Not the corporation type? Would you rather buy music from a small business that supports independent artists? Then, huzzah! You can grab Red Summer Spirit from Bandcamp. CDs and instant downloads available! http://blackhorsemotel.bandcamp.com/

Introduction
“Take singer-songwriter narrative scene-driven songs; insert a blending of male and female vocals resulting in smooth strengthening harmonies. Then, enrich the entire musical experience with clean sets of strings that hover above the threshold that lies between classical and rustic Americana.” – Michael Colavita, The Deli Magazine

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.

In early April 2012, BHM offered their first recording, in the form of a four-song self-titled EP. In the fall of 2013, on the heels of a successful Kickstarter campaign, and BHM teamed up with Ron DiSilvestro and Forge Recording in Oreland, PA to record its long awaited debut full-length LP, Red Summer Spirit. The record released on March 1, 2013 to a sold-out crowd at Kung Fu Necktie in Philadelphia and is now available through many major online outlets.

Enjoying the fruit of America’s neo-folk revival, Black Horse Motel has solidified itself as one of the East Coast’s most relevant folk bands. The group has performed at many of Philadelphia’s popular venues, including World Cafe Live, Kung Fu Necktie, Tin Angel, Milkboy (Philly and Ardmore), and Underground Arts. They have been featured as live performers on several radio programs, such as Gene Shay’s Folk Show on WXPN, Folkadelphia on XPN2, and Y-Not Radio. Songs from their recorded works have also been featured on Delaware’s WSTW Hometown Heroes show.

Undeterred by some recent lineup changes in the guitar and viola/violin spots, the group, now consisting of David Richardson, Megan Manning, Desiree Haney, Galen Fitzpatrick, and Ryann Lynch is looking to tour, record and expand their fanbase in 2014.
