Feeling a bit camera shy


Motel formed when its original members — Rodrigo and Billy — reunited to perform music casually, without long-term career intentions. Both recorded songs in music studios and rehearsals independently for several months before coming together as a group. They then played as a duo in bars in Mexico City, eventually inviting José Damián (drums) and Rubén Puente (bass) to form part of the band.[1]
In March 2006, they released their debut album, Motel, and single, "Dime Ven", both produced by Aureo Baqueiro and co-produced by Jay de la Cueva under the Warner Music label. "Dime Ven" peaked at second place in the Mexican Hot 100 in July 2006, coming just short of Julieta Venegas's "Me Voy". Motel followed with a second single, "Olvidame". The same year, Motel wrote Skimo es el Lugar for the television sitcom Skimo, broadcast by Nickelodeon Latinamerica.
By March 2007, Motel announced through their website the upcoming release of their second album, 17, which was released on November 20, 2007. 17's first single, "Y Te Vas", was released in anticipation in October and listed as a weekly free download on iTunes. "17" was released on January 29 in the United States, after the band had promoted in the U.S. The band also promised to hold a concert soon for those under 18, since their last two conerts were exclusively for adults.
