Twilight Hotel is the musical partnership of Brandy Zdan & Dave Quanbury. Together they possess an elusive chemistry and musical style that is dark, moody and rooted in some kind of nostalgic passion for scratchy records and vintage guitar tones. They combine a rock n roll sensibility, compelling songwriting, and haunting arrangements while standing comfortably outside your predictable genre box.
In late 2009 Zdan & Quanbury made the trek across the New Mexico/Arizona desert from their new home in Austin, TX to Los Angeles, CA to record their third album "When The Wolves Go Blind". They holed up in Kingsize soundlabs for 3 days and laid down the album live off the floor.
"When it came time to making the record, we could only imagine this batch of songs with Stephen Hodges (Tom Waits, Mavis Staples) behind the kit and John Whynot (Lucinda Williams, Blue Rodeo) at the board. John brought in bassist Jeff Turmes to round out the rhythm section as well as lend his talents on Saxophone and Banjo. Jeff and Stephan have been playing together for 15 plus years, it was a perfect choice." says Quanbury.
'When the Wolves Go Blind' further defines Twilight Hotel's sound. From the hypnotic ride of the title track to the cinematic landscape of 'The Darkness,' the album is infused with a sense of travel and reflection.
"Most of the songs on the album were co-written between the two of us while we were touring Highway Prayer" says Zdan. "The experiences we had out there on the road and the feeling we'd have coming home to Winnipeg in the winter informed the lonely lap-steel lament 'Frozen Town,' and the odyssey 'Mahogany Veneer.' In the past we'd written third person narratives about seedy characters and Americana but this time around we realized that we were becoming the subjects of our writing."
Hailing from the fertile music scene of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, Zdan & Quanbury have been combining their talents for 8 years and now make their home in Austin, Texas. In 2008, they released their sophomore album Highway Prayer, produced by Colin Linden. Highway Prayer has received critical praise both nationally & internationally including a debut at #2 on the Euro Americana Chart , a Western Canadian Music Award for Outstanding Roots Album Duo/Group, a 2009 JUNO nomination for "Roots & Traditional Album of the Year".
