Stripping away outside influences and removing the trappings of traditional arrangements, the simple and haunting sound of Sundowner Motel was born. At its foundation, an acoustic guitar and two voices. Simplicity as a revelation. Two voices becoming one; a harmonic extension of an already existent metaphysical connection. Songs birthed from tone and riff that both wax poetic, and yet, remain a relatable blend of Americana, alt-country and folk music that ache with the grit and intimacy of life.
Throughout the course of their musical union, Sundowner Motel - consisting of singer, songwriter, guitarist Jon Gosa and vocalist, percussionist Anna King Gosa - have blurred the line between Americana, Alt-country and folk music. Their original sound has won over the hearts of music lovers from all walks of life.
Gosa, who began singing, playing guitar and writing songs at age 15 has shared the bill and played festivals with such acts as Drivin' 'N' Cryin', David Allen Coe, The Georgia Satellites, Bad Company, Jim Lauderdale, Marty Stuart, The Lost Trailers, Prozac, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Drive By Truckers, Firefall, The Kentucky Headhunters, Ian Dunlop, Burrito Deluxe, Daniel Ramano and Kevin Kenney.
King Gosa, whose natural propensity for harmony and rhythm began singing at an early age and picked up percussion after graduating high school, has performed with groups at festivals or shared the bill with such acts as The Law Band, Daniel Ramano, Firefall, the Lost Trailers, Marty Stuart, Ian Dunlop, Burrito Deluxe, Jim Lauderdale and The Kentucky Headhunters.
In 2014 the two created Sundowner Motel, a harmonic extension of an already existent metaphysical connection.
