In Our Humble Opinion

Hotel Café: Home For Singer-Songwriters

Have you ever heard about Hotel Café before folks? If you haven’t heard about this place, can you guess what kind of place is it? If you think it’s a hotel then you’re wrong. Or if you think it’s a cafe, well you’re wrong again. Give up? Okay, Hotel Café is a live music venue which located on Cahuenga Boulevard, Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. This awesome place already well-known as a home for singer-songwriter and a place where singer-songwriter perform their material in front of small audiences and help them established their music career. And yes, so many awesome singer-songwriter who become Grammy winners or Grammy nominees start their career at the Hotel Café.

If you haven’t heard about this place, let’s start from the history of this place. In 2000, Max Mamikunian and Marko Shelter decide to bought an abandoned place at Cahuenga Boulevard to make a coffee shop. Right! This place began as a coffee shop which provide a lot of coffee and live music performance. Everything’s began when a singer-songwriter, Gary Jules, saw the piano through Hotel Café’s windows and convinced Mike Shafer to give him a chance to performed in this place. Many people watched that performance including The Cary Brothers.

Since then, Hotel Café provides music live performance every nights in a week, from new local singer-songwriter until national touring act from famous musicians. Some of the past notable performances in Hotel Café include Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson, Meiko, Rachel Yamagata, Laura Jansen, Imogen Heap, Laura Marling, Adele, Ed Sheeran, Mumford and Sons, Greg Laswell, and Damien Rice.

As the time goes by, the words spread and people more curious about the place and the live music performance that will held in this place. Then, they found so many hidden talents so people start to take notice. Music industry start to take notice. This place also really well-known as the place where movie or TV music supervisor gathered and try to discover up-and-coming music talent for the projects they’re working on. For many singer-songwriters, being perform in front of music supervisor in low-pressure atmosphere definitely become a great chance and bring a huge benefit for any singer-songwriter’s career.

One of the famous music supervisor, Alexandra Patsavas, or we also known as Shonda Rhime’s favorite music supervisor and I think my favorite too used Hotel Café’s website and venue to discover song and musician that she wants to use for the TV series and movie. Honestly, I’m kind of inspired with the music that she choose for the series, like Grey’s Anatomy and The O.C. From this series, she introduced me to new musician that I never heard before and music that actually really worth to hear.

So, in my humble opinion, Hotel Café definitely has a very important roles for every singer-songwriter who just started their music career, for every music supervisor who wants to discover new talents, and for all music lover who loved to discover new music. I wish there are a lot of place like Hotel Café in every country around the world. Honestly, there’s no place like Hotel Café in my country. So, I wish I can build one like that. Aamiin.

Okay, if you know a place like Hotel Café in your country or any kind of place like Hotel Café, you can shared with us by give your comment in this article. Thank you for giving your time to read this article and I hope you enjoy it. Thank you. 🙂
