in a constant state of embarrassment. 

Hotel Shmotel is the music project of South Jersey-based guitarist and songwriter Kyra Maffia. What started as mindless songwriting in the backseat of her Toyota Corolla in her college campus parking garage quickly became a focused endeavor, recording countless demos, honing her sound, and cultivating a devoted online following. Soon thereafter, she began collaborating digitally with fellow local musicians to craft her full-band soundscape, culminating in her debut single, "Proving", in 2022. With an eager new backing lineup, Hotel Shmotel is now embarking upon their long-awaited live debut throughout the Philadelphia and New Jersey music scenes.

Inspired by the dreamy guitar sounds of modern bedroom & indie rock, combined with an undying love for 90s grunge and hard rock, Hotel Shmotel aims to provide a sound that can have you rocking out one moment and crying the next.
