Empress Hotel Announces Tour


Empress Hotel, a band composed of a pair of brothers and a bunch of good friends, are about to embark on a tour that passes through SXSW. The tour promotes their new EP via Park the Van, and as you can hear in “Bells Ring“, the bands sound is very inspired in 70’s pop and maybe even Prince, Roxy Music or Ace. The band is made up of Patrick Hodgkins on bass, Leo DeJesus on keys and percussion, Julie Williams on keys, Micah McKee on lead vocals and guitar, Ryan Rogers on guitar and Eric Rogers on drums.
