The Motel Pines is an original alternative/indie rock band based out of North Texas formed out of the longtime friendship and musical chemistry of former members of Saints and Sinners lead singer Michael Carrasco and drummer Mark Starling. With the addition of bassist John Rowland and lead guitarist Ben Gaither who both have backgrounds spanning a wide variety of everything from rock to bluegrass, all of the influences combine to create a sound that is familiar yet fresh and unique. Carrasco's songwriting is not the typical boy meets girl, but delves more into the deep waters of life. Carrasco says his interest leans more towards philosophy and science, and that's just what comes out.
The name Motel Pines represents an older motel in an area where nice new businesses are springing up all around it. Not being phased by all the revitalization, it has stayed true to it's old school vibe. "This just seemed like a good metaphor for the band." says Starling. "We're probably way too old to be in a rock band, but here we are." jokes Rowland. You can feel some old school influence as the Motel Pine's music tends to come steeped with a heavy dose of 90s alt rock. Carrasco's powerful unique voice also shows influence from his early days fronting punk bands. Not really worried about influence or age, the Motel Pines just try to write music they enjoy, and hope you will too.

A computer scientist, music producing fellow, Yarley Geffrard was destined to bring positivity back into the world of music. A migrant from Haiti, who faced some of the dangers and hardships of his homeland from his youth, Yarley’s passion for music has manifested from his youth ‘til now. Holding degrees in audio engineering, music, and creative design, Yarley credits a large part of his passion [for music] to his upbringing. Starting out playing the saxophone in church bands and strategically holding his own in various school bands, Yarley has shaped and transformed his talent and is now ready to share it with the world.
When asked why he chose to engage in such a field, Yarley simply stated, “the soul and beauty that comes from music takes me to [Z-space]; a colorful universe within me, that I am only at the tip of exploring.” Music for Yarley is more than just a field, it’s more than just a talent; it’s apart of who he is and that’s what enables him to make his statement in this industry.
Over the course of several years, he has produced countless tracks and full songs, which have been featured on some of the top mainstream networks such as MTV, BET, Oxygen, and The Style Network. But it doesn’t stop there, Yarley has also composed for several high-end commercials including theme song for Frosted Flakes, Chevy, and Smirnoff. He has also been awarded the best ‘Mix and Master of a Song’ by the Institute Of Audio Research.
Yarley once said “in order to build [a] legacy, one must create something that no one else has created.” And he is doing just that. His ultimate goal is to show the importance of music and art around the globe, with the hope of helping those unable to explore the joy of creating music.
Though he has a few artists under his belt, Yarley is currently working on a co-venture with Martial Arts/Hip-Hop artist Zig Short, as well as partnering with the LuxtreauxTM Brands.

Fire Prince Artist Bio
In rural Hawaii, where the rainforest meets the sea, there is a micro-climate where rock, pop, and singer-songwriter genres spark a fire. Arising from these flames you will find Kai Swigart, the artist Fire Prince. With guitar in hand, he stands in full command of this flammable mixture of styles. His latest single, Our Love Will Find a Way, is another phoenix rising up from his many lives reborn. This sizzling track is a result of the love from a past life reappearing in this one, assimilating his poetic lyrics, gritty vocals, and mellifluous muses from two lifetimes into an ambience of rocking castanets.
Swigart hales from stylish genes infusing musing with musicians, writers, and poets. His sisters and cousins are recognized throughout the playlists and libraries you know and love. From Nat King Cole to Lincoln Park, he and his family sing the songs of soul, sweet love, and circumstance.
In 2015, a reconnection with Rebeccah, his soulmate from another lifetime, was the inspiration for this song. “In truth, death is part of life, and should be celebrated, since another one, hopefully with higher vibrations, will soon follow. When we are fortunate enough to find a love from the past in the present, and share its wisdom, truth, and love again somehow; it can help us realize, with even greater hope, that our love will find a way,” Swigart says.
Swigart teamed up with Grammy-awarded producer Charles Brotman, mixing master Joe Marlett, and a stellar cast of studio artists to record and produce this “Wonder Song.” Among these you will find Evan Marks and Allan Phillips vibing down a Latin court and spark.
It’s been a long and winding road, stretching across 948 years; but these many lifetimes of experiences have made Swigart the singer-songwriter, poet, and spiritualist he is today. Indeed, the flammable mixture of rock, pop, and singer-songwriter styles; with a timeless Latin flair; engage your feet, and the rocking castanets.
