Best LA Band in National Battle of the Bands Contest
...all within a year of their first album release
Migrant Motel, the rock & roll power duo composed of David Stewart Jr, the US-raised/Peruvian-born frontman (vocals, bass, guitar) and Chava from Mexico (drums, live loops), rocked Boston for five years before moving to LA in the summer of 2017. The international collective has achieved an enormously unique sound, a middle child between Royal Blood’s raw and powerful set and 21 Pilot’s smoke & mirrors, both in the studio and in a live setting. Their first ever album, in collaboration with Norwegian producer Peder Etholm Idsoee, “Volume One” has been hailed as "a cross between Lenny Kravitz and Prince... Emotive, sexy and cleverly written”, and the single “New Religion” was featured on 6 Official Spotify Playlists and reached over 600k streams.
Their latest release, "Different Kind Of Leather" is available across all major global digital platforms, as is their provocative music video. Produced by Peder Etholm Idsoe, "Different Kind Of Leather" consolidates the band´s signature sound: contemporary yet timelessly crafted lyrics, powerful melodies, a fun and magnetic bass riff and and the super sexy energy exuded by the David Stewart Jr´s unique voice and the drummer Chava´s "hit the spot" grooves. Video was directed by Christian Klein and shot in West Hollywood.
So relax, check in, and enjoy your stay at the Migrant Motel.
