The Fifth Runway - Experimental Pop Spoken Word Live Act in London

The Fifth Runway Short Info

The Fifth Runway: spoken-word narratives and random observations to an accompaniment fused from 80's disco, folk-pop, 90's pop, and music hall.

Paul studied Fine Art (MA) at the Slade School of Art, exploring performance art, radio and sound, gravitating to more quirky pop sensibilities which has resulted in airplay on Tom Robinson's BBC6 Introducing Mixtape, Resonance FM and Bethan Elfyn's Amazing Radio Show (Weird record of the week). Chris studied Music Composition (MA) at City University. His work includes arrangements of Burmese folk-songs and a six word opera I'm Afraid I Can't Remember Anymore, performed by the Warehouse Ensemble for a Tête à Tête opera festival.

Last summer The Fifth Runway played at various venues in London, including support for The Nightingales at The Lexington, and their first live radio session on Dexter Bentley’s Hello GoodBye Show, Resonance FM.

Paul was born in Sunderland and Chris was born in Portsmouth. They are both based in London.
