Dan texted me late one night and said, ‘I think I may have written my first song that Gold Motel will want to use!’ and the next day, he played us “Musicians”. The lyrics “Most of my friends are musicians in a subway station” was especially interesting to me because there is one Chicago subway musician we’ve all heard, who sings in an El station in Chicago. This man has incredible soul and grit in his voice — he sounds like a modern Otis Redding. Despite the fact that he has experienced no success or support for his music [aside from a few generous pedestrians], he still sings. We have many friends who are incredibly talented, but who rarely step into the spotlight. This song is an ode to that idea — that whether or not there’s success, our friends and we will keep on singing and playing because that’s what we love to do.

Have a happy and safe Fourth of July to all of our American friends! All my love from our home, to yours! Now go enjoy some All American BBQ and get ready for those fireworks! Hopefully it won’t be rainy where you are like it is for me!
First off, I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving if you’re in the states…I know I’ve been a tad absent but as GM is on the quiet side right now it means not much to post!
Now I got a submission this morning and I deleted it but I wanna go over the submission rules again.
You are free to submit anything that is directly related to Gold Motel…..your concert photos, pictures of you with the band, anything..so long as it is not a PERSONAL photo of the band. I’m friends with all of the members, past and present, on facebook and I’ll know if you lifted something from their personal page and shared it here. I’m very big on keeping the privacy of the band to the band….The whole group has been so good to me and they are so good to their fans, so we really need to show that same love and respect to them. On that same line remember, if you ask any personal questions or anything that I may or may not know the answer to, I retain the right to NOT answer them. It falls under that whole respecting the band’s privacy thing, okay?
Anyways, I love you guys and Happy Holidays!! -Beccs <3
