The Joyrunners

Boise, ID

The Joyrunners are an alternative rock band from Boise, ID. The band formed in late 2020, during the midst of a global pandemic, but despite the world being shut down, they were able to start laying the groundwork for their early material. Scooter Abraham serves as the bands chief songwriter and singer, as well as playing the lead guitar. Formerly from the band King and Queen of the Losers, Abraham brings a lot of the same energy to this group, while still driving to create something new. Another familiar face for King and Queen of the Losers fans is bassist Tate Anderst. Anderst is also a former member of King and Queen of the Losers, but with The Joyrunners he serves a much bigger role in the creative process. Since they are just a 3-piece band, many of the songs are driven by the bass, and Anderst leads the band with his punchy Hoffner tone. On the drums is Dawn Winkler. If you are part of the Boise music scene, you might recognize her as the former drummer from Corduroy Blue. Winkler is a multi-instrumentalist who plays the guitar, bass, and drums at a professional level. Winkler is very inspired by White Stripes drummer Meg White, and that influence shines through on The Joyrunners tracks.
