The Goodnight delivers honest, infectious indie rock gems


In the isolated town of Clancy, Montana, singer/guitarist Dan Murphy and guitarist Justin Benner met in the third grade, and then spent their formative years writing and recording music together.  During the next decade, Murphy and Benner played over 400 shows across the States, released a record in Japan, and built a loyal following before making their exodus to Los Angeles in 2010.  While Benner refined his skills as the band’s engineer and producer, they began playing with drummer Tim Spier in August of 2010, who they had met while touring with his former Drive-Thru Records band, Say No More.  Together, they wrote the honest and melodic songs that would become The Goodnight’s debut EP “Keep Control.”  While touring California, the band met their future bassist, Miles Franco, who relocated from San Jose to join the band in March of 2013.

The Goodnight toured the Western United States in November 2014 to support the release of their new record titled “Owlbum.”  The band continues to build their local Southern California following, while touring regionally and showcasing at festivals such as South By South West in Texas.

GoPro featured The Goodnight’s “Back To Life” music video as their Video Of The Day on 11/9/14.  Major television networks such as E!, MTV, A&E, Lifetime, TLC, and VH1 have used the band’s music, as well as Playstation, who featured the track “The Greatest Place” in their 2014 PS4 commercial campaign.  Songs “Back To Life,” “In The Moment,” and “Hands & Knees,” have received airplay from 50+ mainstream and college radio stations across the country.

The Goodnight continues giving their listeners honest, infectious indie rock gems.  “Owlbum’s” broad spectrum of guitars, grooves, and melodies will quickly become a feel-good favorite for music lovers of all ages.
