Running Bind album release date March 23th, 2023  


Singer/Songwriter JJ McManus’ fifth White Owl Red album, Running Blind is ready for takeoff. It’s a fireball of Rock n Roll attitude, Indie irreverence, with Country twang covered in a truckload of Americana heart and soul. You have in your hands a rollercoaster of 14 songs that cover more ground than a road trip down route 66. 

Kick back, feel your roots and Enjoy the Music!
