Biography

The Motels are a new wave band from the Los Angeles area best known for "Only the Lonely" and "Suddenly Last Summer," each of which peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100, in 1982 and 1983, respectively. Their songs "Total Control" reached No. 4 on the Australian charts, and "Danger" reached No. 15 on the French charts in 1980.

Martha Davis (born January 19, 1951), the lead singer, reformed a version of the band called "The Motels featuring Martha Davis" in 1998 and toured as such with various line-ups of musicians.

In 2013, the band was rebranded with a permanent name, Martha Davis and The Motels. That band is touring the world with a line-up of musicians that have been playing with Davis for over 10 years, longer than the original Motels were together.
