ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
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.

The quartet 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 electric violin. Neil Coleman 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 Records. The album is scheduled to be released in June 2004.

You can hear the Dave Mathews influence in Rune frontman Colby James’ funky-staccato vocal delivery (check “Slow Down”); and Heather Church’s flaming fiddle is a Red Bull rush to the ears. Rune is a creative amalgamation of roots music, Celtic folk, and alt jam-rock.

awsome sound that is blended together perfectly
This CD has been in my car for 3 weeks and I can,t take it out.It has it all from rock to ballads.The violin adds so much dimension to the band.It's a new sound that breaks away from all the rest.With some air play,this would surely be a hit

Musically rich and deep; modern style with ten times the talent
This CD is oozing with talent and rich music. Letting Heather's electric violin take the lead on an otherwise modern style recording is genious. The talent used is superlative all around - I've barely begun even listening to the words yet because I still can't get enough of the sound.

Very good!
Very interesting music, a great change from what dominates radio waves these days. Electric violin is absolutely amazing on all songs. A good mix of slower songs and more upbeat, carefree sounding ones. I especially liked "Regatta" (song that got me hooked) "Breeze" and "Late June Sunday."

MOTIF, Jim Vickers, Editor

Fledgling Fusion Band has Funk-Celtic Flare
Take, for instance, the disc's opeing track, "Regatta." James, a Providence-born singer-songwriter and self-taught ax-player, puts on his bee-bop hat and sings "so get brave on me now." And Rune has every reason to get brave now. With an orginal repertoire including mellow groove tunes such as "Slow Down" the sky seems the limit, should they keep the pro-power brokers at Allikats steering the ship.

"Slow Down," though benefiting from a strong injection of Celtic fiddle, has an undercurrent of Jazz beckoning. If "Regatta" reminds of an Addison Groove Project song, the Boston-based sax-driven Funk band that periodically packs Lupo's as the Strand, then "Slow Down" has an early G. Love and Special Sauce flavor.

Playing a lot of Celtic fiddle helps Rune secure festival gigs, but the Funk-Fusion, style and willingness to mix it up, makes Rune a rising talent on the area music circuit.

This sound makes me happy.
The songs on Hadrian's Wall make me want to hear more of this band. I play the CD on the way to work and while I'm at work. It really starts my day off right. The words are deep, the sound is unique. The talent is obvious. What a great blend. I can't wait to hear the next CD out.

Great album guys, have to say my favorite tracks are laughing man, groove, & ferny hill, cant say there arent any songs i dont like; however a few of the songs sound rather repitive. Other than that wicked chill sound. I can definately hear the O.A.R influence from colby. And that drummer andy tarter is amazing. what up jesse from b-town
