Mr. Motes

Taking his name from the main character of Flannery O’Connor’s Wise Blood, Mr. Motes creates musical landscapes that aim to challenge norms. Landscapes that are unquestionably Christ-haunted. He is Ohio-born, Nashville-raised, and currently resides in Los Angeles, California. His songs are about divorce, parenthood, corporate jobs, student debt, and just what-the-fuck this is all supposed to mean for someone who’s only 28 years old.

Mr. Motes is heavily influenced by Radiohead, Grizzly Bear, and Jeff Buckley. He weaves odd time signatures with Biblical and mythological imagery but does so with a certain amount of grace and sincerity that makes it all relatable. At the end of the day, if you’re dancing while also questioning your perceived reality, then Mr. Motes is happy.

You can see him play most Wednesday nights at Larry’s in Venice.
