Hotel Books is an ambient indie band from Porterville, CA that revolves around the spoken-word poetry and lyricism of Cam Smith. Delivering intense, cathartic poetry over musical blend of ambient, indie rock and post-hardcore, the band has toured extensively throughout the United State, Europe and Australia. With lyricism unhindered by melody or clean production, Smith uses his high octane vocal delivery as a platform for stories of pain, struggle, and the overall triumph he has found in Love.
A devout Christian, Smith uses Hotel Books as a vessel to deliver his personal story without excluding non-believers. Employing a stellar line-up of bandmates, Smith has released two studio albums and a b-sides collection, the most recent being “Run Wild, Stay Alive” via InVogue Records.
