Rose Hotel

Rose Hotel’s label debut A Pawn Surrender sees Atlanta-based singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Jordan Reynolds claiming her agency with a 10-song set of nuanced indie-rock songcraft that pulls from a palette of psychedelic shimmer and folk influence via her Southeastern roots. It’s psychedelic indie folk with an alternative edge and a drive to pay homage to the legends of the art form — using the trappings of the genre not as source material, but as ornamentation.

Due out June 7 on Strolling Bones Records, Reynolds co-produced A Pawn Surrender with Atlanta-based engineers Damon Moon (Standard Electric Recorders) and Graham Tavel (Mirror Mirror Recording) and tapped acclaimed Athens, Georgia producer Drew Vandenberg (Faye Webster, S.G Goodman, Kristine Leschper) for mixing and additional production. The group of studio musicians she assembled nods to her time spent in DIY scenes throughout the Southeast, collectively known for their work with Margo Price, S.G. Goodman, Caitlin Rose, Orville Peck, Rich Ruth, Neighbor Lady, Night Palace, CDSM, and more.

From her hometown of Bowling Green, Kentucky, Reynolds started her music career playing keys for psych-rockers Buffalo Rodeo when she was 19: “We bought an Econoline van that didn’t even have seats in it for like $1,500. We fixed it up, and I learned how to be in a band. I learned how to communicate with sound guys, how to fix a pedal board on the fly, how to be the only girl on a tour with 10 dudes. It was a super formative time for me."

Reynolds has since built a career as a side musician playing keys and guitar and singing for acts like Neighbor Lady, Susto, Faye Webster, and She Returns From War — all while continuing to record as Rose Hotel. Her 2017 collaboration with Rich Ruth resulted in Rose Hotel’s first EP, Always a Good Reason, which she followed with her self-released debut album I Will Only Come When It’s a Yes in 2019. With her first full-length, Paste Magazine listed Rose Hotel among “25 Atlanta Indie Rock Bands You Need to Know,” praising, "It's a miraculous mix of psych-rock, pop and jazz that shouldn’t work, but Reynolds and her band knit them all tightly together for a full, bold sound.
