Motel Radio is currently in the middle of a spring U.S. tour and plays next tonight at the High Dive in Gainesville, FL. The band’s tour dates continue through May 27th, and include performances at the Savannah Stopover, SXSW, Treefort Music, SouthSounds, and Jazz Fest festivals, among others. A current itinerary is below.
Formed in 2014, Motel Radio has approached songwriting with a reverence for past influences coupled with an enthusiasm for contemporary artists. As a result, the band has developed a sound that is rooted in Americana, yet constantly evolving. Texas natives Ian Wellman (guitar/vocals) and Winston Triolo (guitar/vocals) began their songwriting collaboration while attending college in Baton Rouge, LA, where they would meet fellow musicians Eric Lloyd (drums) and Andrew Pancamo (bass). The band cut its teeth in the college bar circuit, all the while continuing to be heavily influenced by independent songwriters in the area.
In 2015, Motel Radio moved to New Orleans and immersed itself in the vibrant music scene. Motel Radio recorded its debut EP, Days and Nights, at Listen Up! Studios with local musician and producer, Mike Seaman. David Hart (keys), local musician and engineer at Bear America Records, joined the group shortly thereafter. The band is currently working on their debut album; more news on the forthcoming LP will be announced soon.
