Motenko Vibe

By: Laurie Gallardo

Austin-based songwriter Micah Motenko fell in love with the Motown sound when he was a kid. That’s the kind of thing that shapes your mind as you grow, and it definitely shaped the way he’s in love with music today. Anybody who plays the keys like that has got to be in love with it.

In 2018, he formed his band Motenko, and created an outlet for all of his influences shine to through – ‘60s and ‘70s soul, ‘90s R&B, New Orleans boogie-woogie. Hear for yourself when Motenko is joined by Dana Marie on bass for a live stream duo set at 7 p.m. Central tomorrow night, Wednesday August 19, on Motenko’s Facebook and Instagram. And while you’re at it, check out the video for “Silhouette,” the track on today’s AMM.
