Oklahoma City singer, songwriter and musician Chase Kerby and his new band Hotel Nights have a new EP, single and music video out, and the latter is a mood for today's Oklahoma snow day.

As previously reported, Kerby first introduced us to his new project back in the summer with the catchy yet bittersweet debut single "Forget the 80's."

"Hotel Nights was an idea that started forming in my head back in 2016. The name came to me after driving through Tulsa late one night on my way back home. I saw people walking into the cheap motel rooms located on the outskirts of town and wondered what their 'hotel night' was like," Kerby explained in an email.

"I started the band because I wanted to separate myself from my musical past and start fresh. So in July of 2019, I scrapped all the songs I'd been working on and started writing all new material. I've had a lot of great experiences through music (national tours with big acts, being on 'The Voice,' etc.), but none of those experiences defined me as an artist or a person. All the songs I was writing were made to be played with a band."

The lineup for Hotel Nights is Kerby on vocals, guitar, piano, synth and percussion; Garrison Brown on lead guitar and trumpet; Dustin Ragland on drums and percussion; John McCall on bass, organ and piano; and Adam Ray on saxophone and various woodwinds.

Hotel Nights' sophomore single "Pains of the Weekenders" features the same yearning, urgent rock sound evident on "Forget the 80's."

"The song 'Pains of the Weekenders' is about finding yourself in a world of chaos and deciding what is best for you. It's about discovering self awareness, facing the toxicity of the familiar, and finding hope in the end," Kerby said.
