Energetic and synth-heavy Columbus, Ohio based band Kid Runner formed in 2012 and they haven’t slowed down since.
Drew Lizon, Fran Litterski, Kurt Keaner, Scott Griffin, and Bobby Heigel independently released their self-titled EP in January of 2013 and soon after, released the single “Move”, which landed them on an X-Games commercial that same year. Nothing about this alt-pop band is typical. Their collaborative writing process and live show filled with instrument changes and electronic gems has landed them gigs with The 1975, COIN, The Griswolds, and Vinyl Theatre, as well as earning them the “ESPN Band Of The Month” title in January of 2014.
Their follow up EP ‘Wake Up Now’ was released in November 2014 and it landed them spots on Bunbury Music Festival, Midpoint Music Festival, and CMJ 2015.
Think Foster The People meets Passion Pit, but Foster still has a thing for CHVRCHES and Phoenix…it’s complicated
