Black Horse Motel:

Since its inception in 2008, Philadelphia-based Americana band Black Horse Motel has managed to conjure up a sound that speaks clearly to its versatility. Drawing on traditional Eastern and Western folk roots, classical training, and an affinity for unifying harmonies, this kindred troupe finds their voice through earthy songs, stories that recount poignantly the details of their inspiration. The ...foundation, the pages upon which these stories find life, is laid by a mélange of instruments (cello, banjo, guitar, viola/violin, percussion, mandolin, melodica) that render this quintet’s sound dexterous, accessible and mercurial.

In 2011, Black Horse Motel began to see the fruits of their doggedness come to bear, highlighted by a second place finish in the Music-a-live! Philly band competition hosted by the Legendary Dobb’s. Performing at many of Philadelphia’s top venues (North Star Bar, Dobb’s, World Cafe Live, The Fire), BHM started to demand the attention of casual fan and industry professional alike.

Looking to build on the momentum of the past year, Black Horse Motel has endured the turbulence of an impactful lineup change, managing to recreate sound and set-list. 2012 promises to be a defining year for the band as it looks to explore uncharted territory, already performing shows in Delaware, Connecticut and New York earlier this year.

With an EP recorded in early April, BHM will get back into the studio at the end of the summer to record its long awaited debut full-length LP.
