Description

Ghosts of the Royal Motel on CD

Genres: Folk-Rock, Roots Rock, Alt-Country, Singer/Songwriter Ottawa, Canada-born singer/songwriter John Allaire became first know to North American audiences with his alt-rock band in the '80s and '90s, The Town Cryers. After spending two decades touring North America and performing alongside other international acts with The Town Cryers and other bands, John put out his first solo recording in 2003, 'Crime and Punishment'. In 2005, John teamed up with his backing band, the Campistas, and released 'Thank You Waitress!', an album that went to the top of many college and university radio stations across North America and garnered a particularly large audience in Europe. Summer 2007 saw the release of John's third solo album, 'Ghosts of the Royal Motel'. For the most part, John's songs are traditional folk stories with an alt-country flavour, sprinkled with wit and edgy instrumentation, often drawing comparisons as far-ranging as Neil Young to Joe Strummer. He has been the recipient of national songwriting awards, such as the CBC Telefest award for best independent video, PROCAN top independent song release, and album of the month by Canadian College and University Radio Association.
