The Band

If you've ever seen Back Seat Hotel live, you know you can expect honest music with meaningful lyrics. They're all about acoustic instruments, nothing gets covered up with a wall of effects. And that is exactly what makes them so special! This organic combination between guitar, cello and cajon is just destined to be an amazing listening experience. With a colorful mix of folk rock, reggae, ska and punk everybody has something to obsess over. Formed in 2018, this Austrian music project slowly picked up their significant style while experimenting with their overall group formation. Consisting out of three passionate musicians to date, only time will tell, what this acoustic indie folk band still got in store!

  • Genre: Acoustic Indie Folk
  • Location: Graz, Austria
  • Founded: 2018

our creative source (lead vocals, guitar)

Armin is the founder of Back Seat Hotel and the heart & soul of our band. His creative spark is giving birth to our songs and his unique voice is perfectly conveying the message of our music to the audience - gently enclosed by bittersweet harmonies from his guitar.


our classical spirit (cello, background vocals)

Andrea and her cello have enriched our musical style and refined our one-of-a-kind sound since 2020. With her classical background she moves virtuously within a wide variety of genres playing passionate melodies, groovy basslines as well as rhythmical or melodic accents. Occasionally you can also listen to her soft female voice.


our rhythmical genius (cajon/drums, background vocals)

Tobiasʼ special mix of percussion instruments and his rhythmical ideas are essential to our songs. His fascinating performance allows for the music to groove on - during our spontaneous street concerts even with nothing other than a cajon. And every now and then you get to enjoy his legendary backing vocals.
