"They're young, they're energetic, they're enthusiastic. They're idealistic and charismatic and have a flair for the dramatic. On stage, they are The Runaway Hamsters, a youthful rock 'n' roll 'n' country pop band, which is nothing if not captivating. They are siblings - Isabella, 13, and 11-year-old triplets, Abby, Gabby & Riley"
– Katherine Jones @ The Idaho statesman.
From the kids: "We truly got our start as TRH by helping a friend who had cancer. We recorded a simple song, had CDs made which we sold to raise money that was donated to the hospital caring for our friend. Our story got picked up nationally and we began to get calls from all over the country. We were interviewed on radio stations & Media from coast to coast and eventually producers approached us to make an album. We chose to work with Kent Wells Productions in Nashville (Dolly Parton's producer). Kent connected us with songwriters and has also written with us himself. He shares our vision, passion and love for music."
TRH produced their first official EP in 2015 and their second release, "A Little Country" was released June 1, 2016. TRH creates music that is original, engaging and heartfelt. Their lyrics can be touching with a dose of humor with the aim of leaving the listener happy. You will be smiling if you take the time to enjoy! TRH has been involved with music from a very early age starting with piano lessons, which began at 5 years old. They all love to write, and each plays a variety of instruments. They all like to help others. Their hastag is #wehelpfriends!
2015 was a very busy year for TRH. Major performances included opening for Andy Grammer at Baldapalooza in Boise, ID and performing in Nashville, TN at the world famous Bluebird Café. They helped raise over $114,000 in 2016 for the Children's Miracle Network Dance Marathon @ Boise State University. The Runaway Hamsters have made numerous other appearances in Idaho, Tennessee and California where they offer their support as ambassadors to other children at the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles. In August of 2015 they received news that they had been submitted for consideration for a Grammy and they dream of someday winning it. They would say that would be "Hamsterrific"
