TVD Recommends: Motel Mirrors record release show at the Young Avenue Deli, 8/24

Two of Memphis’s best and brightest have recently come together to create project coated in warm sounds and a familiar aesthetic.

Motel Mirrors is a duo consisting of major local notables John Paul Keith and Amy LaVere.  They’re set to release their debut self-titled 10″ on Saturday, August 24, with a show at Young Avenue Deli that any lover of retro sounds will be kicking themselves if they don’t attend.

The twosome’s sound was founded in inspiration from ’50s and ’60s duets like Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty. Their music carries both Keith’s natural ease in writing sentiments bathed in rock’ n ‘roll past and LaVere’s undeniable voice and grace. Now on the other side of a full length album and with sense of comfort playing live, they’re releasing their sound with several originals and some carefully chosen covers.

Before the duo came to fruition, Keith was successful in his own right, having produced two full-length efforts (both released on vinyl) to both local and national critical acclaim.

LaVere is in a similar boat, having released three albums of her own, with the most recent Stranger Me receiving major attention.

The event is 21+ and will be $8. Doors open at 7pm, and the show will feature an additional set by Mark Edgar Stuart.
