Imagine for a moment that Portishead, Bjork, and Imogen Heap were to have a gay baby. That baby would be Hotel Radio. A mixture of trip-hop, electronic, with a splash of classical instrumentation. Created by Kenzie McKenzie, a female producer, musician and visual artist.
Kenzie began making music fourteen years ago in a small coal mining town in Southern Utah. Since then she has transformed from a back woods acoustic artist evolving into the leader of a Denver based psychedelic rock band, and is now riding the wave of the electronic movement. While on stage Kenzie tap dances her way across her RC-50 Loop station while balancing the harmony and melodies of the guitar, vocals and keyboard.
On July 11, 2013, Hotel Radio released their three-year long project "Tided of Sin". This EP has been a collaboration with Peter Ellis and John Kopczyk. Peter Ellis, a Seattle native with a Bachelor's in performance from University of Michigan, is currently pursuing a Masters of Music at University of Washington. John Kopczyk is a founding member of Annex Of Soul Music and Mile High House Denver. John released with Annex Of Soul on Low Rise Recordings SF.
