about

"For me, going to music school was a practical choice. Through my studies, I discovered a personal, relevant social relationship with music, as well as an artistic philosophy based in existentialist thought. I was studying jazz, but I wanted to use that history and the tools of the craft to make a statement based on my experiences. I was looking for - and I found - a community of peers who sought to do the same. We started our own bands, played our original compositions and explored our own concepts. Some music we made stayed close to tradition. Some was very far from it. But it was ours – it was our music. And so it goes, this is the journey.

I see a similar movement among young musicians finding their voices in Los Angeles today. Fell Runner grew from both the music program at CalArts and its four musician's individual and collective journeys as a band. Their music is unique. Jagged, but also soulful and melodic. A noted West African influence surfaces in many of the guitar constructions, but I also hear fragments of sound reminiscent of Ian Williams and co. via Pittsburgh through Don Caballero, Chicago thru Storm and Stress and finally Brooklyn thru Battles. There are moments of abstract harmonic complexity (Cobwebs) and beauty (Fall Back) that are unmatched, to my ears, by any bands around today."

-Jeff Parker (Tortoise, Brian Blade Fellowship, AACM, etc)
