Bio

After breaking onto the scene in late 2019 with her debut single “Swim”, alt-pop-rock artist Hope D captivated audiences with her eclectic capability to create purposeful, confessional and captivating music.

This release led her to taking home the inaugural QMusic Emerging Artist Award, performances at BIGSOUND 2019, Splendour In The Grass, Laneway Festival and King Street Crawl, as well as sold-out headline shows in her hometown Brisbane. 2020 saw her second release aptly named “Second”, and follow up “Common Denominator” once again wowing and surprising fans by her change in sound, but maintaining the same inviting charm and razor-sharp wit through her authentically honest, raw and relatable songs.

Despite COVID-19 causing endless rescheduled tours and shows, in September and October Hope D sold out 5x consecutive headline shows in her hometown of Brisbane before rounding out what was a bizarre and impressive year with latest single “Miscommunicate” (out now).

usually, it's the showstopping, heart-racing moments that take centre stage in a Hope D track. but here, we get to appreciate your knack for clever songwriting and that stunning voice of yours! what a treat.

HOPE D does specifics better than most, and the devil is in the details here. Really builds too plays like a song from afar at first gives that dreamy affect than it drops in, clean and crisp vocals as well so good to hear and enjoy every word sang.

I'm drinking whites / and I'm picking fights - that's another great line from Hope! Make that another great song, actually. It doesn't rocket along like 'Second' but there's the same charm and promising star power.
