Our Story

The Running Mates are a contemporary acoustic duo made up of Julie and Spencer Broschard. The pair met in 2008 while attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. The duo’s talents have opened doors to opportunities around the world including a cruise contract in Australia, a hotel residency in Bora Bora and many beautiful weddings, most recently in Reykjavik, Iceland. Wanting to reach a larger audience but not sure where to begin, the pair started a YouTube channel from their apartment. They covered many of their favorite songs including, “The Night We Met” by Lord Huron and “Dreams” by Fleetwood Mac and sent them off into the world hoping to reach some listeners. They now have over fifty-five thousand subscribers and more than three million views. 

Julie and Spencer tied the knot in September of 2017, and they celebrated their 2 year anniversary with a little help from their fans, with a lyric video for their original song, “Destiny.” The video can by found on their YouTube channel and all of their original music can be found here on their website or anywhere music is streamed.
