Motel Raphaël Live @ CJLO

Motel Raphaël is a young Indie-pop band from Montreal, led by Clara Legault, Emily Skahan and Maya Malkin. They have just debuted their very first studio album, Cable TV, which was entirely crowd funded by a very successful Indiegogo campaign. They love Montreal and are very proud to be part of its rich cultural tapestry.

Motel Raphael stopped by The Oven at CJLO Studios to perform live on Maiden Voyage. They treated us to the following acoustic track off of their new album, and then spoke candidly with Beansie on air.
