Track Premiere: Mark Joseph “Vegas Motel”

Vegas Motel‘ is the title track of Mark Joseph’s third album, and is his most personal as the songs draw directly on his own experiences.  It’s also his lockdown album, having come together through 2020, but aims for a more timeless quality than some reactions to the pandemic.  Listen to this song and you’ll catch a traditional country vibe, but there’s also a strong soulful heart to the song.

Mark Joseph told Americana UK a little about the song: “Vegas Motel is a story about a heartbroken man, creating his own liquor fueled reality and delusion to quell his pain.  This song is done in the old school country style and tradition of heroes like Merle, Willie and Buck. I hope you enjoy it and thank you for the support!!”

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
