David Hope


David Hope, the Irish folk troubadour with the infamous Celtic growl hails from County Clare in the West of Ireland. Hope has been critically acclaimed as one of the very best Roots-related outfits operating at present, seamlessly blending folk and roots inflections with grittily intelligent lyrics and enviably catchy choruses. Hope released his second full studio album, 'Scarecrow', in early 2013 to rave reviews - with the album reaching No. 3 in the Singer / Songwriter Album Chart on iTunes. Read more on Last.fm
David Hope, the Irish folk troubadour with the infamous Celtic growl hails from County Clare in the West of Ireland. Hope has been critically acclaimed as one of the very best Roots-related outfits operating at present, seamlessly blending folk and roots inflections with grittily intelligent lyrics and enviably catchy choruses. Hope released his second full studio album, 'Scarecrow', in early 2013 to rave reviews - with the album reaching No. 3 in the Singer / Songwriter Album Chart on iTunes. Hope has recently signed with German indie record label, Kanoon music. ‘‘Scarecrow’ will be released in Germany in January 2015 and Hope will embark on a nationwide tour of Germany and Switzerland in Spring 2015. Over the past 12 years, David has gigged & toured extensively in both his native Ireland and mainland Europe, averaging over 200 shows per year.

During this time, Hope has built a reputation as one of the very best live performers on the touring circuit today. Drawing his audience in with his storytelling wit, personality and Irish charm, it is the beauty and depth of his songs, which are delivered with the lived in, almost sepia tone of his impressive voice & the raw elegance of his guitar playing that succeeds in holding audiences long after the show has finished. David has performed a variety of shows across Europe including numerous festivals in Switzerland (Blue Balls Luzern), Germany, Sweden and toured with The Duke Spirit (UK), Sophie Hunger (CH) and Beth Hart (USA). In Ireland, he has toured nationally with folk/blues chanteuse Mary Coughlan (IRL), Barnaby Bright (USA) and opened for a variety of Irish artists such as Damien Dempsey, Mick Flannery, The Stunning, Mundy, Mary Black, John Spillane and whipping boy. David has independently released three critically acclaimed records in recent years. The album, ‘A Picture’, produced in 2007 by Terry Woods (Steeleye Span / The Pogues) received great reviews and airplay and was promoted with appearances on national Irish television.

A 7-track EP ‘Daybreak Someplace’ was released in 2009 to rave reviews. In the summer of 2009, David joined forces with Eoin Jordan (The Céilí All Stars) and David Murphy (The Lost Brothers / John Blek & The Rats) to form what was the original line up of the band, David Hope & The Henchmen. David Hope and band quickly made a name for themselves on the Irish Folk / Americana scene and have played many festivals including the Shannonside Winter Music Festival, Kilkenny Rhythm & Roots Festival, The Westport Folk & Bluegrass Festival, The Cork Folk Festival, Terminal Convention Music & Arts Festival and The Clonakilty International Guitar Festival. In 2011, the band launched their EP 'Hell or High Water' produced by the highly acclaimed musician and producer, Declan Sinnott (Christy Moore / Moving Hearts). The first single 'Hell or High Water' was released in April 2011 to great reviews and radioplay and was followed up with the band’s first music video, produced by IMTV award winning film maker, Shaun O’Connor.
