Bio

Making her break just last year, 2019 saw Hope D release her debut single “Swim” which was given a high commendation at the Queensland Music Awards and a finalist spot for The Billy Thorpe Scholarship as well as taking home the inaugural QMusic Emerging Artist Award. It also led to 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.

Remaining true to her ability to write personal and confessional lyrics that connect with listeners, this time Hope D has stepped up to the plate with a bit more punch. Now with a full band behind her, Hope shows a different side of her musical style, shocking listeners with a range of different sounds and themes. Inspired by the stories and feelings she experiences, and the stories of those around her, her relatable and personal tales are indie-pop-rock bangers that cut straight to the heart.

New single “Second” gives you an edgy and pulsing track filled with driving guitars, whirling synth, angsty vocals and charm-filled lyricism. “Second” is out Thursday, March 12th on all digital streaming services.

hooks you in from the opening guitar chords, filled with catch af riffs and a sing-a-long chorus to boot

Grabs the attention for sure. The delivery range - and the frantic passion - is great. It builds well, and those ‘80s wash of keys are a nice touch. Keen for more!
