Since 2018, Run The Story is devoted to music and art. Like the new album Solid Ground by The Dutch, inspired by the art of female artists like Charlotte Dumas, Rineke Dijkstra and Raquel van Haver. Or like the album Werkman, which comes together with a wonderful video by Iris Frankhuizen, permanently on show in the Groninger Museum. Or Enter Sanctuary, with a video celebrating the herons of the Albert Cuyp market in Amsterdam.
Gradually, we took this one step at a time further and release music by artists and bands we love. For instance, we have released The Record Man, a tribute by Bob Gaulke and friends to the late great Ron Kane, on our little roster. Or have a listen to Imaginary Western by Son of Han, a tribute to the late great Jack Bruce.
We know releasing records is not all roses: it takes hard planning and sacrifices and disappointments and struggle but also lots of beer and fun in the process.
Run The Story is never about artistic compromise. Because, being musicians ourselves, we run our own stories.
