It is September 2nd 2012 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
This week's chosen song has found itself on repeat, a lot, since March of 2012 when the band responsible for the song dropped by Basement Entertainment.
In 2011 friends Kyle Thompson (vocals / bass), Josh Freitas (guitar / backing vocals) and Matt Calvin (drums) created the band The Runaway Success. Known as "a combination of alternative, straight up rock and dance", The Runaway Success Story have been growing their musical presence and fan base ever since.
From Mississauga, Ontario, this trio certainly brings their influences of "rock, pop, indie, dance and punk music" into their songs. And, the guys definitely make it work, creating hits with each song they produce. Plus, most of their songs are ones you just cannot get out of your head, no matter how hard you try. So, their song, titled Dancy Song, is getting this week's 'Song of the Week' spot because of that.
If you follow Basement Entertainment on Facebook, or Twitter, you will know that we have tweeted The Runaway Success Story quite often about their songs. It seems whenever I book the guys, or even listen to their EP at home, I literally cannot get Dancy Song out of my head, along with the rest of the songs.
The band's first EP, self-titled The Runaway Success Story, was released on February 25th 2012 on their Bandcamp page. And, less than a month later, these three played a Basement Entertainment event and I even interviewed them live at Basement Entertainment.
Kyle, Josh and Matt are certainly three of the nicest guys you will meet. Not only are they incredibly fun to be around, but they also make a mean chocolate chip cookie (just saying…). And, to make things even cooler, the guys helped me celebrate my 18th birthday by playing my birthday show back in May of 2012 in Kitchener, Ontario.
So, it is pretty clear these guys have the talent it takes in the industry. And, with their amazing personalities, and incredible cookies, this band will continue to grow for sure. So, their song, Dancy Song, gets this week's 'Song of the Week' title because of that.
The Runaway Success Story have their entire self-titled EP available on their Youtube Channel, including this week's 'Song of the Week', Dancy Song, which you can check out here:
See you next Sunday for the newest title of 'Song of the Week' to be announced. Before then, check out The Runaway Success Story's Bandcamp page and download a copy of their self-titled EP.
