Markus Paterson, Kyle Echarri, and Moophs have just dropped an R&B collaboration entitled “Hotel Room,” a single about feeling lost, empty, and downcast.


Coupling Markus’ and Kyle’s soulful vocals with a neo-soul vibe from Moophs on production, “Hotel Room” perfectly encapsulates the gloom of coping with being left behind by a loved one.


“I wrote ‘Hotel Room’ about a specific time in my life when I was trapped by vices and surrounded by the wrong crowd. Looking back on it, I’m proud of myself for getting out of that hole and out of it came a pretty alright sounding song,” Markus disclosed. “I think it’s the best time to release this song because I’m a responsible father now, and it’s a reminder of who I was, not who I am now.”


Kyle echoed Markus’ sentiment about the song being personal to him and said he wants to share it because of its relatability. He said, “It’s my first time releasing something that is this personal, and I feel like a lot of people go through these kinds of hard times.”


Meanwhile, song producer Moophs talked about how working with the two actor-singers was a breeze. The Tarsier Records label head said, “Markus wrote a song and sent me a voice note, I produced a beat around it, and Kyle penned a second verse and hopped on the track. Their songwriting chemistry together in the studio is magical.”


One of Tarsier Records’ original class of artists in 2017, Markus has numerous releases under his belt with the label, including his “B-SIDE” EP, which has garnered over 3 million streams on Spotify alone. Kyle, on the other hand, introduced his second full-length album, “New Views,” last year. Moophs has worked with Bugoy Drilon, Inigo Pascual, Russell Reyes, and other artists for various collabs in 2021.


Check out “Hotel Room” by Markus, Kyle Echarri and Moophs, out now on digital streaming platforms worldwide. For updates, follow Tarsier Records on its social media accounts @tarsierrecords.
