Native Run
Native Run formed in the music venue Jammin Java in their native Virginia one fateful afternoon at the suggestion of mutual friends. After playing for a few hours in a little practice room, magic started exploding everywhere, and they felt like they'd just found another planet! They immediately went to the booker for Jammin Java and said, "Please book our CD release show at your earliest convenience," to which he replied, "Do you have a CD?". They did not. They booked a show anyway. That was only two years ago, and the rest is history.

Though a young band, they're no rookies to the stage. Native Run can be seen at the Austin City Limits Music Festival, and Paste Magazine called Native Run "The Best of What's Next." Collectively, they bring to bear influences from Shakespeare to Springsteen, and from Patsy Cline to Keith Urban.

The originality and sheer energy of this genre-bending ensemble serves as a welcome wake up call for those who experience it. With roots in gypsy jazz, bluegrass, and hip-hop in an “exhilarating all-acoustic swirl” (Acoustic Guitar Magazine), Jon Stickley Trio combines Jon Stickley’s rapid-fire flatpicking guitar with the sultry and wild, yet refined, melodies of Lyndsay Pruett on violin set over the deep groove of Patrick Armitage on drums.

The New York Times’ Nate Chinen writes “… there’s hardy cohesion among the players — no less on the Gypsy standard ‘Valse de Wasso’ than on ‘Darth Radar’ a turbocharged original with a ska upbeat and a shredding melody. And when Mr. Stickley and friends turn to bluegrass, as on ‘The High Road,’ by Tim O’Brien, they sound both respectful and free.” Premier Guitar Magazine also took note of “Darth Radar,” with Jason Shadrick calling it, “a rapid-fire take that moves from a serious ska beat to burning surf-style runs that would make Dick Dale proud.”

Greensky Bluegrass’ Anders Beck says of Jon, “Sure, comparisons to previous musicians are a good way to explain a new artist to the masses, but to do so is to cheat Stickley of what he really is: a damn genius, a musical mastermind, and one of the most unique, creative, and inventive guitar players I've ever heard… Stickley's guitar playing shares as much in common with the flow of the greatest rappers of all time as it does with his flatpicking heroes...”
