About The Runaway Hamsters: Best known for their musical youth and huge hearts, The Runaway Hamsters create music that is original, engaging and heartfelt. A Little Country, which is the title song off their second EP, was produced by Grammy nominated Kent Wells (Dolly Parton). Their official music video was directed by three time Emmy award-winner Roman White (Taylor Swift’s You Belong With Me) and made its broadcast debut on Great American Country and has also been picked up at The Country Network, The Heartland affiliates, Blue Highways, Country Fix, among others.
This group started as simply forming a band, writing and recording a song for their good friend, a second grader, who had been diagnosed with brain cancer. “We made CDs which we sold to raise money that was donated to the hospital caring for our friend,” says the kids. “We raised over $1,200 and our story got picked up nationally and we began to get phone calls.”
Since then, they have performed from Nashville to LA, opened for Andy Grammer, performed on WSM-AM, played at the famous Bluebird Café, and was also invited and participated in the NFR National Finals Rodeo Cowboy Christmas event. They were again nominated for a Grammy in the children’s category for their new single “A Little Country” and they wrapped up a performance at the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles where they donated instruments and funds to the children at the hospital and became official Jr. Ambassadors. From Boise, Idaho, these kids have been featured on radio stations and in media outlets from coast to coast.
