In this week’s live in-studio, Maddy Erskine chats with Jackson (Jae) Smith about their solo project “Hotel Wifi.”
“Hotel Wifi” has grown from a small solo project started in Smith’s room to a full band project that Smith leads. After playing a house show pre-pandemic, “Hotel Wifi” began growing in popularity in the Fort Collins scene and has gotten to play multiple socially distant shows. In this segment, Smith talks about the inspiration behind the name Hotel Wifi, what it’s like to play in multiple bands and the meaning behind the lyrics they write.
Songs: “Athena’s Theme,” “The Moon is a Lesbian,” “Horsetooth Heart” and “The Quing is Dead” performed live by Hotel Wifi.
