In early 2010, Hot Bodies in Motion was formed in a dimly lit Seattle basement. Their commanding blend of blues, soul and throwback R&B is equal parts sensual and fervent. With inescapable guitar hooks, pulsing rhythms, and vintage vibe, the stage is set for vocal seduction as Hot Bodies in Motion both promises and delivers.
Shortly after college graduation, Scott, Tim, & Ben found themselves discussing similar upbringings over a bottle of Maker’s, relishing in their rebellion. It started as a subtle childhood deception. Mixtapes of pop music were camouflaged as the only music allowed in the home. Converted Christian cassettes became passports to the undiscovered lands of The Zombies, Stevie, and D’Angelo as early influences were secretly recorded from the radio waves.
Although born from rebellion, the band hasn’t completely forgotten their roots. Zealous gospel harmonies and earnest lyrics of self-awareness showcase a sound that comes to life with soulful swagger.

THE BGP is a story. It’s a brotherhood. And mostly, it’s a band. Until recently, the blue-eyed soul trio was known only to a regional hodgepodge of college students, audiophiles, and concert-goers in the Pacific Northwest. However, two performances on season 6 of “America’s Got Talent,” exposed the band to nearly 28 million television viewers, 100,000 YouTube views, and countless blog critiques across the nation.
The cornerstone of the band’s odyssey has evolved on the stage where 3-part harmonies, vintage instruments, and a fan-base that shouts and dances nearly as much as the band themselves, have become a hallmark of live performances. Stage jumps from the top of a Fender Rhodes, Jimi Hendrix-style guitar riffs, and an infusion of hip hop dance beats have drawn comparisons to The Script, and more recently Foster the People.
