What do these three words mean? As the music world will soon learn, a lot more than you might think.
They’re the name of a song — an urgent summons to a young girl, to run not from danger but toward adventure. They’re the name of a band — one of the few new bands in recent memory that can rock multiple genres, flaunt resonant harmonies, and showcase a dynamic lead vocalist whose passion and power demand attention.
But there’s another meaning. It’s the inner whisper heard or maybe felt by that vocalist, Kate Coleman, that beckoned toward a life where hard work promised independence, where the best way to express herself was by calling her own shots.
While Kate is quick to share credit with her bandmates, the fact is that Run Katie Run centers on her singing, writing, and presence. Its story, then, traces back to Buffalo, New York, her hometown. Her gifts first surfaced through dance. “It was my heart and soul,” she affirms. “I was sure I was going to be a dancer. Music was just a fun thing for me.”
Through playing music, Kate met her husband, Corey Coleman, and as their relationship blossomed, they started playing as a duo throughout the Buffalo area as Kate and Corey. It didn’t take long to realize that they had something special but that it needed to be transplanted to a market where they could earn the recognition they deserved.
So they made the move. More significantly, at an open mic one night in Georgia, they were so impressed by a trio called Highbeams. They became mutual admirers and close friends over the next several years, so it was no surprise that Kate recruited guitarist/banjo player Adam Pendlington, bassist Stephen Quinn, and drummer Ian Pendlington to play on her solo album, Past. Corey played guitar and recorded the album. Then, as offers started coming in to play at clubs and festivals, Kate made them an offer that, luckily, they couldn’t refuse.
“I asked, ‘Can you guys play with me?’” she says. It was the guys who said, ‘We’d love to do this, although it really should be your thing.’ And it was Adam who said, ‘It should be called Run Katie Run.’”
Which leads to another truth behind the name of this band. With these five talents combined, they’ve come a long way in a short time. But there’s still a long path ahead, with countless opportunities to create and entertain and fulfill their promise.
This race is just beginning. Run Katie Run!
