Hope grew up in dance and theater before she took to music, first as a singer songwriter then as an opera singer then as a composer and music producer. She loves to collaborate with artists of all kinds on big, daring, expressive works. She currently lives in Chicago, IL where she produces music from her home studio, plays her various instruments, writes songs and teaches composition and music production.
I am an intellectual nomad and an energetic creative who operates best in large scale collaborative works with choreographers, directors, film makers and visual artists in creating lyric neo-mythologies for the contemporary stage and screen. My work is expansive and visceral, inspired by the harmonies of renaissance vocal works, songwriters of the 60s, improvisation in jazz and the futuristic world of music tech.
