Soulful. Sexy. Electrifying.
A timeless fusion of pop, R&B and rock, Cable Car’s music oozes passion and sex appeal. Defying genre lines and stereotypes, these lads prefer their music to be described as “new vintage” and “tragic sexy” - and rightly so. Most of their music describes the dark side of being in love. The band gracefully delivers a musical jambalaya of all of the most popular sounds of the last couple decades, all while adding a current mainstream twist and their own original style. With voices comparable to warm honey or a perfect morning brew, they continue to capture hearts across the country.
In 2012, the stars aligned and placed Nathan Mott (vocals), Jack Turner (guitar), and Ryan Murphy (drums) together in a Los Angeles apartment complex. After bonding for several nights over a few beers, it only took one rehearsal for the band to realize they were meant to collaborate. Ryan and Nathan moved to LA from Rhode Island, while Jack traveled across the pond from the UK, all to pursue their music careers. With a background in acting and modeling and a strong passion for music, each band member brings a different flavor to the group.
Coming from humble beginnings, Nathan is inspired to relay true heart and emotion through his voice. Growing up, the front man was intrigued by the limitless singing styles of Ben Harper and Jeff Buckley and incorporated that free style into his. Jack contributes his roots in jazz, R&B and blues to give that smooth, rhythmic vibe to their music. A self-proclaimed “nut” when it comes to music, Ryan is as at home behind his drum kit as he is programming beats and brings an electric flare to the group. The trio has been compared to mega music icons such as Justin Timberlake, Robin Thicke, The Script and Maroon 5.
After long nights in the studio, Cable Car is anxious and excited to reveal to the world the magic they’ve been recording. Influenced by a lot of the local talent and major artists, the band has been working diligently to promote their new EP Ride, produced by Mike Pappas. Ride is equipped with a diverse subject matter, all inspired by love and relationships.
With so much ambition and good music to offer, Cable Car’s music is an experience all on its own. Full of charisma, style and music smarts, Cable Car is sure to have people asking, “Why aren’t they super stars yet?”
