It took me a few listens to really get this wonderful six track offering from singer-songwriter Hope. What I didn’t get initially is that this is quiet music. This is about the songs. Not taking anything away from productions that are multiple and unlimited everything with the volume cranked to 10, but, sometimes it’s just great to hear the song versus the production.

I Hope(pun intended) that you will enjoy this music as much as I have. You can listen and purchase a copy of Hope here.
