Biography

There are many artists going by the name of “Hope”. www.discogs.com list 14 artist by the name of Hope plus another 9 artist whose name is a variation of Hope. The earliest is from 1977. The last is 2008.

In 1992, an artist by name of Hope whose real name is David Hope appeared with a song called “Generations” with a follow up song in 1993 called “Tree Frog”. Remixed by Hot Tracks in 1994 and appears Roadkill! 1.09 (1994) and Hot Tracks 15th Anniversary Edition 17 CD Set.

Probably the first was an English pop group, formed in 1988 after The Visitors split up. Arguably more successful as they apart from releasing a flexi also cut a vinyl 7” for the now legendary German label A Turntable Friend. That single, called “Funny”, came out in 1992.

Secondly, the Los Angeles-based vocalist Hope song-cries with a humble, quiet-fire lucidity— as autumnal as apple juice but as clear as the rain. Her voice, breathy and bittersweet, occasionally cracks Crow-esque, but is ultimately distinguished by an earthier, spiritual sheen that comes feathered in two shades of pain and survivor-guilt soulfulness. Any skepticism concerning Hope’s sonic sorcery is purged once you lean into her sound’s religion and let the lullabies wash over you like a promise. “The Rain Don’t Last”, Hope’s new single, does just that. Insightful lyrics loom like some silent peninsula, over minimalist, acoustic-soul strumming. The mood here, while at first melancholic, soon shifts to… well…hopeful, as the recent Atlantic signee reminds us that while the sun may not always shine, it’s best to just “let it go.

    Znam ich z Legnickich juwenaliów 2009 i od tamtej pory jestem zachwycony tą energią. Tylko czekałem aż taka kapela pojawi się na Woodstocku i się doczekałem. Szkoda tylko że płytę musieli wydać w Japonii. Niestety, taka jest Polska właśnie ;/
