Black Horse Motel
Philadelphia-based Americana band Black Horse Motel conjures a sound that draws on traditional folk roots, along with many other influences, and ties it together with unifying vocal harmonies. Songs are built on the foundations of folk music, but are elevated by an infectious blend of the traditional banjo and mandolin, with guitars, strings, drums and voices. The resulting sound is dexterous, rich, accessible and toe-tapping.
Reminiscent of the Allman Brothers, The Band and Neil Young, the group includes six members, three of whom share the lead vocals, offering lots of variety from track to track on their debut album Wild Country. - Val Haller - New York Times
Song Dogs has gained national media attention for their debut full length album Wild Country, and notoriety for dynamic live performances. The New York Times released two live videos recored at Philadelphia-based Hotbox Studios as well as a new single, "Anyway," in November 2013. The six-piece crafts songs with warm harmonies, scorching guitars, and driving rhythms. WXPN said, "Part Neil Young, part Jackson Browne, Wild Country is a collection of songs blending rock, folk, and blues with a focus on storytelling."
Spirit & Dust
Spirit & Dust is an 8-piece band from Philadelphia filled with a deep sense of energy and enthusiasm. Spirit & Dust, in full band configuration (a standard rock formation plus trumpets, keys, and harmonies), work up to music and lyrics that are informed by the band’s evident love for emotional Americana and lead member Kristen Sylvester’s mystical and spiritual leanings.
