Bio

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

The Canberra based 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. This captured the attention of triple j Unearthed presenters and listeners, securing her a position in the platform's 2019 NIDA music video competition.

Her sophomore single ‘Unstable’ and rhythmic folk track‘L.I’ received praise from Declan Byrne, gaining triple j airtime on Home and Hosed.

Since then, the indie-folk artist has welcomed the addition of a full band, winning fans over with relatable catchy lyrics and dynamic performances. Sharing stages with the likes of Greta Stanley, Art vs Science, and local outfit ARCHIE.

it's a personal tale that just explodes and that cathartic break out around 2:30 is life giving.

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.
