ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Red Summer Spirit has many classic folk elements but it is not your average folk album. It blends Americana in a charming way and charmed we are." - Lady Bang Beat

"The Apology leads way into a very strong and powerful folk album... No frills, tight production and absolutely solid songwriting doesn’t take much to win me over upon first listen. The harmonies are natural from track to track, nothing ever sounding forced." - What's Protocol

"...an engaging sound that on the surface resembles any number of old-timey/Americana outfits employing banjos, harmonica, cello and a generally indie-folk vibe, but which occasionally nods to OK Computer-era Radiohead or Scotland’s Frightened Rabbit with its moody melodies and dramatic sonic arcs."
Michael Alan Goldberg - Philadelphia Weekly

"...the music features the kind of plucky banjos, harmonicas, and general front-porch indie-folk vibe you’ve likely grown comfortably familiar with by now."
Matthew Borlik - The Key - WXPN

BIOGRAPHY:
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 2011, Black Horse Motel endured the turbulence of an impactful lineup change, managing to recreate sound and set-list. 2012 proved to be a defining year for the band as it explored uncharted territory, performing shows in Delaware, Connecticut and New York.
