Show Dog-Universal Music President, Mark Wright, announced today the signing of Virginia duo, Native Run, to an exclusive recording contract, making them the first duo for the Nashville-based label. Produced by CMA Nominated Producer and BMI Songwriter of the Year, Luke Laird, the duo is currently working on their debut album.  The duo has already been hailed by Paste Magazine as “The Best of What’s Next”.

“It is rare to find two people thinking as one musically and stylistically,” says Wright.  “When we heard and saw Native Run we knew they were that rare find. It’s a great feeling to sign a new artist who is ready for the big stage the day you sign them.”  

“The Show Dog-Universal Music  team’s enthusiasm and vision for our music sealed the deal for us,” adds Native Run’s Rachel Beauregard and Bryan Dawley. “They’re the kind of quality people you want around you and fighting for you. We’re beyond stoked!”

“Bryan and Rachel captured my attention the first time I saw them perform live,” remarks Producer/Songwriter Luke Laird.  “Their stage presence combined with their songwriting ability and musicianship are inspiring and I feel honored to work with them.”
