Accessible Blues Duo From Vienna With A Sparse Sound


Following 25 performances in 2011 and 2012 in Germany and Austria, acoustic duo Runway 27, Left's first album 'Weekend Warriors' was released on their label 'Weissfeder Records' in March 2012. The harbinger of their first album, radio-only release 'Flawed & Flattened', had already gathered radio airplay in the UK, the USA, Spain, The Netherlands, Australia, Germany, Austria and Macedonia. Eventually, April and May 2012 saw their first, brief guest appearances in the USA upon invitation by local artists in Memphis, TN, and New Orleans, LA.

Wrapping up the first few months since the release of 'Weekend Warriors', radio and media people grasped the opportunity of reviewing the album and overall performance of Runway 27, Left. Says Mike Lidskin of Twirl Radio in Sacramento, California: 'I love the sparse sound on this album - it kind of makes the songs more powerful.'

Austrian journalist Tina Graf of BVZ thinks that, 'When playing live, they really get the vibe going with the crowd and make them dance!'

Robert Ebhart of Viennese online magazine Jedlersdorfer Rundschau writes that "Runway 27, Left's two musicians 'Tone' and 'Whitefeather' are really nice guys, charismatic musicians who are truly accessible."

Runway 27, Left is a blues project having former Trans Am/Sun Luca/Run Riot bass player Erich 'White Feather' Brandl and My Other Brother lead vocalist Anthony 'Tone' Kammerhofer team up.
The musicians (Erich Brandl - guitars, bass, backing vocals and Anthony Kammerhofer - lead vocals, rhythm guitars) try to reconnect with the roots of pop and rock music, calling their style 'In-Blues Entertainment'. Quite a number of their performances in autumn 2012 will also see them team up with harmonica player Oskar 'Ossi' Antensteiner on stage.
