Motel Sundown are an Americana band based in Liverpool made up of three songwriters, Karen Turley, Naomi Campbell and Robert Johnson. Formed in 2018, they combine the sounds they grew up with such as The Beatles, Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan, with three-part harmonies inspired by the likes of Fleetwood Mac and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.
In 2022, the band released their debut album If You Were Listening, produced by Mercury Prize nominee Andy Ross and featuring pedal steel legend Gerry Hogan. Since releasing the album, Motel Sundown have been playing shows across the UK both as a full band and acoustic trio. The band have played support slots for Americana artists such as The Hanging Stars, Ashley Campbell, The Chapin Sisters and, more recently, Grammy-nominated artist Courtney Marie Andrews.
Motel Sundown have also made various festival appearances including at the British Country Music Festival, Cosmic Cape, Sound City, and Black Deer Festival.
Motel Sundown performed during the Liverpool Philharmonic Open Day, and were one of the biggest hits of the day!
