Motel Raphaël


Motel Raphaël is a young indie-folk-pop band from Montreal, led by Clara Legault, Emily Skahan and Maya Malkin. Since their inception in 2012, this seven piece outfit has risen through the ranks of Montreal’s burgeoning indie scene at an astronomical pace. Headlining performances at POP Montreal, CMW, Fringe Fest, M for Montreal alongside ranking in CBC Music’s national Searchlight competition have garnered them comparisons to Tegan and Sara, Feist, Fleet Foxes and Mumford & Sons as well as unabashedly glowing praise from the press community. Their harmonies are haunting, their lyrics honest, and the delivery of their performances are wrought with a heart-melting sincerity that will warm the coldest soul.

Motel Raphaël’s debut full-length Cable TV is a soaring tale of heartbreak, longing and redemption delivered with a songwriting maturity that far exceeds the fact that the band members are all still in their early twenties. With their eyes set firmly on the horizon, Motel Raphaël are poised to become the band to watch in 2014.
