Obviously I'm a little bit biased but I'd say it went swimmingly.

About The Motel Pines

The Motel Pines is an original alternative/indie rock band based out of North Texas formed out of the longtime friendship and musical chemistry of lead singer/rhythm guitarist Michael Carrasco and drummer Mark Starling. With the addition of bassist John Rowland and lead guitarist Ben Gaither, all of the influences combine to create a sound that is familiar yet fresh and unique. Carrasco's lyrics are not the typical boy meets girl, but delve more into the deep waters of life. Carrasco says his interest leans more towards philosophy and science, and that's just what comes out in his songwriting. You can check it out for yourself as The Motel Pines are thrilled to announce the release of the new full length debut album "A Sad History" available for pre-order now at https://themotelpines.bandcamp.com and everywhere on March 14th, 2017.

The name Motel Pines represents an older motel in an area where nice new businesses are springing up all around it. Not being phased by all the revitalization, it has stayed true to it's old school vibe. "This just seemed like a good metaphor for the band." says Starling. Not really worried about what's happening around them, the Motel Pines just try to write music they enjoy, and hope you will too.
