Our Story

The Running Mates are a contemporary acoustic duo made up of Julie and Spencer Broschard. The pair met in 2008 while attending the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. Their strong musical chemistry soon became apparent and they began writing and performing together. While attending Berklee, they performed at various weddings and corporate events in and around New England for clients such as Dunkin' Donuts, The American Ireland Fund and Bank of America. After graduating with degrees in Songwriting, Julie moved to Florida for a one-year contract where she performed in The Voyage of the Little Mermaid show at Disney World. The pair then relocated to Los Angeles, where they began performing original music as The Running Mates. While in Los Angeles, the pair cultivated a large youtube following with their acoustic covers (with over twenty-five thousand subscribers and more than two million views), performed at iconic venues such as The House of Blues, The Viper Room, etc. and recorded several original studio albums and EP's. Most recently, the duo completed a four month contract on P&O's The Pacific Eden. Sailing around Australia, the pair enthusiastically performed three to four sets per day, seven days a week. The Running Mates show features a beautiful blend of harmonies and a wide repertoire of songs, ranging from jazz standards all the way to top 40 pop hits of today. The couple look forward to continuing to travel, while writing and playing music, and experiencing new cultures.
