Throughout history, unity starts on the dancefloor. From ancient tribal cultures to neon nightclubs, beats bring bodies together. Once grinding and grooving in unison, the movement generates friction, sparks, and light. That might just be the purest form of energy on the planet. The Motet harness such energy on their ninth full-length, Death or Devotion. In fact, the Denver septet—Dave Watts [drums], Joey Porter [keys], Garrett Sayers [bass], Ryan Jalbert [guitar], Lyle Divinsky [vocals], Drew Sayers [sax], and Parris Fleming [trumpet]—encode a message in their energetic mélange of boisterous badass funk, swaggering soul, and thought-provoking pop. In the process, they challenge convention and arrive with a dynamic, diverse, and definitive statement.

Death or Devotion earmarks an important point in the band’s own journey. Since emerging in 1998, the boys have cooked up eight full-length albums and entranced countless crowds. 2016’s Totem saw them welcome Lyle behind the mic and Drew on sax. Shortly after, they kicked off what has become an annual tradition by selling out the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater for the first time. “It was my six-month anniversary and first show for a hometown crowd,” recalls Lyle. “I’ve got 10,000 people looking at me like, ‘Who the hell is that?’,” he laughs.

Keller Williams released his first album in 1994, Freek, and has since given each of his albums a single syllable title: Buzz, Spun, Breath, Loop, Laugh, Home, Dance, Stage, Grass, Dream, Twelve, Live, Odd, Thief,  Kids, Bass, Pick, Funk, Vape, Sync and Raw. Those who have followed his career will know this.  Each title serves as a concise summation of the concept guiding each project. Grass, for example, is a bluegrass-recording cut with the husband-wife duo The Keels. Stage is a live album and Dream is the realization of Keller’s wish to collaborate with some of his musical heroes. Thief is a set of unexpected cover songs, Kids offers Keller’s first children’s record, Pick presents Keller’s collaboration with royal bluegrass family The Travelin’ McCoury’s, and Raw is a solo acoustic album. Each album showcases Keller’s comprehensive and diverse musical endeavors and functions to provide another piece of the jigsaw puzzle that is Keller Williams. Keller’s collaborative and solo albums reflect his pursuit to create music that sounds like nothing else. Unbeholden to conventionalism, he seamlessly crosses genre boundaries. The end-product is astounding and novel music that encompasses rock, jazz, funk, and bluegrass, and always keeps the audience on their feet.

Since he first appeared on the scene in the early ’90s, Williams has defined the term independent artist. And his recordings tell only half the story. Keller built his reputation initially on his engaging live performances, no two of which are ever alike. For most of his career he has performed solo. His stage shows are rooted around Keller singing his compositions and choice cover songs, while accompanying himself on acoustic guitar. With the use of today’s technology, Keller creates samples on the fly in front of the audience, a technique called live phrase sampling or looping, with nothing pre-recorded, the end result often leans toward a hybrid of alternative folk and groovy electronica. A genre Keller jokingly calls “acoustic dance music” or ADM.”
