National Hotel Sound System / Bio

National Hotel Sound System is a groove-driven, somewhat electronic, somewhat experimental musical experience comprised of deep bass tones, warm synth tones, tribal funk drum lines, exotic melodies, polyrhythmic percussion excursions, and epic movements. These Louisville, KY-based multi-instrumentalists conjure and deliver a transcendently underworldly blend of funk, rock, dance, gypsy, dub and space, often with cinematic overtones and psychedelic, mystical undertones, always with intrigue and immediacy.

Founding member, core member, and only consistent member through the years:

ERIC HENSON---drums, cymbals, guitars, synthesizres, effects, samples, field recordings, programming and sequencing, voice, chimes, bells, shakers, lights, beatboxing, jokes, xylophone, loops, design, overall mythos, etc.
