About Saint Motel

Saint Motel is an American alternative-pop band whose work incorporates dramatic visuals—from costumes in live performances to cutting-edge video tech. ∙ Frontman A/J Jackson, who started writing music in second grade, met lead guitarist Aaron Sharp at film school in Los Angeles, and they formed Saint Motel in 2007. ∙ The band made a video for each of the six songs on their debut EP, 2009’s ForPlay, with Jackson directing three of them. ∙ In 2014, the title track to their EP My Type became a Top 10 US hit. ∙ With their second LP, 2016’s saintmotelevision, they created interactive companion videos—called “virtualizers”—for each track, making it the first-ever virtual reality album. ∙ Their single “Move” rose to No. 3 on Billboard’s Adult Alternative Songs chart in 2016, and it was also a top 20 Rock and Alternative radio hit. ∙ In 2020, Saint Motel opened New World, a virtual space featuring a room for each song on their third album, The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.
