Runaway Horse is the moniker for Austin, Texas-based and New Mexico born singer-songwriter Mari Tirsa. Together with an eclectic assortment of seasoned Texas musicians, she creates a unique folk/Americana sound that draws the listener into the forlorn and majestic ambiance of the American frontier.
Mari’s poetic songwriting is reminiscent of Leonard Cohen and her ethereal vocals echo those of Allison Krauss. She balances her voice with a driving rhythm section; classic folk, fingerpicking, acoustic guitar; gentle male harmonies; and Alt-Country electric guitar. An additional layer of dream/shoegaze style pedals, synth, and vocal effects bathe you in the nature-inspired perfume that is Runaway Horse’s dream Americana world.
