Born on January 15, 1951, in Berkeley, CA, Martha Davis earned great acclaim as the frontwoman and guiding artistic force with the Los Angeles band the Motels during the 1980’s. Her career had begun several years when she joined the Berkeley act Warfield Foxes in 1971 as a vocalist and guitarist. Relocating to Los Angeles in 1975, the band changed their name to the Motels where over the next decade, and after several reincarnations, the Motels would release five records and notch a pair of Top Ten singles with Only the Lonely and Suddenly Last Summer. Now, in their most current reincarnation, Martha Davis and the Motels continue to captivate audiences offering a window back in time. It is no debate that Martha Davis has earned a place as one of the more influential and riveting female artists of the 80’s.
