Runaway Angel is back and bolder than ever. For nearly a decade, CCMA Discovery Artist Nominees Stacey Zegers, Ann Chaplin and Cadence Grace have been delivering hook-filled harmonies and high energy shows that have built them a loyal fan following.
After taking a break from performing in 2019 to support lead singer Grace while she battled leukemia, the girls are now reuniting to continue their musical journey with a new-found sense of meaning and connection.
“We have a completely new perspective on life and what is truly important,” says Grace. “Facing those hard times together and supporting each other through all the ups, downs and changes has made us better friends and bandmates.”
7-Time CMA Ontario Award nominees, Runaway Angel has toured both Canada and Europe, playing major stages like Boots and Hearts, Lucknow’s Music In The Fields, Trackside and The Havelock Jamboree, opening for chart topping acts like Dierks Bentley, Dallas Smith, Brett Kissel, Terri Clark, Emerson Drive and more.
Their Albums ‘No End In Sight’ and ‘Zero’ debuted at #5 and #3 on the iTunes Canadian Country Charts and spawned 6 radio singles including ‘Witness’ which surpassed 150,000 Streams on Spotify and hit top 50 at radio.
Collectively their music has been licensed over 20 times to networks like CMT, Disney, NBC, MTV, Nickelodeon and Lifetime in shows like Degrassi, Dawson’s Creek and The Hills. Most recently their song ‘Around the Bend’ was featured in the movie ‘Country Roads Christmas,’ and ‘If You Only Knew’ was featured in an episode of ‘Ride’.
With a freshly inked management deal with Rêve Music, Runaway Angel is excited for what the future has in store.
“So much changed for all of us in the last three years we weren’t sure if reuniting would ever be possible. We each held onto the hope that one day we could keep doing what we love and chase this dream again, together,” says Zegers. “We are thrilled that day is finally here and grateful to Rêve Music for giving us this second chapter.”
Their new single ‘Beach Please’ is a sassy, slamming, summertime bop with an undeniable energy that will make you want to roll the windows down.
Written with Kate Malone and Produced by Adam Newcomb, ‘Beach Please’ is about making the everyday grind feel like a Friday. Filled with sun drenched guitars, banging bass and a pop of Horns it’s going to be the song you crank up all summer long.
“We’ve always wanted to write a beach song so we went into our writing session with Kate and she had this great little tropical feeling melodic idea that fit with the lyrical concept we had of ‘Beach Please,’ which ends up having a bit of a double entendre lyrically. It’s just so much fun to sing and we love that our friends got to help us with the gang vocals.” says Chaplin.
Beach Please drops to Radio and Streaming Services May 26th, you can see the girls play it live this summer at Harmoniafest August 19th.
