Let's Get To Know Each Other

"Provo’s horn-infused pop group, Motion Coaster, has been busy lately.

 

Playing a relentless slew of shows over the summer, the group has done well in several competitions. Last June they made it to the finals in Velour’s 2016 Summer Battle of the Bands. In July, Motion Coaster won iHeartMedia’s Battle of the Bands. They beat out 34 entrants from all over the state of Utah, winning a trip to LA to meet with record labels, interviews and spins on 97.1 ZHT, and a free concert. The band also took home a $200 grand prize after competing at the Liberty Square Apartments Battle of the Bands last month.

 

That doesn’t mean they’ve been slacking on production, however. The band is larger than your typical drum and bass setup, but Dee Kei Waddell, Ben Walbrecht, Mckay Salisbury, Bao Ha, Kamen Myers, Mike Nishiguchi, and Jake Lewis have all managed to figured out how to schedule time to record music and shoot music videos. They’ve worked at places like Provo’s Noisebox Studios and Pale Horse Sound Studios in Pleasant Grove. The music video for 'Take the Seasons' came out June 2016 and was shot by Arctic Storm Media. Members of the band also made a cameo appearance in Mimi Knowles’ music video for 'Better.'"
