Korean American independent band Run River North has risen to the number 3 spot of the Billboard Heatseekers Albums charts.  Run River North is a Los Angeles based band consisting of six second generation Korean Americans. 

"Monsters Calling Home," which launched their career, is about the immigrant experience and how they see their immigrant parents, thus resonating with various ethnic groups in the U.S. But the rhythms come from country and folk music.

Their latest album consists of 11 songs and is seeing growing popularity in the United States.  Unfortunately, they have not been able to schedule a concert in Korea due to their busy engagement in the U.S. "Our parents came from Korea, so of course we want to hold concerts in Korea. It would be a great honor," he added.
