Micky and the Motorcars with Keeton Coffman

//MICKY AND THE MOTORCARS//
Micky and the Motorcars, with their own band of Americana rock, bring an optimism and integrity a band only acquires when its been performing so long the only thing left to tell is the truth.
Eight years and five albums after MMC was founded in Challis, Idaho, the band still writes more than 90 percent of its music as it defines the lives of brothers Micky Braun (vocals, acoustic guitar) Gary Braun (vocals, guitars, mandolin, harmonica) childhood friend Mark McCoy (bass), Kris Farrow (guitars, saxophone) and Shane Vannerson (drums, percussion).
Micky and the Motorcars may be self-described as “a little rough around the edges,” but with its rocking sound, MMC shares real thoughts, is full of depth, and has a honest, raw emotion and energy bleeding through Micky’s heart straight out into the crowd. Anyone who has ever loved and lost or loved and drank or loved at all knows exactly where he’s coming from and what he’s talking about in a sincere, piercing way.
“From the moment Keeton Coffman took the stage, it was painfully obvious that this guy belongs in front of a crowd at all times” (Houston Press). Heartland Rock and Roll perhaps best describes Coffman’s wide ranging style on his first full length album, Killer Eyes. From the heel-stomping corner pub song “What We’re Reaching For” and the dancehall flavor of “Ellie” and “Killer Eyes” to the Gospel infused “The Mountain“, Keeton’s style of music evokes the small town Texas sound he grew up with, matched with the knuckle and grit of his true Rock and Roll soul.
