12 miles Out is presenting three Wexford-based bands on Saturday, November 28 at 8 p.m. at the town's Arts Centre.

'The Motives' are an alternative rock band from Wexford that formed in 2001, recording their debut EP, 'We are The Motives' in October of last year. The members are Geoff Morrison (vocals, guitar), Joe Bernie (drums, vocals), Allan Kinsella (guitar, vocals, harmonica, keyboards) and Dean Redmond (bass, drums) they have been compared to The Divine Comedy, Jonathan Richman and Talking Heads, difficult to define and get restless slotting into any one genre.

'The Darling Sins' are Wexford-based Leni Morrison and Joe Harpur. Their chance meeting at a gig in Dublin was the starting point for a bunch of raw, hugely promising, slow-motion blues tunes with plenty of crunch in the mix. Hotpress News Desk described Leni Morrison as 'a Wexford chanteuse blessed with an extraordinary blue-eyed soul voice, and knack for penning a killer sultry tune. Expect big things of her!.
