Since 2003, Run With the Kittens have been entertaining audiences with their unique brand of genre hopping, cutting edge, high energy indie rock (think Rush, fronted by Frank Zappa, or Beck jamming with Sonic Youth).
They’ve toured across Canada and the Netherlands, playing biker festivals, art shows, private parties, mental institutions, political campaigns, a few Legions, dozens of festivals and hundreds of bars. From skate parks, the roof of a grocery store, to playing in a living room for a priest, the Kittens have seen it all.
Somehow managing to be both irreverent and heartfelt at the same time, “The Kittens” frontman/songwriter Nate Mills (Guitar, Microkorg, Floor Tom, Melodica), Nigel Hebblewhite (Bass VI, Microkorg, Kaosillator) and Jake Oelrichs (Drums, Percussion, Glockenspiel) live shows are known for their expert musicianship, refreshing lyrics, progressive song writing and captivating front man.
Along the way they’ve released 8 albums independently, produced by the award winning Terry Brown (Rush, Blue Rodeo), Adam King (Good Lovelies), and Dean Drouillard (Justin Rutledge) as well as more recent self produced albums like 2016’s ‘Casio Glue Bomb’ and their 8th studio album 2023’s ‘Blaze of Gordie’.
