The Motel Pines - Circadianism




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.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around
