Hotel Fiction is an Athens, Georgia-based band comprised of Jade Long and Jessica
Thompson. Both women have been playing music for over ten years and began writing,
performing, and playing together in January 2019. In August of that year, Hotel Fiction released
their debut single “Astronaut Kids” which received a warm welcome from the indie scene, and
went on to amass over 2 million global streams.
Hotel Fiction’s sound has often been described as genre-fluid, with indie, pop and rock
influences. With Jade’s dynamic vocals and piano, and Jessica’s complementary lead guitar and
harmonies, the two create a sound that invites listeners to settle in and stay a while. For Hotel
Fiction, the no vacancy sign is never illuminated, everyone is accommodated here.
During quarantine, the two finished recording their debut album Soft Focus which was released
in the fall of 2021. The project was met with praise from Atwood Magazine, Early Rising, A1234,
and We Are the Guard, and was placed on Spotify editorial lists Fresh Finds and Fresh Finds
Rock, where it spent eight weeks straight.
Most recently, Hotel Fiction has supported Beach Fossils, Adam Melchor, flipturn and The
Brooke and The Bluff. The band released their new EP Enjoy Your Stay on October 28, 2022.
