We are thrilled to announce the two newest members of The Motet: Lyle Divinsky on lead vocals and Drew Sayers on sax.
Lyle Divinsky, a native of Portland, Maine, brings his powerful presence and love and light to The Motet. The unsuspecting soul man was awarded the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame Abe Olman Scholarship (John Legend was the recipient in 2002), was hailed by Fuse TV’s as an “Artist to Watch” and reached #4 on the UK Soul Chart’s Top 40 earlier this year.
Powerhouse tenor saxophonist Drew Sayers, most recently of John Brown’s Body, brings his huge sound and rich tone to The Motet. Drew, who played and wrote horn arrangements on Beyonce’s last two albums, has performed on late night TV, and produced John Brown Body’s 2015 release “Kings and Queens in Dub,” also brings his writing and producing skills to the band.
We are so excited for what the future has in store and couldn’t be more psyched to have these two as part of The Motet Family! Onward and upward!
