Hotel California is an Americana project by singer and songwriter Daniel Green, living in a small village in Northern Europe. During lockdown I wrote 24 new tracks, which are released song by song every three weeks starting in January 2021. He loves his life and his life exists within music. Dark moments transform to songs as do the beautiful ones. His biggest sows so far were the Sziget Festival in Budapest and the Vans Varped Tour in the USA. He has produced songs with Ronald Bood (Mando Diao, Kooks).
The latest release is called Soothe My Soul and it brings the light and sunshine. The simple arrangement turns all attention onto Green's vocal, warm and soothing, just as the title of the song suggests. The combination of acoustic guitar and the synthetic instrumentation works out really well here. There is a comforting vibe about the track and you feel completely at ease as you listen. Lyrically, there is nothing complicated, the listener instantly knows what's going on. There's honesty in the direct call for the summer to stay a little longer. Aren't we all longing for the warmer days?
"Oh summer hold me now! Let us bathe in ocean spray.
Oh summer brake the rule. Don’t let us down. Let autumn wait."
