County Line Runner announces headline show at Whelan's
Memories live on in songs. For County Line Runner, moments echo inside of notes, melodies, beats, keyboards, and guitar feedback. The sonic alter ego of singer songwriter Adam Day, County Line Runner bottles time inside of each song and imparts a piece of himself on every composition. Adam found himself at a crossroads when County Line Runner was born, as life took an unexpected—though wholly welcome— turn when his girlfriend became pregnant and he “decided it was time to get a proper job.” It didn’t quite pan out as the couple split soon after his son’s birth, so Day turned to songwriting.
His debut songs “Hard to Find” and “Wide Eyes” quietly caught fire. With over one million combined Spotify streams and endorsements from BBC Music, Clash Magazine, and more, he landed a deal with Alex Da Kid’s KIDinaKORNER in early 2019. Named after a bank robber from an eighties cop show who robbed banks across county lines, the moniker summarises his place at a handful of intersections—upbeat energy versus introverted vulnerability, folk sensibilities versus rock ambition, and nostalgia-for-days-gone-by versus hope-for-the-future. His upcoming single “Saw You In A Dream” illuminates the scope of his signature style. The track unfolds into a sweeping invitation, “You come to me, you come to me in the middle of the night.”
