Album Notes
Neon Motel is a thoughtful and diverse collection of songs for the losers and the genuine boozers; the maniacal opposers and the business-man closers. Baltimore singer and songwriter, Adam Trice, has found his stride on this album, taking the lead on crafting some of his most soulful and memorable songs to date. Trice is joined with well-versed musicians and friends Bruce Elliott (electric and electric slide guitar), Greg Humphreys (bass, mandolin, electric guitar), Ryan Bowen (drums), Anjili Babbar (backing vocals), Adam Trice (lead vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, tambourine, mandolin).

Adam Trice is an American writer, singer, and songwriter from Baltimore, MD. In 2007, he began performing in solo and duo ensembles under the name Red Sammy. Trice performs with a rotating cast of musicians ranging from a rock band to a four-piece string ensemble. His unique songwriting style blends rock, folk, country, and blues with thoughtful, and often, deeply emotional words that highlight a poetic sensibility.

Red Sammy has shared the stage with national and regional artists including: Mike Watt and the Missingmen, Deer Tick, Mark Kozelek of Red House Painters, Phosphorescent, Dirty River Boys, Reckless Kelly, Fly Golden Eagle. Past festival performances include: Light City Baltimore 2016, FloydFest 2015, Denver Underground Music Festival 2011, Toronto Underground Folk Festival 2011, Artscape 2011, 2013, 2015 (Baltimore, MD), Baltimore Folk Festival 2013 and 2014, Baltimore Book Festival 2012 and 2013, HonFest 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015 (Baltimore, MD), Run for Your Lives Zombie 5K and Festival, Buffalo Fringe Festival, and others.

The name, Red Sammy, is taken from a minor character, Red Sammy Butts, in American southern gothic writer, Flannery O’Connor’s short story, “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” (1955). Notable songwriters and writers of inspiration include: Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Alejandro Escovedo, Tom Waits, Tom Petty, Lucinda Williams, Frank Black/The Pixies, Raymond Carver, W.C.
