Bio

Slowly developing her raw and authentic style over the years, Hope Wilkins has recently emerged out of Canberra with a natural and exciting talent for songwriting. Now, she’s ready to showcase her unique and powerful voice that’s already begun capturing the attention of the country.

Drawing influence from the likes of Angie McMahon, Middle Kids, and Dermot Kennedy, the singer-songwriter released her anthemic debut single ‘Waste’ in March 2019, mesmerising audiences with a set of extraordinarily performed falsetto runs over a folk-pop melody.

Since then, the indie-folk artist has been building quite the name for herself in the Capital with her honest lyricism and dynamic performances, landing her and her band a string of shows in the city, playing alongside the likes of Greta Stanley, Hollie Col, and Art vs Science.

Hope is gearing up for what will be a big and busy 2020 with new releases and shows on the horizon, so keep an eye on her to see something special.

Great to hear from you lady. I love the rawness you bring through that guitar and into your songwriting. It must be liberating to let it all out.

Hope's the sort of songwriter who cuts straight to the quick, writing songs that speak straight to the heart of a feeling. L.I is clothed in hurt and frustration which ripples in Hope's vocals.
