to complete the foursome.

RUNE recorded their debut CD with renowned engineer, Steve Rizzo at Stable Sound Studio in Middletown, Rhode Island, under the artistic direction of Gwen Jones, Producer; and Celia Black, Executive Producer; AlliKat Productions. The album, Hadrian's Wall released June 1, 2004 on AlliKat Records.

The band's sophmore project, "Bury the Worry" is a collection of new music plus a few favorites "Hadrian's Wall" jammed out and recorded live at the Area Venue in Newport, RI in March of 2005. "Bury the Worry" captures the synergy of the live Rune performance. "Bury the Worry" is scheduled to release, August 2005 on AlliKat Records.

Rune aggressively tours year round along the East Coast from Atlantic City, NJ to Burlington, Vt and has built a solid fan base in NE.
