Highway Vibes and Nostalgic Tunes: Unveiling Rose Haven Motor Hotel

Today we shed more lights on Rose Haven Motor Hotel, come join us as we get to know more about them and how they came up with their stage name, they also shared where they derive their main source of inspiration.

They derive inspiration through which they find nostalgia in Midwest and Western motels on highways. An eclectic musical life of this artist is marked by the improvement from home-taught nuances to middle school attempts on songwriting and production.

Rose reveals influences from artists such as Frank Ocean and Fleet Foxes, highlighting the irresistible attraction toward a career in music. The creative process is not orchestrated but songs grow naturally from a melody, chord progression.

Rose’s music is hard to describe, marriage of retro country/folk and modern indie rock; dark pop aspects and old-school funk\R&B. Other than music, it involves some work in a guitar store fixing them and nature interaction by gardening while at the same time enjoying the attraction of visual art.

In the future, Rose mentions release stimuli – another single in spring and EP. To the fans, a heartfelt thank you: Stay tuned tomorrow for more! Rose Haven Motor Hotel is your ticket to a sonic adventure even as you sit back and relax.

What is your stage name
Rose Haven Motor Hotel

Is there a story behind your stage name?
Not as much a story as just a feeling/aesthetic. It calls back to the vintage highway motels scattered through the midwest/western United States. It’s meant to convey an aesthetic of rugged highway nostalgia & represent the neverending road to an ambiguous destination.

Where do you find inspiration?
I find my inspiration in a wide range of musical styles and eras. Anything that makes you feel something. Whether that’s a sound, a look, a memory, whatever.

What was the role of music in the early years of your life?
Music has always been a big part of my life. It began with singing and a particular interest in harmony, encouraged by my father. Guitar & drums came next, making use of a natural sense for rhythm & melody. Then songwriting & music production became a passion starting in high school.

Music has always been a big part of my life.

Are you from a musical or artistic family?
My father has always been an active singer, my great grandmother had a piano in her house & played by ear (like I do now with the guitar), and other members of my extended family have had stints with different instruments or bands when they were younger.

Who inspired you to be a part of the music industry?
No one in particular, I think. Music has a pull I will never be able to get away from, so it only made sense. I also came up seeing an unprecedented era of creativity and independence from artists I loved and looked up to like Frank Ocean, Fleet Foxes, Local Natives, Big KRIT (from my home state)

How did you learn to sing/write/to play?
Much of what I’ve learned musically has been self taught by ear – taking the music I loved and finding ways to make it come alive in my hands. I took guitar lessons for a few months as a kid until the teacher showed me a technique to figure out songs by just listening, which is all I really needed.

I played drums through school, which really honed a sense of natural rhythm. My writing is always just a study and attempt to emulate writers I look up to and try to convey feeling the way they can.

What was the first concert that you ever went to and who did you see perform?
I’ve been to so many, I’m not sure. But I grew up in church, so it was probably a group performing there!

How could you describe your music?
My music soaks up the tones, sounds & feelings of everything I’ve always been into. It’s a combination of so many things. Songs like Blue Moon & Nebraska may have shades of vintage country & folk, but the next songs may carry more of a modern indie rock sound. Then another release may use more dark pop elements or old school funk/R&B.

Describe your creative process.
Most of my songs start with a chord progression or melody and build from there. The words sort of fill themselves in to fit the feeling of what I’m hearing.

What is your main inspiration?
My main inspiration is really just all of music and the incredible power it has on the human brain & body.

What musician do you admire most and why?
So many, for many different reasons! Artists like Frank Ocean for unparalleled creativity, musicians like Stevie Wonder for sheer talent, writers like Robin Pecknold of Fleet Foxes for a beautiful mastery of language, and people like Madison Cunningham for these things and a unique use of tone in the production of her music.

Did your style evolve since the beginning of your career?
It has evolved greatly. It has always been a unique combination of the wide variety of styles I listen to, so it will probably always be evolving.

Who do you see as your main competitor?
I don’t really view other artists as competitors. If anything, my competitor would just be the challenge of getting my music out to the world!

What are your interests outside of music?
I love the guitar in music but also as the physical instrument itself. I work at a guitar store repairing guitars all day. I also have a strong passion for nature & gardening and for visual art.

If it wasn’t a music career, what would you be doing?
I would either go all in on guitar repair/building, or I would figure out a way to be a small scale farmer/gardener.

What is the biggest problem you have encountered in the journey of music?
The biggest challenge in today’s music world, especially when you don’t live in a major city, is just being heard. It can be very difficult to be noticeable in a sea of constant new media from all directions.

If you could change one thing in the music industry, what would it be?
It would be the same thing that would cure most industries – the removal of greed as the driving force for decisions.

Why did you choose this as the title of this project?
Obviously, it comes from the lyrics, but I think it conveys the general vibe you can expect from the song.

What are your plans for the coming months?
Over the next few months, I will actually have another single coming out and an EP planned for the Spring.

Do you have any artistic collaboration plans
I am regularly collaborating with many of my favorite local artists & friends.

What message would you like to give to your fans?
Thank you for listening and stick around for more!
