With BBC Introducing support and a sold out debut show under her belt, Runrummer is an artist on the rise and certainly one to look out for.

Originally from Birmingham, she takes her moniker from the famous Rum Runner Nightclub that helped launch local Brummie bands Duran Duran and Dexys Midnight Runners in the 70s and 80s. Now based in East London, Runrummer is the brainchild of Livi Morris; a 24-year-old singer, songwriter and producer with an interesting past. A veteran of the music industry by her teens, Livi spent time writing and collaborating with EDM heavyweights Showtek and The Chainsmokers before embarking on her own solo musical journey. Like many of the new crop of young British pop, Runrummer pulls influences from 80s electro bands alongside contemporary sounds from artists like Lorde and Flume, while her lyrics explore complex subjects from sexuality and gender identity to mental health.

Her debut EP was released independently in November 2018 to much critical acclaim: "Bold and uplifting" - Mystic Sons "Smooth and captivating electronic production" - Ceasar Live & Loud "Deceptively dark but appreciatively poignant" - The Daily Listening "One of the most stellar EPs of 2018" (Small Music Scene) "A freshly fascinating & relevant sonic realm" - FAME Magazine "Effortlessly laid-back melody and lyrics tinged with a swagger found on Lily Allen records" (Gigslutz)
