“saintmotelevision” follows 2014 label debut EP, “My Type,” highlighted by such singles as “Cold Cold Man” and the breakthrough hit title track. “My Type” – which is also featured on Atlantic Records’ “Paper Towns Soundtrack” – was a top 5 AAA and top 10 Alternative radio hit in the US. The song has garnered over 46 million streams on Spotify and was top 40 in such European countries as Germany, Switzerland, and Italy, where it received platinum sales certification. In addition, the “My Type” companion video – directed by Saint Motel frontman AJ Jackson – has drawn more than 12 million views at the band’s official YouTube channel,

Saint Motel came together when AJ Jackson met fellow Southern California film student Aaron Sharp, and together launched a new musical project. Bangkok-born bassist Dak Lerdamornpong and drummer Greg Erwin completed the group, which immediately attracted attention for their striking visual presentations and dynamic indie rock.

Saint Motel has spent much of the past year in the studio and on the road, including high-energy sets at festivals including Indio, CA’s Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, Dover, DE’s Firefly Music Festival, George, WA’s Sasquatch! Music Festival, and Manchester, TN’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival. The band has also made major network TV appearances including NBC’s TODAY, CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and TBS’ CONAN.

Saint Motel is: AJ Jackson (vocals), Aaron Sharp (guitar), Dak Lerdamornpong (bass), and Greg Erwin (drums).
