THE GREEN CAR MOTEL is Rick Garcia and Rene Reyes. Blending both English and Spanish they've managed to forge their own way creating what ENTERTAINMENT TODAY described as "No Border Rock." They grew up in San Diego Texas, located in the heart of south Texas. They would later relocate to Austin for a few years then move onto Los Angeles where they now make their home. Together and seperately they have written and performed songs for such major films as COLLATERAL, BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN, NEXT, ILLEGAL TENDER, THE INTERPRETER, BANGKOK DANGEROUS, DOMINO, SAVING SILVERMAN, GLORY ROAD, BLIND HORIZON and TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE to name but a few.
They adopted their name after Garcia observed a parked car alongside his street that was being used as a motel or sorts. 'A place where transitory characters found respite" states Garcia. "Always moving and always writing a new chapter" he concludes. We found the story of the car and our own musical journey ran parallel and so we checked in. It's a place where we let the music play and where the story continues to unfold.
