LISTEN TO PERFECT EYES HERE
“Soaring and beautiful Americana, reminiscent of Emmylou and First Aid Kit, accomplished beyond their years.”
“After all their time playing in Liverpool, it’s no surprise their sound is already honed and song-craft accomplished.”
“The perfect soundtrack to a road trip at sunset, leaving your troubles behind and your hopes out in front.”
‘Sometimes things just come together in the most organic and natural way, in a pub full of music and laughter. For trio Motel Sundown, it was on the Liverpool gigging circuit where all three members; singer-songwriters Naomi Campbell, Karen Turley and Rob Johnson met back in 2016.
Given that their voices were such a perfect fit, it made sense to write songs together too and so Motel Sundown formed in 2018. With no front person, and all three members holding equal footing in the band as songwriter and performer, they set to work, bringing each of their songs to the table and combining their musical talents and expertise.
Since 2018 they’ve released three singles together: ‘Chicago’, ‘Light of My Life’ and ‘Before Midnight’.
They have enjoyed support from the British Country Music Association, and radio stations Radio Wirral, BBC Merseyside, BBC Radio Ulster and Express FM. BBC Introducinghave remained a huge support since the band’s first single in 2019.
Now, they are releasing their gorgeous debut album ‘If You Were Listening’, a beautifully melodious melting pot of Country, Americana and Folk-Rock, made all the richer by their beguiling three-part harmonies. The album was produced by Mercury Prize nominee ‘Andy Ross’ and features Pedal Steel legend ‘Gerry Hogan’.
The band members are of course back to doing what they love best: playing four or five gigs a week both separately and as a band, including two weekly residencies in Liverpool. Putting out an album and extending their already burgeoning local fanbase will only take their dreams further.’ – Elisa Bray
