Andrew Neil Hayes – Saxophone & electronics
Matt Brown – Drum kit & percussion
Run Logan Run are a head on collision of pounding tribal drums and screaming guttural saxophone. Architects of intense contrast the duo’s diverse and precise instrumentation regularly flirts with fragility and raw power.
Formed through a shared passion for improvisation, spiritual jazz and heavier experimental music, they are Andrew Neil Hayes (saxophones / electronics) and Matt Brown (drum kit / percussion), and have been authoring their own narrative in the new wave of crossover jazz, whilst touring the UK extensively, sharing stages with the likes of Colin Stetson, Melt Yourself Down, Shabaka Hutchings, and The Bad Plus. In 2019 they received the Montreux Jazz Talent Award for their performance at the festival.
Their debut album was recorded live at Stoke Newington’s Total Refreshment Centre, which has been, and continues to be, a prominent platform for promoting, recording and releasing some of the best new talent from the British underground. It was produced by Danalogue & Betamax (The Comet Is Coming) instilling further idiosyncratic dynamics into Run Logan Run’s already distinctive sound.
