Biography

Chicago, United States

Gold Motel is the Chicago-based solo project of singer-songwriter Greta Salpeter (a.k.a. Greta Morgan), formerly of The Hush Sound. The band consists of Morgan (vocals, piano/organ/keyboards), Eric Hehr (guitar), Dan Duszynski (guitar, vocals), Matt Minx (bass), Adam Kaltenhauser (drums).

They performed for the first time in December of 2009 with a sold out headlining show in their hometown of Chicago at The Beat Kitchen, coinciding with the release of the “Gold Motel” EP.

In June of 2010, they released their critically acclaimed debut album “Summer House,” which had SPIN Magazine dubbing them a “hot new band,” and NYLON Magazine describing their music as “ begging to be blasted out of your car’s rolled-down windows.”

Gold Motel quickly followed up Summer House with the “Talking Fiction” 7” in November 2010, which continued to establish their distinct sun-drenched sound.

The decidedly West Coast outlook of Summer House and Talking Fiction took the band on both national and international tours through 2011, playing alongside acts such as fun., Kate Nash, Hellogoodbye, OK Go, Butch Walker, Cold War Kids, They Might Be Giants and more. 2011 also found them making debuts at festivals such as Lollapalooza and SXSW. While the band continued to tour and perform through the end of the year, their music was featured on various television shows and commercials. In addition, Gold Motel was featured on a variety of tastemaker radio stations such as KEXP and WXPN, and earned raves from the likes of Nylon, LA Times, SPIN, The New York Post, Alternative Press, Billboard, Refinery29, and Paste among others.
