The Motet Dig Deep: New Album Release!

Packed with all new material and masterfully produced by drummer Dave Watts, The Motet’s highly anticipated studio release, Dig Deep, will be celebrated in true Motet fashion with three CD release parties in Colorado starting July 9th. Dig Deep is a tapestry of sound that pushes the expectations of any listener who is familiar with the band’s signature mix of afrobeat, electronica, funk, and jazz. Albino! joins The Motet for the three night party, which opens at the Boulder Theater on July 9th, moves south to Cervantes’s Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver on July 10th, and then wraps up at The Mishawaka Amphitheater in Bellvue, CO on July 11.

motetDig Deep presents The Motet revisited and refreshed, showcasing 12 great musicians who have contributed to the band over the years. Much of the material is geared toward the studio setting rather than their famed live shows, which is evident in Watts’ rich production of interweaving rhythms and melodies. But in addition, every song on the 11-track album expresses the talents of these great musicians and plays well to the roots of the band’s signature sound.

The album, in a sense, is a family reunion with Dave Watts on the drums, Joey Porter on keyboards, Scott Messersmith on percussion, Mike Tiernan on guitar, Garrett Sayers on bass, and the powerhouse horn section of Dominic Lalli (tenor), John Stewart (baritone), and Dan Sears (trumpet). Beth Quist and Jans Ingber put their touch on three tracks with some strong vocals and the recording is rounded out with Paul McDaniel on bass and Zivanni Masango on guitar.

The record will be available at the shows for the ridiculously low price of $1 and will be made available for download on the band’s MySpace page. Once again, all three shows will also include, direct from San Francisco, the fantastic afrobeat big-band Albino!. These two groups together will be a rare treat for Colorado music lovers.
