Hotel Apache is an independent pop trio formed in 2016 consisting of Jared Ramos, Steven Darling, and Ryan Garcia.
Taking influence from artists like Prince, Michael Jackson, New Edition, and The Police, the boys in HA! released their first single, 'cigarettes', to the world, coining the genre "California Pop." Shortly after the release of their debut single, 'cigarettes' quickly began organically circulating through various outlets, including some of Spotify's official curated playlists. Following the debut, HA! released their own rendition of 'IWD4U' in honor of recently deceased pop icon, Prince. This led to some major attention from multiple media outlets and labels, prompting the guys to continue releasing music. 'Hotels' was the product of that affirmation, quickly becoming the summer anthem for many listeners. In early 2017 they released a 5 song EP "I'll Explain Later" which included new fan favorites, "stay" and R&B ballad "maybe, one day". The California Pop band plans to release their second EP entitled "Wasted Thunder" later this year.
