THE RUNNER UP
THE RUNNER UP
The Runner-Up is a 5 piece Phoenix indie-pop-rock band. All members have extensive experience playing music collaboratively, and bring a distinct, stylistic element to the group's sound. As such, no two songs sound alike.

At a live show, you may hear a dreamy, harmony-laden West Coast indie track followed by a hard driving 70s blues rock tune, or a synth driven dance groove followed by a dark, heavy, experimental blend of early metal music and modern synth/guitar hooks. This diverse blend of material has developed organically and continues to expand in new, more sophisticated directions as three separate song writers learn from, iterate on, and push each others' ideas to develop a sound which is new and exciting to the whole band.

Even though each song has a different style, the group's overall style avoids sounding schizophrenic through consistently memorable melodies, tasteful 3-4 part vocal harmonies, rhythmic precision, strong grooves and memorable modern electronic elements.

DOUG PRESTON
I started playing music in El Paso's burgeoning music scene in the early 90s. For the past 16 years or so I've been playing around Phoenix, AZ as a member of a number bands (Jesse Nova, Raul & The Reptiles, The Low Men, Ruca, Mister Lucky). Starting in July of 2017 I'm venturing out on my own. I'll be putting out new music very soon and hope you'll take a moment to 'Like" this page. If you're into Instagram or Twitter, I'm there as well. You can always find out the latest information on my website, www.dougpreston.band. Thanks for the look.
