Check Out Chicago Band Golden Motel’s Video for “Safe in L.A.”

Indie Band Gold Motel have released the video for their single, “Safe in L.A.” The single is off their latest release, Summer House, released on Redeye Distribution this fall.

Singer-songwriter Greta Morgan wrote her first song at age three and never stopped.  After four years, three albums and a relentless touring schedule with The Hush Sound, Greta packed up her guitar, her piano, and her record collection and headed to Southern California.  She started writing what would later become the foundation for Gold Motel.

A year later Greta returned to her hometown and reached out to Dan Duszynski (guitarist / vocalist, This Is Me Smiling) and Gold Motel began their rock and roll adventure.  Dan produced the 10 songs that make up their debut album Summer House and the band line-up was rounded out by bassist Matt Minx (This Is Me Smiling), drummer Adam Kaltenhauser (This Is Me Smiling) and guitarist Eric Hehr (Yearbooks, Villians of Verona).

The ten songs written by these self-professed Motown lovers have already caught the ears (and eyes) of SPIN magazine, exclusively premiering the video for their single and love letter to LA, “Safe In LA”.
